Microsoft Launches HelpBridge Disaster Relief App (video)
Microsoft has launched a new Disaster Relief application this week
called HelpBridge, which has been created to simplify the process of
notifying loved ones by simultaneously sending an e-mail and SMS to the
communities you select & posting a message to your Facebook wall.
Watch the video by Microsoft after the jump to learn more about the
HelpBridge project and see it in action.
"When a disaster strikes, those not immediately impacted often
want to help. HelpBridge makes that easy by connecting you with some of
the world’s leading disaster relief organizations and by providing
multiple ways to help – text-to-give donations, larger contributions via
PayPal, and goods donations.”
If you’d prefer to give your time rather than money, HelpBridge will
also show you how you can volunteer in support of disaster relief
efforts near where you live and nationwide. For more information on the
new HelpBridge jump over to the Microsoft website for details.
