After the media spotlight fades on the residents impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, it is important for individuals, communities and relief organizations to share their stories of these life-changing events. The hurricane aftermath is about reflection, healing, determination and rebuilding lives and property for the future. The stories that emanate from these challenging times need to be told – and shared.
MEI is offering a subscription to the TruEdit content platform for nonprofit associations and educational institutions in the hurricane-impacted areas to tell the stories of the residents and communities during the rebuilding process. If a resident not affiliated with an organization is interested, please contact MEI as well.
TruEdit is our cloud-based content platform for individuals and groups to collaborate and publish their stories, images and illustrations on the web or in print to a nation and world that will need to remain informed. We believe that sharing these stories and experiences will help continue to shine a light on the long-term needs of the impacted communities. TruEdit will support the collective voice of these communities and will be used to inform relief organizations that will continue to work in these communities for as long as they are needed.
Whether an organization is requesting its members to blog about the hurricane on a website, a photographer posting an image as part of a collective series on the web or in print, an author that will write about the rebuilding experience, or other stories that need to shared, TruEdit is available as a common platform to create and manage the storytelling process.
“A true community is not just about being geographically close to someone or part of the same social web network. It’s about feeling connected and responsible for what happens. Humanity is our ultimate community, and everyone plays a crucial role.” – Yehuda Berg
