Time to Help . . .

I landed in NYC last night and was lucky to come back to an unchanged home/neighborhood post-hurricane. But so many around the city and the Tri-state area have not been so lucky. 
So now is the time to help! 

Here are five ways you can donate/volunteer to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy: 

American Red Cross
Providing shelter, clothes, food, supplies, and blood as needed.

Text: The word REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10
