One of our previous #BLOTW’s contributed a guest article to Agency FAQ’s about the impact of BigLoserIndia on Twitter. Read all about it How the power of community building, cause marketing and social media combined to contribute to a phenomenal success story. By Nanda Kishore Sethuraman, in afaqs. Feel free to comment here or on aFaqs 🙂
Episode 34 of the #bglsr podcast is the wrap up for S01 and it’s FUN! Don’t take our word for it, listen now! We’ve got the names of the biggest donors for charity as well as the folks who lost the most weight. Are you on it? We’ve got three former #BLOTW’s sharing a little bit with us about their #bglsr experience AND, the cherry on top: We’ve also got our new jingle – recorded outside our host Komala‘s after the tweetup by @ItemMom, @ItemDad, @Sashg, @hiway, @sengupta, @netra, @SamuraiSingh, @suddentwilight, @mehulved, @Prashantdr, @b50, me, i.e. @chhavi, and led by the irrepressible @imayavi (who “had a figure in mind”). Listen loud 😀
(@ShaaqT, we missed you and @Mokshjuneja after you left early! Did I miss anyone?)
What began as one tweet on Wednesday 2nd Feb 2011 morphed into a one-year long charity + fitness initiative that raised – and paid – Rs130,000 to charity. Along the way, loads of people had loads of fun. Some saw the results of being fitter – a better, happier life. Some, self included, started off well but lost their way somewhere in the middle. We will find our way soon.
With this, Season 1 of Bigloser is over. We are now on a break for some time. Season 2? Let’s see. But that shouldn’t stop you from reaching your fitness goals, 24×7 and 365 days a year. So go ahead, be a bigloser and we hope to see you on the other side!
Meanwhile, you can still use the tracker on the website to monitor your progress.
BigLoser India will have it’s season finalé tweet up on Sunday, February 5. Join us at 11 a.m. at Komala’s in Lower Parel (High Street Phoenix, across Costa coffee on the lower level beneath PVR) and let’s catch up, congratulate each other and share the final tally of pledges 🙂
Are you in?
Comment and rsvp please 😀
A big thanks to everyone! We’ve hit Rs141,001 in total donations in Bigloser! Yay! Almost all of these monies have been acknowledged as received by HelpTrust and RangDe has its own page listing the payments received. Some participants have chosen to give money to their own charity and we trust they have fulfilled their pledges with payments to these charities.
|This is the final list of people (Twitter handles) and the amount they paid in Bigloser.
Here is the break-up by charity
Episode 33 of the #bglsr podcast is the season’s finale – but worry not, we’ll be back with a bite sized roundup once the pledges and donation count is in. Whether you lost or gained weight this year, @Sashg has 7 to-do’s for life! And @b50‘s got the roundup of what went down in the last weeks! We also have a special #blotw and you can read @ShaaqT‘s excellent post here after you hear the podcast. Download/stream/share…
