Boston Marathon Explosion – People Finding Websites

I know many of my friends and clients may have relatives or loved ones that they are concerned about do to the events that happened in Boston, MA today.

I did some research this evening and below are links to websites that been set up to help people connect with each other.

Google Person Finder

Google.org — the search giant’s non-profit organization — launched its website, Google Person Finder. The service “helps people reconnect with friends and loved ones during natural and humanitarian disasters,” said  the company on its site.

The site is unique in that it provides search fields for both people looking for information about someone close to the disaster, and for people who have information about someone close to the disaster.

Red Cross Safe & Well

The American Red Cross activated its Safe & Well Database.

People immediately affected by the disaster can register themselves in the database as safe and well, allowing concerned loved ones a place to search for them.

During Katrina, I went down to the Astrodome and helped people displaced by Katrina get set up on different  people finding site.  It was amazing the results these sites have on connecting people.

My prayers go out all those effective by this terrible event.
