What's this you ask? Is it a fun art piece? NOPE. Is it an alien pod? NOPE. It is hotel sized shampoos getting a second life to help those in need. #SoapforHopeYYC #DisasterAid #volunteerAirdrie

#DisasterAidCoordinationApp
Welcome to C’8 – Coordinate, the purely altruistic disaster aid coordination software app that will be free and available to all that I’ve been working on since hurricane Sandy in 2012 and I think will be a game-changer.

The need is extraordinary in the disaster response, volunteerism, charitable aid and donations world for a tool that’s efficient, effective, transparent, free and available to all including disaster victims and communities.

In addition to coordinating needs and recovery efforts, C’8 will also facilitate direct, specific, immediate, zero overhead, 100% transparent (as they all should be) aid donations, provide a platform to report suspected abuses, and much more in a game-changing, force-multiplying way.

C’8 will be an open source tool of, by, and for the people and as such, we need and invite your support and participation in its creation and implementation. Thank you!! We invite code writers to donate open source code to the working demo version as well as the finished product. We will soon open a crowdfunding campaign to begin to accept donations which will be used to proportionately compensate all that contributed to the code writing.

We also invite everyone to send us your own videos of #withC8, what would you do, or how would you be or have been more empowered to deal with disaster recovery? Thanks again!

A magnitude 6.4 earthquake just struck eastern #Taiwan, near the city of #Hualien, where the Jing Si Abode, Tzu Chi’s global headquarters, is based. A number of buildings in the city collapsed, including a historic hotel, while dramatic shaking was felt in many parts of the country. The earthquake activity began 48 hours ago, from February 4 to 5, a total of 71 earthquakes were recorded off the coast of Hualien. The quake today was the strongest so far. The nuns and residents at the Jing Si Abode have already set up a #DisasterRelief command center, and are preparing hot tea that will shortly be distributed in safe areas, as rescue efforts are underway. Let’s pray for the safety of everyone in the affected areas, as aftershocks continue. Please #JoinHands with #TzuChiRelief to offer #DisasterAid after tragedy strikes around the world. tzuchi.us/donate/TaiwanQuake

We conducted assessment of the areas impacted by the massive #mudslide in #Montecito, #California, and are holding ongoing #DisasterAid distributions of #CashCards and supplies for those impacted at the #SantaBarbara Local Assistance Center. The powerful flow of water and debris carried away vehicles, closed highways, damaged homes, and left an already struggling community at a total loss as they were only just beginning to recover from the #SoCalWildfires. Let’s all keep these individuals in our hearts, and #JoinHands with #TzuChiRelief. #LoveSaves #MontecitoMudslide tzuchi.us/donate/JoinHands

At the Biliqo-Bulesa Community Conservancy in Kenya, Abdi and his crew of rangers protect elephants and other wildlife from poachers. In the past, it has been hard to get access to clean drinking water, but this situation is changing with solar-powered energy efficient desalination technology, abolishing the need to search hours away for bottled water. Read more about Abdi, the conservancy, and the changing state of water technology in the link in our bio. 📷 and article by Rachel Nuwer

Hear from Ruth Muller, whose daughter and mother are currently living in #Mexico. Ruth works at a Tzu Chi Clinic in California, and was moved to tears upon learning that her family received #TzuChiRelief at our most recent #DisasterAid distribution for those impacted by the #MexicoEarthquake. We are sincerely touched and grateful to be able to make a difference for all those who are struggling - please, #JoinHands with us so that we may be able to provide our support wherever there are those in need. tzuchi.us/donate/JoinHands #LoveSaves

“My wife smiled for the first time in 3 days.”

This is why we do what we do. During a disaster sometimes all you need is a gesture of human goodwill - whether that’s someone lending a hand 🤚 or a stranger over the internet sending money 💵.

Sempo is a platform that gets cash directly into the hands of individuals affected by disasters, globally 🌏.

As part of our ongoing #CAWildfire recovery efforts, #TzuChiRelief volunteers have distributed emergency #DisasterAid to 37 families impacted by the #LilacFire. The blaze had ravaged the community of Rancho Monserate Country Club, a mobile home park in #Fallbrook, #CA. Volunteers provided financial assistance, emotional support, and other necessities to help them regain their footing amid this difficult time. #LoveSaves, so let’s all #JoinHands to help those in need: tzuchi.us/donate/JoinHands #SoCal #SouthernCalifornia #wildfire #helpinghands #charity #relief #dogood #give #volunteer #volunteerism #bethechange #CaliforniaStrong

We take pride in treating even the littlest of patients. Throughout our #earthquake relief mission in #Mexico, we’ve held a total of ten #DisasterAid distributions and #MedicalOutreach events, serving over 10,800 families, and provided more than 5,000 #medical services. Our most recent and final emergency #MexicoEarthquake distribution event took place in the #Coyoacán district of #MexicoCity, providing vital medical services and consultations, which included #dental care and #ChineseMedicine for those who’ve continued to suffer without proper care since the disaster.

January 13th, 2018 marked our final #MexicoEarthquake relief distribution and #MedicalOutreach event in #Coyoacán, a district of #MexicoCity, the distribution having been organized from beginning to end entirely by devoted local volunteers. With our next phase of #DisasterAid on the horizon, we hope that we have given the people of Mexico renewed positivity for the future, and sown the seeds for further #HumanitarianAid to take root across the country. #JoinHands with #TzuChiRelief: tzuchi.us/donate/JoinHands #LoveSaves #HumanitarianAid #RipplesofLove #LoveSaves #communidad #givingback #iglesia #weareallinthistogether #helphumanity #socialgood #give #charity #terremoto #disasterrelief #dogood #inspire #empower #photooftheday

Hundreds of people in the #Coyoacán district of #MexicoCity were left homeless since the #MexicoEarthquake and are now living in tents. Our #DisasterAid distribution and #MedicalOutreach for these families is taking place right now. We are grateful that we can help relieve their suffering by offering #CashCard financial aid and #FreeMedical care. #JoinHands with #TzuChiRelief by making monthly donations so that we can always respond swiftly after disaster strikes and inflicts great hardship: tzuchi.us/donate/JoinHands! #LoveSaves #RipplesOfLove #HumanitarianAid

It’s a chilly morning in the #Coyoacán district of #MexicoCity, as the 450 families who will receive our #MexicoEarthquake #DisasterAid are arriving at the Iglesia del Patrocinio de San José, where today’s distribution and #MedicalOutreach is taking place. On such a cold day, it’s hard to imagine that these families, with children and the elderly, have been living in tents since the earthquake last September, enduring prolonged hardship. Please #JoinHands with #TzuChiRelief, so that together, we can bring relief to people in tough situations such as this. Let’s always be at the ready to help those suffering after disasters, letting them know that they truly are not alone because we care: tzuchi.us/donate/JoinHands. #HumanitarianAid #RipplesofLove #LoveSaves
