Greenpointers, GROUP HUG!
Until now, I never understood how important this website could be in bringing the entire community together to help out fellow New Yorker during a time of such need! Be proud.
It was difficult to chose a charity and I never expected we would raise so much in such a short amount of time. I can literally sit and watch the donations coming in, minute by minute. The generosity is unbelievable!
With over a week to go, I am adding an additional option.
When you make your donation, you can chose your funds to benefit either New York Cares, or our local Greenpoint Soup Kitchen, who is working so hard, not only to feed hungry Greenpointers, but to prepare meals for those in shelter displaced by Hurricane Sandy in Brooklyn.
As I write this, the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen is making over 400 sandwiches for elderly Brooklynites who are taking shelter at the armory. Their work is tireless and directly benefits hungry New Yorkers during this difficult time.
Both options enter you to win the same awesome prizes!
