Socks For Sandy…A Call To Action (Please Share and Help)

Last week, the East Coast was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.  I’m not sure how it made you feel, but I felt helpless.  I was up in the middle of the night for several nights trying to figure out how I could help.  I would love to make a large monetary donation…I’m sure everyone wishes they could.  So, if you can’t make a monetary donation, what can you do…what can those of us that are on a budget do to help? 


 



We can do what we mothers do best…something small that makes a big impact. 



We can send socks, gloves, hats, whatever we can to help those in need out.



Our sweet friend Laura is a blogger from the Little Egg Harbour area of New Jersey.  Luckily, she and her family stayed safe and were spared damage to their home.  But, Laura was affected in different way.  She went to see how she could help others, and her heart was broken by the need for the smaller things.  Things like socks.  So, she put together a call for action.



You can read her account of the disaster here.  

If you would like to help, you must act quickly…can you send some love in the form of sock, gloves, hats, anything to someone in need?

It seems like a small task, but if we all send a little something, it can make a great impact.

Please mail as quickly as possible, since the need is urgent.

Please mail socks, gloves and/or hats to:


Socks for Sandy
P.O. Box 520
Little Egg Harbor, NJ  08087

Laura will receive all packages and immediately take them to the local hurricane shelter for distribution. Any excess will be given to the other hurricane shelters up and down New Jersey’s coastline. 

This is a great time to show your children that they can do something small to help other children too.  Get them involved if you can.  I know my little girl was devastated by the pictures on television.  She had lots of questions, and was scared.  She is excited to help, and I think it makes her feel like someone would help us if we suffered a similar tragedy.

There are other ways to help as well.  You can make a donation directly to The Red Cross.  


I would love for you to share if you can. 



Please help make a difference!



God bless,

Due to having some of my content and posts stolen by no good lazy people who don’t do their own projects, I am sorry to have to truncate (shorten) my feeds. Please don’t hold it against me, and continue reading, because I do love you and want to share my tutorials with you ;)

Love,

Jessica

    Jessica, I’m sending YOU 1000 giant hugs for sharing this with your readers! I appreciate it sooooo much!

    And I love that Kristi’s hubby is in the area helping out. That’s been one of the neatest things to see: all the ambulances, electric trucks, and other support vehicles from different parts of the country. Reaffirms how much good there really is out there!

    Wonderful idea!! I love how people come together and help each other out. We live in western NY state so we felt the weather but only a bit of power outages. My thoughts and prayers to those in need.

    I have plenty of socks to send that are used, clean and in good condition. Are those acceptable? I hope that’s not a dumb question but I don’t have money to send and would love to still help in some way. Thanks for posting this important cause!
