    Hey, everyone, can I ask anyone who still has some energy to help out?

    #MEAction is collecting press coverage about #MillionsMissing. Especially the local stuff is important.

    It would involve finding link, author, news outlet, country, and putting that into a Google spreadsheet. I just did four and it took me 7 or 8 min.

    If you have some energy, please PM me. It would mean a lot. The people who planned the protests are, as you can well imagine, in a deep hole and still digging.

    Another great service would be to post your favorite FEW images from your city protest or country of origin. It's absolutely amazing how much tweeting and retweeting we received!

    Thank you for everything you do @JaimeS! Sorry, stupid question, where should we post them, on our official MillionsMissing social media channels (or here)? Should we tag the #MEAction Network or alert them somehow?

    Good question! I was initially putting the giant email together highlighting the protests from all around the world and wanted people to post them here so I could use them. However, if you want to put them up so that everyone can see them, there are a few ways:

    1) Post them to Twitter tagged #MillionsMissing and/or #CanyouseeMEnow -- it can be your 'official' twitter, but those tags are what people are using to find images.
    2) If you were a coordinator, you should have received that link to smugmug that allows ppl to upload photos by protest region, and then by city. Bless you if you do; combing through twitter hunting them down is tough. If you run into issues with smugmug feel free to PM me and I am happy to help out.

    Smugmug also allows you to attribute photographs to the photographer or make additional commentary, like "Dr. So-and-so's speech" as a comment.
