We encourage you to spread the word about this tool: Anyone in or outside of Haiti can use this tool via the web or on a mobile phone to make reports with voice, text or video; the reports will then be mapped and sources verified.  Ushahidi are hoping this adapted version of the tool, that's been used successfully in the recent Kenyan election crisis and the DRC war crisis, to help shepard people donation to relief efforts and mapping services to people urgently in need.
