Outlook, BBC World Service Facebook Page.

There are hundreds of stories of courageous individuals raising money online.  Dr. Evangeline Cua, a surgeon from the city of Iloilo, wrote a short, urgent message on her social networks, asking them simple to donate money to help send out a medical team. Within 24 hours, all because of social shares, she had received more than £30,000 in private donations, which was enough to dispatch a team of nine as well as medicine!
