"It was a truly humbling experience to see the support that the online community had," Alberto said.

“For every time this tweet gets RTed, I will donate $1 to the @RedCross #sachat.”

That was a tweet by Wimer Alberto ’09, resident director of Broome Hall, in Newing College.

It was four days after Superstorm Sandy, and people all over the country were looking for ways to help.

Alberto challenged his colleagues — student-affairs professionals around the country following #sachat — to help him raise money for a donation.

The Red Cross would get $1 for every retweet, he pledged.

After 506 retweets, $1,000 had been raised.

Alberto donated $350, while $650 came from colleagues who matched his pledge.
