  • San Francisco Zoo - In support of the Summer of Social Good campaing to benefit The Humane Society, LiveSTRONG, Oxfam America and WWF, Hyatt jumped on board and sponsored a Tweetup Tour called #HyattforGood. The tour stopped in 5 cities. Although there are usually not ticket fees for tweetups, in this case, Mashable staffed the events with some of its key social media gurus, and had a limited number of tickets available in exchange for a donation. In its first charitable initiative, Mashable raised $55,000 through social media, including the Tweetup tour. The point is here, that people love to rally around a cause. Whether your tweetup is a networking event, or as in this case, a fundraising event, providing a venue for your online supports to meet in real-life it a good thing.
