NOWDATE=`date +%Y-%m-%d`

# dump each database to its own sql file
for DB in $(echo 'show databases' | mysql -hhostname -uuser -password=password --batch -N)
mysqldump -hhostname -uuser --password='password' --quote-names --create-options --force $DB > /backup-directory/$DB.sql
# tar all the databases into $NOWDATE-backups.tar.gz
tar -czf /destination-directory/$NOWDATE-backup.tar.gz /backup-directory/
# upload all databases
/usr/bin/s3cmd put /backup-directory/$NOWDATE-backup.tar.gz s3://my_bucket/$NOWDATE/
# rotate out old backups
/usr/bin/s3cmd del --recursive s3://my_bucket/$LASTDATE/

Edit: Sorry again for not clarifying use of s3cmd (thanks joshuakraemer).
