Hurricane Sandy Response

The Power of Hurricane Sandy

While we crafty bloggers are posting our recipes for holiday ornaments and crock pot meals let’s not forget our fellow citizens in the Northeast that are struggling to heat their homes, find enough power to charge their phones and enough gas to get to work.  It looks like cold weather and another storm is heading their way and will intensify their struggle.

Basic daily tasks require nearly herculean effort on their part. How can we help? Large organizations such as the Red Cross and Salvation Army are already working in the Northeast.   I suggest donating to the organization that you think will pour the most help into the area.  There is tremendous need.

Over the next few weeks many different volunteer groups will be heading to the Northeast to help. Say “yes” when you’re asked to help a local group with their volunteer expenses.

Maybe it’s time to start a new family tradition.  While counting our blessings on Thanksgiving we could also say what we’ve done to help others this year.

    The photos from the hurricane are almost too much to look at! We donate on a regular basis to the Red Cross.
    I love your idea of the new Thanksgiving tradition 🙂

  2. We donated to the Red Cross yesterday, like we always do when a hurricane rolls through. If everybody just gives $10, think of the difference it would make. I like your idea of including ways you helped in your regular Thanksgiving traditions. I think that would get people moving a lot more if they had to say it out loud!

  3. I’ve been following this on the news. It’s terrible. I feel for those poor people who have lost their homes 😦
    My brother and his family were “lucky” that they only had water coming in through the windows. I’m thankful for people like you, Edi and Paige for donating.

    A timely post. I have 3 kids on the East Coast. The devastation is staggering. The need is great.

    Yes, I’ve been reading all about it in the news, and I have some of my family living there… so terrible!
