Microsoft has launched a new Disaster Relief application this week called HelpBridge, which has been created to simplify the process of notifying loved ones by simultaneously sending an e-mail and SMS to the communities you select & posting a message to your Facebook wall. Watch the video by Microsoft after the jump to learn more about the HelpBridge project and see it in action.
“When a disaster strikes, those not immediately impacted often want to help. HelpBridge makes that easy by connecting you with some of the world’s leading disaster relief organizations and by providing multiple ways to help – text-to-give donations, larger contributions via PayPal, and goods donations.”
If you’d prefer to give your time rather than money, HelpBridge will also show you how you can volunteer in support of disaster relief efforts near where you live and nationwide. For more information on the new HelpBridge jump over to the Microsoft website for details.
