Portland related because we're convened in NW right now.

Want to help Haiti survivors but don't have $$ or time to join us in person? You can help online w/o leaving your home!

Go to haitianquake.com and follow instructions. Or BeExtra and follow instructions. Help families find their missing loved ones! Haitian Quake Converter helps aggregate missing persons posts from all over the internet into one google database for easy searching and updating. BeExtra asks you to compare submitted photos of missing loved ones with recent crowd photos of the Haiti disaster to see if you recognize anyone in the pictures (dead or alive.) Take an hour, check it out! There is lots to do!

PS If you know how to read French, there are entries in the database that need your attention. We have to skip some of them here as our French grammar is rusty.
