I have received so many emails asking about help for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. I wanted to share a few places I am aware of and hope that you will do the same.
FTM is based in the Pennsylvania, and many in PA, NJ and NY have been affected by this hurricane. I can’t imagine what many of them are going through, some losing everything. As I sat here during the storm, I can say I have never been so scared in my life. The wind literally sounded like a freight train coming through our yard. The rain was relentless. However, my immediate area was spared major damage and destruction. Many people were and are still without power and down trees, but it PALES in comparison to the devstation that is being experienced in some areas.
If you would like to contribute to relief funds and collection drives, I wanted to share two that I know that are in my areas:
