I love summertime, don’t you? Despite the wretched heat, there’s lots of sun (as a Los Angeles native, I appreciate any dose of Vitamin D I can get), BBQs, delicious seasonal fruits and veggies, and…patriotism!

From Memorial Day to Independence Day, the summer months give us time to reflect on our nation’s greatness and give special thanks to those serving our country—our troops, veterans, and military families.

It is in this spirit that we bring to you our very first Tweetup entitled:

Oh Say Can You See the Cause Marketing
#C4Gchat | Hosted by @Companies4Good
Tuesday, July 17 at 1 pm ET

We’re spotlighting some patriotic cause marketing campaigns, and we’d love to have you join in on the fun. Here are our guests:

Got Your 6—a Hollywood-led campaign aimed at bridging the civilian-military divide—will be tweeting via @GotYourSix.

The Helping Heroes Home campaign—a partnership with AT&T, Causes.com, and the nonprofit Cell Phones for Soldiers—that unlocks a $2 donation to Cell Phones for Soldiers per video watched. @Causes will be participating.

Never been to a Tweetup? Here’s how it works:

  1. Go to Twitter (or Twitter platform such as Tweetdeck or Hootsuite)
  2. Create and save a search for #C4Gchat
  3. On Tuesday, July 17 at 1 pm ET return to the #C4Gchat search you’ve created.
  4. Watch the conversation!
  5. If you want to participate, send questions to your host (us--@Companies4Good). We’ll collect them and ask them to our esteemed guests.

You can participate from anywhere in the world, and connect with cause-marketing folks of different stripes.

We hope you’ll join us. If you have questions, email us: partnerships@networkforgood.org

See you on the Twitterverse!
