A Social media campaign has just surpassed its goal of $2 million (now sitting at $2.3 million) for the famine in Somalia. The campaign launched by social media star Jerome Jarre has received wide support since he tweeted Turkish Airlines a video, asking them to provide a plane for humanitarian aid.
?MAINSTREAM MEDIA WON’T TALK ABOUT IT !!!

Turkish Airlines responded the next day with a tweet saying “We love Somalia. We got the call for this meaningful flight.”

Since then the campaign has received support from Hollywood actor Ben Stiller, a $25,000 donation from Calvin Harris and a number of other celebrities have joined in on the action by creating videos for the campaign. Turkish Airlines has agreed that they can fill a plane with 60 tons of food and aid, and have also agreed to send food on commercial flights until the famine is over.
There has been very little media coverage of this and people are in desperate need of help, you can get involved by watching the video below and shooting a similar one and nominating others to do the same with the hashtag #TurkishAirlinesHelpSomalia.
