On Saturday, I dropped off some supplies at a Hurricane Sandy shelter at Rutgers University. Included among the items were 20 of the Adafruit coloring books, each bundled in a bag, along with a pack of crayons (above). Phil (pt) was kind enough to overnight the coloring books to me, so that I could include them in my care package. It felt really great to do something to help out my New Jersey neighbors, many of whom are still without power or access to their homes, and in some cases have lost everything.
I’d like to encourage you to donate as well, either with your time or with funds. The Newark Star Ledger has put together a list of ways to donate to help victims of Sandy here in NJ. There’s also a list of local organizations in the Trenton/Philadelphia area who are helping out. You can also check out the Sandy charity list at Charity Navigator.
Finally, I’d like to give many thanks to all the people around the world who have already given their support! Thank you on behalf of the Garden State!
