Joining Forces, Saving Lives
When Hurricane Harvey slammed into Houston, emergency dispatchers said: "Call for rescue. We aren't checking Twitter." Survivors, unable to get through to 911, did what came naturally - they turned to social media.
We saw their cries for help, and we answered. In one hour, we launched an interactive, live updated map so volunteer boat rescuers knew exactly where to go.
One week. 700 volunteers. 5,000 lives saved.
When disaster strikes, the world comes together to help. Will you join us?
