Our thoughts and hearts are with everyone affected by the recent attacks overseas, and we’re sending love to those in Beirut, Baghdad and Paris. Now, more than ever, it is crucial to find the good in others and ourselves, and these days, support and outreach often happen online. Here’s how you can use social media to make an impact:
- Parisians are tweeting the hashtag, #PorteOuverte which means “open door” to give safe haven and offer temporary homes to those in need. US citizens are also offering up their homes to stranded French tourists with the hashtag #strandedinUS.
- Facebook’s Safety Check allows users to let friends and family know their status in the wake of the event.
- People are using the hashtags #rechercheParis (search Paris) and #rechercheBataclan (search Bataclan) to find friends and family members.
- #PrayForWorld is being used to show support for all victims of the attacks.
