I’m sitting in O’Hare on a layover, trying to get this post done before boarding, so forgive the brevity.
While I was in Chile, one if the guys who led the digital disaster response to the earthquake, Pedro, was basically our nightly tour guide. He took us to completely awesome restaurants, for example — but unfortunately, one night, while we were all out eating, his backpack with his laptop was stolen.
I insisted that he post a paypal button so we could all help him recover from this loss. I’ve been robbed before, and I know what a difference it can do for your soul when the community shows up. I’ve also been the beneficiary of crowdfunding, and believe deeply in supporting each other in times if need, even if we don’t know each other that well.
So, if you can throw a few bucks Pedro’s way, I’m sure he’ll be thrilled. Plus, your good karma helps make the world a little nicer for us all.
