Rise up Christchurch

I encourage everyone to view and "like" the Facebook page Rise up Christchurch.

This page was launched last week as a way of making people all over the world aware of the tragic earthquake that struck Christchurch on Tuesday 22 February.  It is also a forum for people to express their solidarity.

At the time of writing this post, the Facebook page had over 92,000 followers.

This is a great example of Social Media. From what I have gathered from the TV coverage , it was started by a local newspaper as a means of getting the stories about the earthquake to its readers. It quickly became went global.  This is a non-commercial venture and one to be applauded.

So do you bit and "like" Rise up Christchurch.

Do look at the "before and after" aerial photographic view of Christchurch from ABC News. Thanks to Jock Freemantle of Hulme Supercars Ltd for sending me this link.
