On December 10, online marketing company fishbat responds to a recent article by CNN concerning different ways people have used social media to help out those in need.

According to an article published by CNN, there are over 700 Facebook groups with the words “Hurricane Sandy” in the title. Many of these pages are dedicated to finding clothes, shelter and food for those affected by the storm. “One page, ‘Hurricane Sandy Acts of Kindness,’ lists posts from those looking to help victims and those looking to highlight acts of kindness toward the storm's victims,” the article reports.

The article states that Twitter has also been a medium for helping Sandy victims. “Where Twitter is often a vehicle for publicity, many people and businesses turned the tables, tweeting offers of help, including free legal advice, clothing drives and pet and child care,” the article stated.

Clay Darrohn, CEO of the online marketing company fishbat, responds to the article. “I’m not surprised by the amount of people reaching out through social media to find help after this devastating storm,” Darrohn said.

He went on to add that he had first-hand experience in using social media to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. “Last week fishbat hosted a benefit concert called Sand-Aid, the profits from which went towards Sandy victims. The concert was a success, largely due to our Facebook page, which helped get the word out on the concert.”
