Silicon Valley jets for Haiti...

Silicon Valley has a huge jet fleet...why not use it for Haiti relief?
Written by Tom Foremski, Contributor

I recently wrote about using Silicon Valley's jets, both corporate and individual, for Haiti relief. Even if just each jet made one trip, it would be an incredible air lift.

Let's Use Silicon Valley's Jet Fleet To Rush Aid To Haiti:

I don't have a jet but I know plenty of companies and people that do.

For example, Google has lots of jets. The New York Times wrote:

The company had just added a Boeing 757 to a fleet that already included a refurbished Boeing 767 and two Gulfstream V's. All four planes had landing rights at Moffett Field, the NASA operated airfield that is a stone's throw from the Google campus.

Why "Do no evil" when you can do some good?

I set up a Facebook group - (you dont have to live in Silicon Valley to join). I've no idea if it will jolt a company or two to donate a flight but it might. Please join if you agree.

I'll post updates here and on Twitter(@tomforemski).
