Yelp helps Chicago non-profits

What makes Yelp different from other review sites out there? It’s the community. A community of passionate locals who strongly believe in supporting local businesses and organizations in their city.

So it wasn’t surprising to hear that more than 500 Yelpers came out for the “Yelp.Community: Causes for a Party” in Chicago last week. Thirty-five of Chicago’s most interesting non-profit and charitable organizations mingled with civic-minded Yelpers who were eager to learn about how to get involved.

Most impressive was the fact that the majority of Yelpers were interested in multiple causes resulting in roughly 1,500 new sign ups for our participating organizations.

We’d like to give a big thanks to Elliott and his team over at See3 Communications for producing this great video.
