The great folks over at George Washington are doing lots of stuff with both
MapGive and directly with groups such as USAID and with the American Red
Cross. We, Red Cross, are always looking to engage more students and
classes in humanitarian mapping. I would be happy to share our experience
with OpenStreetMap and HOT during the Typhoon Haiyan and Guinea Ebola
outbreak activations.

Please feel free to contact me offlist to discuss further.
