Helping Haiti: Missing Persons Aggregator

With the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti blanketing the news waves, everyday citizens are wondering how they can help.  Governments are sending money and troops; and coders that care are rising just as quickly to direct action.  Although not yet styled, a few of my friends are presently building a site for people to post and find Haitian
missing persons information.  They’re now focusing on scrapers for data on other sites to centralize as much as possible.  It will hopefully be updated every 10-15 minutes.
