Remembering the Haiti earthquake 9 years later.
We've come a long way, but there is still a long road ahead. I want to share our experience working on the Text HAITI relief campaigns, and share what we have learned then and now.
It was a Tuesday afternoon, a little after 5:30pm on January 12, 2010 in Denver. I was heading out of the office when I saw our Operations Manager.
“Hey! What are you still doing here?” I asked.
“I just got a call from Jimmy. I guess there was an earthquake in Haiti. I’m going to spin up a keyword real quick then I’m out of here” he replied.
