While everyone is out trying the new Google+ Local (https://plus.google.com/local) feature at your favourite restaurant, I thought this story will be a good fit for today.

The World Food Programme (WFP), the food aid arm of the United Nations and the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide, will host a Google+ Hangout from the front lines of the Sahel Crisis today at 3:00 p.m. EDT (12 p.m. PDT) to answer questions and raise awareness.

"We chose Google+ for this event because it offered an easy way to bring our staff in places like the Sahel together with bloggers, journalists and ultimately supporters."

How can technology raise awareness of humanitarian crises around the world? Do a Google+ Hangout. (https://plus.google.com/hangouts)
