join me : in contributing to sandy relief efforts

Posted: November 1st, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: doing good, the earth | 2 Comments »

As I write this, I am submitting small donations to the following two organizations.

There are many ways to contribute to the effort, but even just a small donation can really help.
Please join me and encourage your friends to donate too!

MASBIA – Their soup kitchen network is trying to feed 600 seniors who were just relocated to the Park Slope Armory (pictured above in preparation on Tuesday). The gov’t-issued ration packs are very high in sodium (a health issue for most of these people), not to mention squeezed from gel packs. Masbia is providing nutritious, low-sodium meals for all of the folks there. Just $6 pays for one meal.

AMERICAN RED CROSS – They are helping thousands of people. Since Saturday, the Red Cross has provided more than 23,000 overnight shelter stays. Over 2,300 Red Cross disaster workers have served more than 100,800 meals and they’ve activated nearly 200 emergency response vehicles going into communities to distribute food and water. $10 minimum donation online.

P.S. Watch this riveting time lapse video shot from the 51st floor of the NY Times building throughout the entire hurricane, starting on Sunday, ending Wednesday.

    When I look at the photos and video from Long Beach Island, I want to cry. How could one not want to help?
