FRIENDS: Considering that countless people across the five boroughs remain and will continue to be without power for at least another week and, that this will be the coldest week of the year yet, Shaun Rose and I have decided to try and raise some money for the sole purpose of buying/supplying Mylar Foil blankets to those without heat. Mylar blankets are a cheap and easy way to Provide compact emergency protection in all weather conditions. Further, when used properly they retain/reflect back 90% of body heat. With the generous help of Shaun Rose (and his family) in Staten Island and Rebecca Weiss in Brooklyn, we will distribute these blankets by Tuesday, to the areas hit the worst in these two boroughs. These are the areas the 3 of us know best, so that's what we are concentrating on, for right now. Ideally, I would like to put in a bulk order by 3pm tomorrow, Monday the 4th, to be overnighted to both SI and BK first thing Tuesday morning. I am negotiating prices right now, but it looks like each blanket (roughly 60”x 90”), will run about $1.50 each. Once the order is put in, I WILL PROVIDE/POST RECEIPTS FOR ALL OF OUR PURCHASES on this page. PLEASE DONATE; I am not setting any particular goal-whatever we raise we will use to purchase these blankets, which will go directly to those in need within the next 48 hours (and hopefully sooner). THANK YOU!!
