More than 120 Athenian taxi drivers took part in a massive initiative organized by the Greek start up Taxibeat to gather clothes and other items for needy refugees in the Greek capital.
The numbers were staggering. Taxibeat’s call to action on Facebook was shared almost 15,000 times and on the day of the campaign, more than 2,500 Taxibeat users clicked a button on their smart phones to call a Taxibeat driver to come to their home to pick up items they wanted to donate. The items gathered were enough to fill almost a dozen giant containers. —Athenians Respond En Masse to Refugee Crisis via Greek Start Up Taxibeat’s Initiative - The Pappas Post
