Fifty college students from across the United States traveled to New York and New Jersey to help rebuild communities devastated by the storm. “Spring Fix” kicked-off on Sunday, March 17 and culminated on Saturday, March 23 with a special concert at Six Flags Great Adventure. The week of service generated over 2,500 tweets before the on-air specials even started running. Read on to see the top 25 #SpringFix tweets. More
