It could be that this was deemed a super storm, unlike any that had been seen in years so the "hype" was there. It could be that I have friends and family that live in NJ and NY that I was worried about because when was the last time something like this hit Manhattan? It could be that my beloved Seaside Heights (before Jersey Shore made it popular, people) had all but washed into the ocean.

Since it is important for us to help, especially within our own country, I thought I would share with you some great tips and places that you can donate to disaster relief.

You can donate directly to the American Red Cross disaster relief, which is a tried and true, and they will disperse the funds where they are needed most. And remember that you can SO EASILY text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Also, check out this article on.
