Tsunami Appeal from The Library of Life and the IFRC

This request comes from Henry Hardy of London:

The Library of Life, an UK based website (www.libraryoflife.org) whose aim is to compile the life stories of millions of people around the world, thereby creating the world’s first universal record of life that lasts forever. The website raises funds for the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and in this time of need they have asked us to create a living memorial to all the victims of this tragedy. This will be done through photographs, text, film, sound and scanned documents on the site.

The Library of Life, in association with the IFRC, is inviting all those whose lives have been affected by the tragedy to create a memorial to commemorate their loved ones, or post their own experiences as a record for all future generations. We have also set up an online ‘Tsunami Book of Condolence’, which we are inviting the public to sign and express their feelings on this terrible disaster.

In order for this great humanitarian project to be successful it is essential that we have as much information and reach as many people as possible. We therefore, kindly request that you give us your assistance by contributing to the Library of Life through posting your experiences and opinions directly on our site

I have just visited the site and I think it is a great idea, I had a play around and think that it could be the next thing, is it owned by Google?

I have gone onto the site and looked around. Many of the records have pictures from the region and some of the personal stories are tragic. I have signed the book of condolence and I will definately come back to create my own record.
