Digital Media in A Time of Disaster

If you’re working in digital, no matter what your title may be, you’re in a position of great influence. You’re a part of the creation and the start of movements on the web, where a billion people can see, share, interact with and evaluate what it means to them. We’re here at SXSW, seeing digital at its fullest potential and it couldn’t be a more opportune time for some of the brightest minds in technology to gather in one place. Japan needs our help. And as far away as the island may seem, the internet allows us to be nothing short of a click away to make a difference.

There are a lot of ways you can help, here are just a few to help you get started:
Donating through Amazon and the Red Cross

Text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation

Donate or Retweet: Architecture for Humanity’s Cameron Sinclair will announce a $75,000 commitment from donors to rebuilding from the Japanese earthquake, along with a personal pledge: If the donation link bit.ly/sxsw4JP is re-tweeted 100,000 times, he’ll donate 10% of his own salary.

We kindly ask that readers comment with more ways to help, your action is appreciated more than we can say.
