ground_zeroThe 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America is coming and the somber remembrances of that horrible day are likely to raise anew a raft of travel fears. We’ll be talking about how 9/11 affects you and your kids and how you cope with travel fears on a special Labor Day edition of #TMOM Monday.

Because we believe that talking is the best way to cope with our great national pain and our personal fears, we invite you to join us at 9 pm ET when we share our travel fears on Twitter and help one another cope with the trauma of 9/11. 

Rather than giving away a prize on this party, we’re giving a donation to the Twin Towers Orphan Fund, which provides long-term higher education assistance and helps meet mental and physical health care needs for children who lost a parent in the World Trade Center, at the Pentagon, or onboard the four downed airliners.


For every 10 comments we get on this story, we’ll donate $1 to the fund, up to $100.

Wondering what the heck is a Twitter party? We can help.

Party Details:

WHEN:  Sept. 5, 9-10 pm ET (8-9 pm CT; 7-8 pm MT; 6-7 pm PT)

WHO: Panelists @KimOrlando  @CindyRichards

For every 10 RSVPs we get on this party, will make a donation to the Twin Towers Orphan Fund. Please leave a comment below telling us how 9/11 affected you and your family.

And please help us spread the word about this good cause by tweeting:
