#Quakebook is a crowd sourced book that started with a single call for help on Twitter seeking contributors to create a book to help raise funds for Red Cross Japan to help the victims of the Earthquake that struck Japan at 2:46 on March 11th. This project was led by @OurManInAbiko on Twitter and within just two weeks of the earthquake he has amassed 30,000 words. It is a compilation of pictures and stories of those effected by the earthquake. It helps them to share their stories but all proceeds will help support the efforts of Red Cross Japan who have been on the ground helping those effected since day one. The response for #Quakebook has been nothing short of sensational. Word of this effort has spread quickly and was picked up and tweeted by Twitter and Yoko Ono.
There are a lot of ways you help the efforts on the ground in Japan and this seems like a pretty good one. Quakebook is currently being reviewed by it's editors and will be on sale soon. You can check HERE for the latest status. If you have skills that can help with #quakebook succeeding you can volunteer HERE.
Please help promote the efforts of this noble cause; buy the book, promote it, tweet about it, review it, blog about it, link to it, give it as a gift.
