There have been so many uses and developments when it comes to crowdsourcing and apps—some helpful, others trivial—but I’m happy for the opportunity to bring attention to one app that is sure to save lives, ease hearts or, at the very least, bring closure. This app is brought to you by the Haiti Earthquake Support Center.

Created by The Extraordinaires, the Haiti Earthquake Support Center allows you to upload photos of missing persons, and with incredible crowdsourcing resources, hopefully find him or her. For more details, and perhaps to even help, I suggest you visit their site. Stats for Missing Person Apps Trending: Older & Chilly
