Hurricane Sandy Relief Charities
Aside from the big names, I’ve started gathering some charities that have either already been around or ones that friends have started. For those who are unable to donate money… please donate your time. Volunteer to help clean, make meals, donate clothing, etc. Any help is still help in some way and greatly appreciated.
As you sit in your warm home tonight, think about those who are still without heat, hot water, power, food, clean water, and how it will be dropping into the 30s tonight.
If anyone knows of any more charities please feel free to reblog and add! Also please be careful donating to random charities… there is news of scams happening! Via ABC.com here are some tips to research your charity before donating!
