Fellow instagrammers I want to tell you a story about yesterday.
It started with an idea from @sofytomz and Global Family the evening after the earthquake in México. At 10am the next morning we were three people and had a single pavilion with a table ready to collect donations. The first car arrived almost an hour later and it was questionable if we could fill the helicopter that Sofia organized just over night. Anyway after a while more and more people came to donate medicine, food, water, tools, and so on. Some of them even stayed to help with marking and organizing the things.
I soon had to leave for an appointment but when I came back after no more than one hour I literally had goosebumps. All of a sudden there were around 50-60 people helping and a big line of cars waiting to unload their donations. Friends, Parents, students, employees of @tecdemonterrey, they all helped together to prepare this unbelievable amount of donations for the way to the affected areas. In the beginning there was no structure, no guideline but for every problem that occurred someone had a solution. I've rarely seen such a productive environment and it was created simply by communicating and working together.
Around 3pm a helicopter full of medical supplies started at Querétaro airport.
At some point we had no space left for all the stuff we gathered so we started bringing it to the warehouse of the Tec. At this point we had cars, transporters, europallets, and so on and so forth. By the end of the day I believe around 200 (!) people helped. 🙆🏼♂️ #fuerzaméxico
I do not only want to thank everybody for helping but also for restoring my faith in humanity. Sad that it takes a catastrophe to reach this level of altruism.
