ATTENTION ALL FACEBOOK FRIENDS&FAMILY..I am personally asking you to please take a minute and read this.. On October 29th, Hurricane Sandy ravaged the tristate area causing devestation and extensive damage along the east coast. TODAY - i am focusing my efforts, and reaching out to YOU.! When many New York and New Jersey citizens evacuated to safety, Coast Guard men and women remained on watch in the brunt of this horrific storm. It was(and still is) their duty to be there, to rescue, to HELP, despite the fact that their own homes and families were in the direct path of the storm as well. Many of them lost everything being in some of the hardest hit areas of Staten Island. Right now, about 200 families from Coast Guard Sector NY have been displaced and are currently trying to relocate and recover. The Coast Guard Spouses' Association of Sector NY (Staten Island) is currently accepting and organizing donations, and the needs are incredibly huge. Keep in mind, many of these families have young children, are single parenting due to deployment, training, etc..and are far from family. It hits very close to home for me because it very well could have been Josh & I. I can tell you first hand being a coast guard wife, that life is a little(actually a whole lot) easier when you have a little help, and know that you are in fact, not alone.

SO.. I have an idea =) I am starting a $5 fundraiser.. that's right..only $5. Currently I have 1,061 Facebook friends.. if EACH of you reached out and donated - we would already have $5,305.. THEN i am asking you to copy and post this as your FB status, and share with YOUR friends and then ask them to share with THEIR friends.. just think if it kept going, and people kept sharing..the sky is the limit! And I think we could do a WONDERFUL thing! We are giving back to the families that sacrifice so much, and are currently sacrificing while their husbands/wives/daughters/sons are out there helping others during this TREMENDOUS time of need. These are everyday people with families who choose to help YOU..now its time to help them. I'd like to set a deadline of December 1st..and get the funds to the Spouse network right in time for the holiday season. I thankyou in advance for anything you'd like to give.. If you think $5 doesnt matter - IT DOES! That buys 5 rolls of toilet paper, a pair of gloves..and believe it or not, that means a LOT right now. And if you'd like to donate more, God bless you. I know & realize that many of you have been helping in a number of other ways, but I'm hoping you would consider donating a small amount of support for these families who give so much, even while going through so much. ALL proceeds will be going directly to the Coast Guard Spouse's Assoc. of Sector NY. THANKYOU! now PLEASE take a second, donate and most importantly..SHARE! It's very simple.. simply go to my campaign page, peek around, find the GIVE button, and follow the simple steps to make a secure donation through Paypal. Feel free to go beyond fb and share the link to my page through email, to your coworkers, family, etc. A HUGE thankyou from the bottom of my heart!
