The nonprofit organization (RED) uses social media and Hootsuite to raise global awareness and present people with actionable ways to help fight AIDS. One recent campaign, EAT (RED). DRINK (RED). SAVE LIVES, had over 500 businesses in over 120 cities participate for ten days by offering red dishes and cocktails in order to raise money for the Global Fund to fight AIDS. The campaign incorporated digital media into the fold in many ways, such as branded hashtags, sweepstakes, and five Twitter takeovers by celebrity chefs.

By using Hootsuite during the  EAT (RED). DRINK (RED). SAVE LIVES campaign they achieved amazing results over the 10 day period:

  • Hundreds of millions of media and PR impressions
  • 215 million potential social media impressions
  • 7 new media partners
  • 5 celebrity chef Twitter takeovers
