World for Haiti

You may have already seen this video, but it's worth watching again. And again.
Mashable quoted an answer given by Quincy Jones regarding the decision to distribute the video through YouTube “… with the stroke of a key on your keyboard or cell phone, images and messages can be transferred all around the world to hundreds of millions of people in seconds. That’s an enormous amount of power. How can you not try and harness that resource to help people in need?”

That, my friends, is Social Media at it's finest.



What an enormous amount of talent they have gathered together for a great cause. (And how nice it is to see Michael in his semi-normal days.)

All proceeds from sales of the song on iTunes will go to Haiti relief.

Very Good. I like how they changed it up and let everyone do it in their own style.

Thanks for sharing the video. That was incredible.

It was great to meet you today! I'm kind of curious about your life as a virtual assistant. Didn't quite have enough time to discuss that during the speed dating!

Hey, did you see us on Sue's blog? We kind of look drunk. If that's not a good Mormon Mommy time, I don't know what is. We must do lunch sometime.
