I grew up in the small, tight-knit Village of Island Park on Long Island, and then made my home in the neighboring city of Long Beach, NY until I relocated to the kindred city of Long Beach, CA. Both IP and LBNY are amongst the hardest hit by hurricane Sandy and are STILL working tirelessly to recover from the devastation and will be for some time. I'm thankful my family and friends are safe, but so sad for the magnitude of their losses. I've been watching my hometown heros' rebuilding efforts and offers of assistance from a far and with a heavy heart and felt compelled to take action! While there has been a tremendous outpouring of food and clothing donations, assistance from the Red Cross and FEMA has been scarce and disappointing. I'm starting this fundraiser in an effort to do my part and help facilitate the needed financial assistance for both communities. I have selected two local beneficiaries to receive all funds raised from this effort:

1. City of Long Beach Relief Fund
http://www.longbeachny.org/

2. The ALL volunteer Island Park Fire Department (of which my Dad is a retired volunteer)

If you prefer to donate directly please do, otherwise funds will be equally donated to each organization from my paypal business account - GloWorks, Inc. I will be sure each of you are recognized.

I am proud of my birthplace community and their resiliency, and know they will come back stronger than ever! I'm also proud of my Long Beach, CA community as I've seen first hand their ability to impact change and support those in need. There is a great need here my friends... I know I can count on you. Of course donations are not limited to those that live in Long Beach, ALL donations are gratefully accepted and appreciated! Please donate!
