A way to help people who lost everything in the hurricane

1. We just came from Shor Yoshuv in Far Rockaway and they really need our help. The supplies are getting low and people keep coming. As you all know people lost everything. Right now they're in need of water bottles, formula, blankets (all sizes), twin sets of linen, canned foods, pastas, the list goes on.....there are women there who are in charge of the stock and you can call them for an update on specifics of what they need.

Please call for information: ..

2. Dear Friends,

Since last week's hurricane, many people in my area have
lost their homes, clothing, vehicles, everything. I am lucky enough to not have
lost anything, but only to not have power in my home for 11 days now. There are
thousands of people worse off than I am.

I wanted to help those who need help badly, and quickly
worked with my friend Dave Weinberg to create GiftCardRelief.org.

On our spare time, we partnered with local relief
organizations and have been working with a few corporations to get access to
gift cards in bulk sent to the local organizations who can deliver them to
those in need ASAP.

The request for gift cards came directly from the relief
orgs on the ground, and we agreed that this would be a great way to easily help
those who lost so much. Read more about why
gift cards make sense in these relief efforts.

We are asking for individuals, schools, organizations,
synagogues, churches, etc. to come together and raise funds for this purpose.

This is a grassroots effort where ALL the funds are going
directly to aid. We are not taking in a cent. We are mainly facilitating and
promoting this transaction.

Please consider donating and sharing this website with the
people and organizations around you. It's a worthy cause, and the people in NY
need it desperately.

Thank you.
