This is a perfect example of crowdsourcing in an emergency-providing a resource that helps the response. Emergency managers who are not monitoring social media channels miss so much critical and helpful information.
FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate says, "The public isn't a liability during a disaster, they're a resource." The people in Queensland who coordinated this effort are certainly an asset during this emergency response effort.


Its an sad story of all the tragedies that go on in the world..people are just being sought out by bad weather every where..

David, thanks so much for this. I didn't tell you the story of the cookie photo. A woman in Sydney emailed us to say she wanted to do something for Baked Relief, but lived in Sydney. So she made over 100 of these cookies (shaped as a map of Australia, with the heart over Queensland), sold them for $3.50 each and donated the $. We just loved that story and HAD to use the photo.
