Hey - yep it's me again... and I know everyone is really busy with GOTV but could you take a few minutes between GOTV calls to help Sandy survivors?

See the folks at New York Communities for Change have been busting their butts to provide survivors of Hurricane Sandy in some of the poorest neighborhoods of NYC with things they need like food, portable radios, blankets and more.  But they need our help.  

Those who live in NYC can drop things off at their offices at 2-4 Nevins St in Brooklyn (at the corner of Nevins and Flatbush) and if you have a car, why not offer to make a few deliveries for them while you're at it?

For those of us who don't live in NYC we can help them out by donating to their Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.  

They've set a goal of raising $10,000 and are soooo let's put them over the top RIGHT NOW

So how does a pootie a thon work? It's easy...

 I will start us off with 5 pooties... then it's up to you.

For every pootie or woozle or pony or penguin posted in this diary by midnight tonight I will donate another $.05 to the NYCC Sandy Relief Fund.  

1. Recommend this diary- even if you yourself have no $ to contribute at this time (I can't emphasize this enough- I well know that not everyone in Kos land can afford to contribute $...if you can't afford it DON'T...there are other things you can do)...your recommendation of this diary will hopefully put it on the REC LIST so that others who can afford to contribute will see this

2. Tweet/Facebook/Email all your friends and send em the link to this diary

3. Post pooties! That's the easy part right?

4. Make a pledge yourself... a penny a pootie...whatever... as I see pledges come in I will update this main diary so we can all keep track.

Let the pootie party begin

Now it's YOUR turn...3...2...1.... post!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
