Maps help save lives. Thousands of mappers across the globe create map data for emergencies, where it never existed before, through the amazing Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT).

Now HOT is asking for help with your donation to support its critical work.

We are helping to accelerate the fundraising: Mapbox will match the first $10,000 in donations. We are proud to support HOT with this funding drive and especially with our team’s continuing time commitment to HOT activations, with coordination, imagery, and mapping. Read about the recent responses to the Afghanistan Earthquake and Hurricane Patricia, and the largest HOT response to date in Nepal.

Let everyone know they should donate and spread the word with hashtag #mapthedifference.
