We love highlighting creative and helpful uses of foursquare. 4sqDay contributor Mareks Matisons recently wrote about a recent example on his blog.

Here is a snippet:

In this weekend all my country is celebrating – Latvian state had officially been proclaimed on November 18, 1918. “Staro Riga” Light Festival is taking place these days in Riga, capital of the Latvia.

And for the short weekend of national holidays SEB bank has chosen to run their first campaign in foursquare to support SOS Children’s Villages in a different manner. You are welcome to visit a newly opened branch of the bank, check in and by doing that particular check-in you are donating – the bank will support SOS Villages once more and promised to transfer 1 lat (amount equal approx. 1.5 USD) to the NGO for each and every check-in.
