TSLAC is raising funds for families in need this holiday season. Books, baked goods, and crafts made and donated to the sale by agency staff will be sold at the Lorenzo de Zavala State Archives and Library Building, across the east entrance to the State Capitol, 1201 Brazos Street, Austin. The event is free to attend, but sale prices will vary. TSLAC will donate proceeds to three needy families via Foundation Communities in Austin.

Twitter users: If you can’t make it to the sale, please help us promote the event by trending #ChristmasFamilies and directing followers to @TSLAC!

What is a Tweetup?

A tweetup is a social gathering of Twitter users, a.k.a. "tweeps". Tweeps help promote the event by trending the event's hashtag (ex: #ChristmasFamilies). They also attend the event, tweet about it while they're there, and connect with other tweeps.

Do I need to be a Twitter user (a "tweep") to attend a tweetup @TSLAC?

No. A tweetup uses Twitter as the primary means of communication, but a tweetup @TSLAC is open to everyone. You do not have to be active on Twitter to attend. In fact, you do not even have to have a Twitter account set up. You can, however, set up a Twitter account at anytime for free. Visit to get started.

Who are the families you're raising funds for?

Foundation Communities in Austin has matched TSLAC with three local families. Out of respect for their privacy, we are withholding their names but sharing with you some important details, including their needs and wishes: 2013 Christmas Families.
