Helping Hands - Helping Those Affected by Hurricane Sandy

As I sit writing this in my comfy home, listening to the tv and my boys playing, I can not express how this is all a blessing. You see, as many of you already know, I'm a New Yorker and this week Hurricane Sandy completely took over our North Eastern Coast.

Many parts of NYC was affected, from the lower part of Manhattan to the inland and coastal areas of the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, and Staten Island. Not to mention the complete devastation of the Jersey Shoreline.

People across these areas have no power and no water. Even worse, some have lost their homes and even lost ones. Knowing people personally, who have been heavily affected by this natural disaster, makes my heart ache, wishing resources were there to help them get their lives back together as soon as possible.
