The bushfires in Victoria in the last few days have been horrific, leaving thousands of people homeless. I was inspired by something I saw during the Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans, where a site was set up to pair up the homeless with people willing to offer temporary accommodation.
This proved to be very successful and I suggested we do this at Sputnik Agency where I work. The idea was very well received and we got together a small team, and started building the site. Please head to Bushfire Housing and sign up if you have a place to offer, or if you know of anybody who needs temporary accommodation. Any feedback is also welcome on the functionality of the sites or bugs you may find!
Thanks again! Lets help out however we can.
