Hey everyone. This is a Big Deal project Michele and Leah have been working on behind the scenes for a while and now it’s going live and we need your help.
So many kids were displaced after Superstorm Sandy and still many other children who did not lose their houses still lost many of their possessions in flood waters.
Our goal is to bring a smile to the faces of these kids and their parents this holiday season by delivering to them toys, games, etc.
It’s pretty easy to donate. All you have to do is go to the Sacks For Sandy site and click on the link to the Amazon Wishlist, which has been built with kids of all ages in mind, even teenagers. You purchase something, it gets sent to Michele’s house and as the gifts come in she will have volunteers wrapping the presents (we are wrapping them color coded to age group so please send presents unwrapped).
We will then coordinate with various relief organizations to get the gifts to kids on Long Island, in the five boroughs and in New Jersey.
Our goal is 500 gifts. Together, I know we can do this.
Let’s give the gift of generosity to children who need something to smile about this holiday season.
All the info you need is at the site. If you have any questions at all, you can use the ask box there.
Please reblog, share on twitter, Facebook, etc. so we can meet our goal. And if you are local (Long Island) please contact Michele if you would like to help wrap and/or deliver presents.
