Looking for Staten Island Sandy Relief Recommendations
Today is Giving Tuesday, the "opening day" for philanthropic holiday giving, like Black Friday and Cyber Monday are to holiday shopping. I want to donate to an organization that supports Sandy relief in the Staten Island area, and am looking for suggestions.
Here's what I've found so far:
• Jon Stewart mentioned Staten Island Strong, a project of the Carl V. Bini Memorial Fund, in his November 12th episode.
• The Wall Street Journal reported on November 2nd that a Relief Fund was created for Staten Island and New Jersey through the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
• SILive.com has a link on its home page for people to donate to the Project Hospitality Staten Island Hurricane Relief Fund.
Do you have any recommendations, or know anything about the organizations I've listed?
