Disruption for social good -- Disaster Relief

In many disasters, millions of dollars are donated to support relief effort. The governments pledge millions and as a result, so you would expect supplies to be plenty and survivor to have what they need right?

Boston Strong

Anyone free to help out in a project?

Boston Marathon is something very personal to me, it is in the city that I lived in for years, and I have many friends and family there. I've been to many Boston Marathons and met many amazing people.

I would like to collect positive stories from victims, witnesses or just heroes.

Anyone free to do me a very big favor to walk down Boylston Street to chat with the people there?

I want to collect stories to write an e-book to raise more funds for survivors. I need photos, videos, interviews or whatever you can help get.
