Nancy Blazer started the campaign

107 days of living in a motel. 107 days of being in your own home with no heat in the dead of winter. 107 days of going to the volunteer fire department hall to get a hot meal.

 

107 days later, over 3,500 families in New York and New Jersey are still displaced from Hurricane Sandy. The main grocery store in The Rockaways, Queens, New York is still closed. Thousands of businesses are still affected and people are without work because their jobs disappeared in the aftermath of Sandy.

 

The need is still here and is very real. Efforts are going on yet today to muck out houses, replace flooded furnaces, deliver meals and clothing to families who lost everything they owned, and care for hundreds of displaced pets who live in warehouses awaiting a home.

 

In the fall of 2012, when Hurricane Sandy hit, we were trying to decide how to celebrate our 60th birthdays in grand style. A spa retreat in Tuscany, Hawaii, or other equally exotic venue. After Hurricane Sandy hit, however, it didn’t feel quite right to indulge in hedonistic luxury when so many people lost so much. Not long thereafter the idea for “Birthday Girls for Good” (BGG) was born: joining forces with organized volunteer efforts in New York and New Jersey and giving them our hands-on support for four days in March. To multiply our efforts, we’ve invited girlfriends and sisters to join us on our trip (60th birthday not mandatory)!

 

And to further compound our impact, we want to raise $2,000 to donate to Hurricane Sandy relief. Please join us, Birthday Girls for Good, in helping a Sandy victim with your donation. All funds will go directly to relief efforts, and we’ll be sure to let you know where .

 

We are partnering with Crowdtilt as our collection venue. (Your donation to Crowdtilt will include a 2.5% credit card transaction fee.)

 

We urge you to donate today and to pass along this invitation to your friends and family.

 

On behalf of Hurricane Sandy relief, we thank you for your support.

 

Cheers,
