Post-Sandy Help

Parts of the East Coast are ravaged. Temperatures will drop to 30 degrees this weekend, while millions still have no heat or electricity. Add the frustration of finding gasoline and you have limited options in mitigating these struggles.

We in the greater NYC and East Coast areas are a fast paced, resilient bunch. But we do need your help.

Ways YOU Can Help:

  1. Watch the telethon tonight and donate.
  2. Keep searching for news stories to stay aware, even after common reporting dies down.
  3. Donate blood.
  4. Donate food or money to relief efforts.
  5. Offer prayers for those in need and your own prayers of gratitude.

 

Ideas and reflection:

There are calls to action in the Blogshere. Alli creates a compelling case for WHY to donate. Steph provides additional ideas for donations as well as where to donate in NJ. And if you’d like to know more about what is going in in terms of relief efforts, this Rock Center video is a good start.

 

Thank you for all your help. We need it.
