Daniel Prins

Hi there,

We are coordinating the efforts of Artists worldwide.

Please spread the word.


Yvonne DiVita

In the light of such a tragedy, it's comforting to know real sacrifice still exists. We here in the U.S. feel the anguish, albeit in a non-threatening form, with our eyes on the bloggers who, like Angelo, have put aside material things to offer that human connection -- even as a way for the rest of us to pitch in and help. Because of Angelo, and so many others, there is hope amid disaster.

Evelyn Rodriguez

Wow, this is an amazing story. I know how Angelo feels -I cannot get motivated to discuss business in a time like this much either (I'm just going through the motions really). It certainly radically alters one's perspective. I also very much appreciate your own efforts to cover the unfolding story in your blog and to keep attention on the relief effort.

Neville Hobson

Agree fully, Yvonne. And not only you in the US - here Europe-side too. Hope indeed.

Evelyn, so pleased to see you more up and about now. Your posts about your experiences make outstanding reading. I can only imagine what it must have been like, with little success in that imagining.

One thing that has simply amazed me is the role so many blogs have been playing over the last 10 days. Not only selfless commitments such as Angelo's, I'm also thinking primarily about blogs written by people on the ground in the affected countries.

It certainly is one thing to comfortably sit here in Amsterdam (or wherever) writing, it's another to be there writing.

And you do know the difference, Evelyn.

Angelo Fernando

Thanks, all. It strikes me, from those writing to me (non reporters reporting via email) that they may be blogging without realizing it. I (we) are sometimes just facilitators of a kind of information flow that none of us imagined when we started this.
