About Our Volunteers

It has been 100 days since the Haiti quake that shook the world.  For many it seems a lifetime. For me it seems like just yesterday. As we make our official debut in the public eye, I would like to take a moment to tell you about the extraordinary efforts of a few very special people who came together during a time of great need to serve others around the world.   There are so many volunteers helping Haiti in countries around the world every day.    Each has a story about why now, why Haiti, why Chile, why Indonesia and why do so many feel the need to help.  I want to take a moment to recognize some very special people who provided the initial foundation for our digital volunteer team.  In 2010, it began in Twitter, and so in light of that, I would like to share with you using their twitter names, the @Twitter volunteers who made significant contribution to laying the foundations of Humanity Road, Inc.

Each of these volunteers has put in tremendous hours of their personal effort and resources to help others.  They have been critical in helping to establish a process that will be repeatable in the future to help others.  They have all been a personal inspiration to me in helping provide communications to the general public during times of great need.  I hope you will join me in thanking them for their contribution.  Because of our volunteers, we are here to stay and will continue our efforts to help the world, and your neighborhood, when you need us most.

With my deepest gratitude and respect,

Christine Thompson
