Sandy Relief Fundraiser Ends; Greenpointers raised over $10,000!

Greenpointers, as a community we have raised over $10,000 for Sandy Relief Efforts! We raised $9400 for New York Cares and $900 for Greenpoint Soup Kitchen! Great job!

And the fundraising isn’t over! On Wednesday (11/14) we are hosting a Comedy Benefit at Saint Vitus to raise money for AdoptNY.

Then on Sunday (11/18) we are hosting a Soup Bowl Fundraiser at EAT, a fun event we were planning even before Hurricane Sandy arrived for Greenpoint Soup Kitchen.

On Friday, I received a call from Omaha, Nebraska. Chris from paypal alerted me that our account was “limited” verging on “restricted” because it is against policy to sell raffle tickets via paypal as it can be in violation of gambling laws! (Don’t freak out!)

All mention of raffle was removed and we continued to fundraise. After uploading a million legal documents and explaining what we were doing, paypal resolved the matter.

That being said, because I cannot say anymore…

If you receive an email from me, it’s because you are randomly awesome! (Randomly awesome people will NOT be announced on the website.)

Thanks to everyone who donated and may the laws of awesomeness be with you!

About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!
