The patio of Fujimar Restaurant was packed and hopping 6pm and into the evening, as Refugees International(RI) held its first “Tweet Up”, a casual mixer with RI staff, supporters, Young Humanitarians, bloggers, journos and NGO-folks.Â Attendees enjoyed the sushi restaurant’s happy hour specials, both drinks and food, not to mention the finally cooler temperatures (all though traffic wasn’t as kind as the weather), while mingling with new people and talking about the purpose of RI, the advocates’ missions to Columbia, the Congo, Sudan and more.
As it was such a success, RI plans to have more Tweet Ups in the future. Please follow them on Twitter @RefugeesIntl.
