Hi, Chaos Crew–
My niece Katherine Dolan is a Brooklynite and a social media expert who created a really fantastic way to donate much needed items directly to Sandy’s victims– an Amazon “Wedding Registry”. Katherine and her two friends Alex and John cooked up the idea on Saturady and now the concept has gone viral, meaning that the word is getting out on how to help the folks in need.
Below is a letter Katherine sent out to family and friends on how to use the registry. And then below that are several links ot stories already written about their Occupy Sandy project. Way to go, Katherine and Team! ( And, in other Dolan Next Gen News, my other nieces in Brooklyn and Long Beach, Long Island have been doing tremendous work helping out on the local level. Very Proud of you all, Girls…)
Hi Family -
Alex, his friend John, and I went to help out the hurricane relief efforts at a church in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn today. This church is acting as a hub for “Occupy Sandy” which is delivering hot meals hands on volunteers, clothes, supplies, counseling, etc. to the most affected areas which we can get to by car.
Here is what you have to do:
1) Go to: http://www.amazon.com/registry/wedding/32TAA123PJR42
2) Search and select whatever you can contribute just like a normal
3) Make sure you select the listed “Occupy Sandy” address for
We are starting out with high priority items like flashlights, batteries, blankets and candles. Other categories will be added soon.
Please share with anyone near or far that you think would like to buy some supplies and help this cause! Feel free to forward my
email or just send the link.
And some related links on the registry:
Please spread the word! thanks.
Embracing my chaos and headed off to the dentist, Lian
