Actor LeVar Burton, best known for his role in Star Trek: The Next Generation and co-host of the Tweetup said, “I know from experience that members of the entertainment community can be counted on at times like this, and my partners and I are dedicated to doing what we can”.

Talent and other Sundance Festival attendees are invited to gather and “Tweet” messages encouraging their followers to make donations to the organizations that are accepting funds related to the Haitian disaster. Proceeds raised from corporate sponsors of the event will be earmarked to benefit the victims. A -list celebrity attendees listed below.
