Bloggers Without Borders

This doesn’t really have anything to do with Orange County, but because it meshes with the goals of Metroblogging I’ve been given permission to post on the subject anyways. Bloggers Without Borders is a new project started up by Jonas M. Luster, Sean Bonner, and Jim McMurry. The idea for this group has been floating around for a while now, but over the past few days Jonas has been working quadruple-time to get the site up and running. Right now, Bloggers Without Borders is trying to marshal the resources of the internet to help those affected by the tsunami in Southeast Asia.

The mission of Bloggers Without Borders is to raise awareness for charities and charitable events around the world; to use the tools and exposure of modern citizen journalism as a means to lend a hand in the solicitation of donations and outbound information management.

Blogging has become a huge phenomenon, but we are only just starting to figure out how to wield its power to suit our own ends. Bloggers Without Borders is one attempt to use that power to improve the world, if anybody can build a coalition of bloggers to help those most in need, it is this group. These are people I know and respect, and I have complete faith that they can make this happen.

I urge you to go donate or volunteer to their efforts if you can. The amount doesn’t matter, every bit helps. And if you can’t afford to donate, at least spread the word. It would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
