Post links and ideas here for helping out the massive amount of people effected by big ol' Sandy.

I don't have much money to spare, but I'd love to help. Perhaps a trip to NYC is in order.

I just saw this posted on Facebook:
"New York needs your help. Email nycservice@cityhall.nyc.gov with your name, email and what borough you will be in."

The Red Cross is looking for volunteers to assist in shelters throughout the region. Shifts are 12-hours and volunteers work over multiple days. Training will be afforded to those without experience. Sign up by filling out an online application http://www.nyredcross.org/?nd=intake&logout=1&keeppage=1&ep=10650. At this time, individual donations or collections are not accepted. Per the Red Cross: "The cost to sort, package and distribute these types of donations to disaster victims is usually greater than the cost of purchasing the items locally, and it is logistically impossible to distribute a wide variety of individual items in a meaningful and equitable way." Instead, make a financial gift via http://www.redcross.org, 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

According to Slate, Occupy is helping as well (and seemingly doing a good job).
The website is http://interoccupy.net/occupysandy/

I donated through Convoy of Hope because they have a better charity navigator rating than Red Cross.

Here's what people need most from Gothamist

How To Volunteer, Donate To Help Hurricane Sandy Victims (also from Gothamist)


Some are saying that clothing, toiletries and cleaning supplies are a bigger need than gift cards/money because so many stores are still closed. :(

CAAAV - a local pan-Asian organisation accepting donations and volunteers. I think they were mainly working in Chinatown initially, but they seem to be covering other areas as well.

Occupy Sandy NJ has a registry for donations that they need. You can send food, clothing, toiletries, even children's books.

NYCares has a few volunteering projects going on, which unfortunately I can not participate in as I have to be at work.

Hey, if anyone wants to help the animals affected by the Hurricane/Superstorm, my friend Michelle runs a very small, local shore-based rescue 501(c)(3). Michelle got married before the storm, and instead of going on her honeymoon has spent every day driving around helping people who lost their homes care for their animals as well as helping homeless animals and getting care packages out to rescuers so they have enough to maintain their colonies.

Every penny goes to help the animals. No one takes a salary, its all volunteers doing their best for the animals.
http://showmethefriskies.chipin.com/hur ... ef-efforts

I donated to them as much as I can spare right now, because I am so grateful for all they do.
