If you live here like I do, you LOVE this city and the people in it.. Even if you don't live here I know so many of you love this city like your own and are looking for ways to help. After the storm I was at a loss for how to get involved so I compiled a list of helpful links on how to help New York and New Jersey residents who have lost so much after Sandy.
If you live in New York:
This is an amazing site where you can sign up to help out in Parks, Art Centers, Food Banks and Shelters
Check out the Brooklyn Kitchen site
Check out the Surfrider Foundation for rides to coastal areas and Waves for Water
Stay in the know:
Help in the LES (where they are running low on food and general supplies but DO NOT need clothes other than coats)
Do you live outside the Tristate area and still want to help?
It is so so easy! The easiest way is to text the RED CROSS a $10 donation by Texting REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10
Other ways are by visiting
or of course the RED CROSS
For all Animal Lovers like myself, please visit the Mayors Alliance for NYC's Animals
I'll be collecting food and pet supplies along with the aid of Brooklyn Bark and FIDO for families affected by the storm so they do not need to give up their sweet friends in times of need. You can drop off supplies at the events below or contact me and Ill pick up supplies in the Downtown Brooklyn/Fort Greene/DUMBO areas.
