Since the devastating volcanic eruption in Guatemala, people around the world have been rushing to help donate supplies and money. Facebook has become a community space for those wanting to help by raising funds on the site or by offering assistance, like this woman who offered food for 25 people in Guatemala City or this man who found volunteers to help in the collection center in Escuintla. Now Facebook wants to help, too.
