Just a reminder that I’m running a DW Occupy Sandy drive. You can Paypal your donations to me at firstname.lastname@example.org until midnight (EST) on Saturday (11/10). I will use our DW collection to buy supplies that Occupy Sandy volunteers will then drive straight to people who need them in the neighborhoods hardest hit by Sandy last week. Occupy Sandy is a grassroots community organization working hard to fill the enormous gaps in aid from the Red Cross and FEMA.
From the Village Voice: “In the eastern reaches of the Rockaways over the weekend, many residents said Occupy Sandy volunteers were the only relief workers they’d seen, the only people to bring them food, clean water, blankets, and information, the only people to ask what they needed and whether they knew of others in even worse shape who required immediate attention.”
Donate if you can and help this organization, who gets an A for citizenship, keep doing what it has been doing. Thank you!
(You can also make donations through their Amazon wish list). As of 9 this morning, DW readers had donated over $550 to the drive and purchased over $500 worth of stuff through the Amazon link I provided. You guys are awesome. Keep it up.
