Colombia: Twitter Solidarity with Victims of Rainy Season

Colombian Twitter users have joined to support the victims of this year's heavy rainy season, which has affected at least 1.5 million people. Twitteratón [es] started on December 8 as an event in Medellín [es] to collect donations for the victims, prompting similar events in other cities like Bogotá (12/ 11), Barranquilla [es] (12/11), Pasto [es] (12/12), and Cali [es] (12/19 [es]). A virtual auction [es] of works by illustrators, photographers, and artists is also on the works.
