A Statement from Rising Above the Waves: Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund
We co-exist in a community of friends that is truly more like a family. As such, we simply cannot stand by knowing that some of our own family had the ground literally washed away from under their feet. On October 29th, 2012, Hurricane Sandy made landfall in the Northeast and caused irreparable damage to the beautiful town of Long Beach, NY. With it, Sandy took some of our best friends’ homes, their belongings and their basic survival supplies. What it didn’t take, though, was their spirit. Please help us in this effort to get our loved ones back on their feet during this time when they need our help and support now more than ever. This is what family is for. We are currently collecting funds that will be used to help our friends in need get the things they need in this trying time. Please visit our fundraising page here, to donate.
Your donation will be used to help those in need purchase even the most basic of necessities that we take for granted. Some items include: Winter clothes, jackets, hooded sweatshirts, socks, underwear, hats, scarves, gloves, shoes, tooth brushes, tooth paste, shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant, razors, shaving cream, bottled water & non-perishable food items, blankets, sheets and pillows, batteries, flashlights, furniture, music equipment, instruments, housing decor, etc. For more information or if you have any questions please send an email to Risingabovethewaves@gmail.com
