This past Thrusday I had the pleasure of attending the “#Thumbsup4Homeless” #SMTulsa event, which was part of the Third Thursdays monthly poetry reading event; a monthly event occuring the third Thursday of each month at various venues around Tulsa; this week’s event was held at the Ida Red Boutique in Brookside. This particular Third Thursday event was special as event organizers partnered with popular Tulsa social media meetup group Social Media Tulsa (#SMTulsa) and the Thumbs up for the Homeless group. Attendees brought USB thumb drives for Tulsa’s homeless. Friend of #SMTulsa founder Cheryl Lawson says, “When you are living on the streets it’s nearly impossible to carry files and paperwork. Many people experiencing homelessness keep their resumes and important documents on USB thumb drives. Something as simple as a flash drive can be a huge help.”
Event goers were graced with a reading of several inspirational poems by poet Regina Ann, from her new book ” Poetic Essences “. Popular local poet Randall J. Weiss performed a reading of several of his fun, entertaining and quarky poems.
Oh….you didn’t think I’d just go right home after the event, did you? It was then time for an “after party” at the roof top bar at the Mayo Hotel downtown. 🙂
