Sandy relief

This list ambitions to gather in one single place both the relief resources and the volunteering opportunities for those affected by 'frankenstorm' Sandy on the East coast.
The Sandy relief list aims to make it easy for every single one of us to help those affected.

As the situation is very fluid and new initiatives arise constantly, we invite you to contribute with your input too.

Let's just try to avoid duplicates and make sure we keep it fresh!


Restaurants Unite for Sandy Help

An event & organization Called R.U.S.H, Restaurants Unite for Sandy Help, set up by Ty Sulivan.

"We are coming together as a community to help raise money for victims of Sandy by doing a fundraiser on November 18th at Sunnyside Center Services from 4pm until 8pm.

Through R.U.S.H we are asking our social media friends & heavy hitters to support this cause by taking the “cover banner” from my or your friends Facebook page and using it as yours until November 18th, the day of the event. Also, please pass along the picture of the poster. Now, we will have a link for people to donate complete soon and I will ask you to PLEASE support the cause by Tweeting it out as much as you can to some of the heaviest hitters in Social Media. Almost a Tweetathon style blast but at your leisure over the couple of days after you get the link.

I have high expectations for this. If you know me, I reach my goals. I want to raise $50,000 in relief funds! I’ll be frank: I have been there for every charity that has come my way, I now ask for your help as my community struggles to clean up, survive and rebuild."
