Google pulls power of database + search for Haiti relief

15 Jan

I find this amazing, how Google’s putting its weight behind the humanitarian effort with a simple Crisis Response page. Three examples:

1.  Google’s Crisis Response – Just two search boxes open up for the name of the person.

2. Disaster Relief Page – It also has a page filled with key disaster relief contact information – links and ways to donate via text messaging.

3. Citizen Tube – This wonderful citizen journalism hub on YouTube is has a great way to monitor reports.
