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 close...so 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
