Social media connects bushfire displaced with temporary accommodation

16 February 2009

An Australian agency has donated a fantastic resource for the Victorian victims of the bushfires that have torn through the state in the past couple of weeks.

The website, BushfireHousing.org, is designed to connect victims looking for accommodation with kind-hearted souls offering space to stay. Needless to say, the resource has set up a Twitter feed and an active Facebook group to help spread the word. Social media is most effective when connecting real people to other real people and this is a fantastic initiative.
