Never underestimate the power of people in large groups they say, and I cannot agree more. Large groups can make a difference, and the masses be they right or wrong can be a winning force if pointed into the right direction. You can decide if you want to be part of one of these large groups united for a good cause.
Bloggers are trying to make a difference and bloggers in today’s world mean a lot, maybe not as much as TV or written media yet, but their voice is getting heard more and more. So, the BlogCatalog community of bloggers created a project called Bloggers Unite with the intention to show the whole world how powerful the mankind can be when united in the name of a good cause. Unleash the power of blogging! This time the blogosphere’s task is to help the refugees.
The question is what can you do? How can you contribute and how can you help the refugees?
You’ll have to use your most powerful weapon – information! And this is the core contribution you are able to make, Bloggers Unite hope that by advancing the power of blogs we can quickly and effectively raise the necessary awareness and aid about critical social causes. You can become that link that will carry the information to every remote area of the earth and help refugees by doing what you can best. You can help find the missing family members and thanks to you maybe families will reunite. Bloggers Unite is promoting the the Refugees United – a non-profit organization that helps refugees relocate family and friends through the use of the internet. It provides refugees with an anonymous forum to reconnect with missing family, the Refugees United search engine is the first of it’s kind, all refugees are welcome, regardless of conflict, place or time, no official papers need to be filled in and the service is of course free of charge.
You can join the group to find out more ways of how you can contribute or you can start being part of it right now by simply putting a badge on your site, you can find them here. Hope we can do at least something for the people who had to leave their homes and need help.
