Mapping/Communications: , a GPS Emergency Locating system, has been invaluable after the quake, helping volunteers locate many of the calls for help.  With Port au Prince devastated by the earthquake, addresses have been useless.  By employing Twitter or by simply texting 4636, emergencies could be entered into the system and mapped out by a volunteer via the Internet.  Volunteers located all over the World have been able to help coordinate rescue operations on the ground in Haiti, saving many lives.  Volunteers like my Tweep, Rachelle Houde, who has worked tirelessly since shortly after the quake, deserve much praise.

After 10 days in the virtual trenches of Haiti via my Twitter Feed, I have accumulated a wealth of information.  Since logistics have been the main culprit of this "Haiti Debacle", I decided to do something about it and provide some organization of useful data.  I know it will help.  I just hope that enough people who need it, find out about it.

Good Morning Mirela, for people that are worried about their funds making it to haiti I found this:

ShelterboxUSA delivers their goods directly to thoes in need, From what I understand a SBUSA volunteer stays with the box until it gets to its destination.
