Hurricane Sandy victims still in need of help

I would like to ask the American people where you have gone.

After Hurricane Katrina, the Red Cross received $4 billion dollars in donations to help the people affected. That’s billion with a “B.”

Hurricane Sandy is going to be much worse in damage to people’s lives and homes, yet right now, Red Cross has only received $11 million in donations. What has happened to you?
Go to Red Cross now, and donate!

America is the most generous country on the face of the earth and these people need our help. If you don’t like Red Cross, go to and give there.

A full 100 percent of donations given to the disaster relief fund goes to churches and synagogues in the affected area to get the supplies distributed to those who need it most. Did you know that people are having to board themselves into their own homes to protect themselves from roving bands of teenagers?

The media are not covering this. Please people, wake up and remember who you are and donate.
