Last night my Grandmother, Aunts, Uncles, and cousins were all impacted by Hurricane Sandy. They live in Staten Island, New York and those close to the water have been devastated, including my 80 year old grandmother's house where my mom and all of her brothers and sisters were raised. My grandmother's, aunt's, and uncle's houses have all been reported as under water. They are safe (the most important thing) but lost everything.

I live all the way on the other coast in Seattle and cannot stand to just sit by and do nothing. PLEASE HELP! I know finances are tight for all of us, so please donate whatever you can... $1 donations can add up (don't be shy we struggle too). Help me show them how much they are loved and that there are many people willing to help each other in time of need.

Thanks, Christine

Update: In 1 day, 15 people helped to raise $500 for my family! You are all amazing and I am so grateful to you for helping my family like this.
