Help Hurricane Sandy Victims

Support the many victims of Hurricane Sandy by donating to the Red Cross. The devastation is incredible. I've spent most of my life in the NYC-metro area and I can't believe the pictures I'm seeing.

Here's what the Red Cross says on their website:

Hundreds of thousands of evacuees have already rushed to emergency shelters with their loved ones, and your support is desperately needed to help us keep as many people safe from the storm as possible. Please make your tax-deductible gift to the American Red Cross right now.

Hurricane Sandy has already wrought extensive damage in vulnerable communities along the coast, including severe flooding, power failures and wind damage. There’s no telling what kind of devastation communities will face in the storm’s aftermath, which means we must be ready for the worst.

How much help we can provide in the coming days will be determined in part by your generosity right now. As the storm’s effects become more widespread, more people will need our help. We’ve got to be there for every one of them.

With your help, the Red Cross has already:
Opened shelters in 7 states, deploying more than 1,000 Red Cross workers to support relief efforts
Mobilized nearly 170 Emergency Response Vehicles to move at a moment’s notice
Secured more than 230,000 shelf-stable meals
Readied thousands of supplies such as cots, comfort kits and clean up kits
