If therefore there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.
Philippians 2:1-2, NASB
world wide momentum
The reach of social networking is inestimable. The digital revolution has changed disaster recovery efforts forever. Social networks proved critical in the minutes and hours following the devastating earthquake in Haiti in January 2010. Social networking became lifelines for people trying to get information about loved ones as traditional communication channels failed.
For the first time in the history of a global tragedy, nearly $32 million was donated to the Red Cross using mobile phone texts. Within hours of the May 2010 Nashville flood, volunteers mobilized and donations poured in, in large part due to the speed and agility of social networks.
