Repair Millenium Park

Jeremiah Owyang pointed to a sad story on Twitter this morning. A flashmob organized on Facebook for a waterfight at Millenium Park in Leeds, UK. The resulting storm of 350 people completely trashed the park, and the reputation of social media enthusiasts.

There’s now a Facebook group to organize volunteers to help Repair Millenium Park and, a fund where you can donate a couple of coins to help pay for the damage. If you believe in the power of networked communities, add a dollar to help turn this story around.
