If You Want to Join In...

This poster is by designer, Micah Heiselt - one of our good friends.  It's one of the new posters for sale at Print Aid NYC!    100% of proceeds go to the Mayor's Fund for Hurricane Relief.  New posters daily.

If you'd like to join in with The Mormon Helping Hands this Saturday or Sunday, volunteers will be going out in force to help with storm relief and clean up efforts in Staten Island and Coney Island.  All are welcome.  It's an experience you will never forget!!  Tasks will include removing damaged property and damaged sheetrock/carpet, water removal, cleaning houses, etc., depending on the requested help.  Danny and I will be going to Staten Island on Saturday.

When: Saturday, 11/17 and Sunday, 11/18 starting at 8:30am - ending at 4:00 pm.

What To Do: Simply show up at the above location (Sunday will begin with a brief spiritual meeting)

Please bring any tools or equipment that would be helpful (work gloves are a must! - preferably with rubber liners, face mask, eye protection, crowbars, hammers, large garbage bags, cleaning supplies, etc.)  There will also be some work supplies provided at each meeting location, in addition to a yellow vest - which is important for safety and group purposes out in the field.

  1. I just wanted to say a quick, but sincere "THANK YOU" for all the updates about Sandy and ideas for ways we all can help. Earlier this week, I mailed a whole package of "Happy Day" cards from my son's 1st-grade class (and a few from my 4 and 1-year-old). I hope they bring cheer to those experiencing such discomfort, loss, and heartache. It felt so good to be able to do something from thousands of miles away. Thanks for spreading the love!

  2. Starlee - that is amazing!! How sweet of you guys to do that. The founder of Park Slope Parents wrote and said she received a bundle of cards and she was so, so happy and excited. Many lives will be touched. Thank you and thanks to those sweet kids. Have a great weekend. xoxo

  3. I find myself feeling so sick when I think about those affected by the storm. My parents live in Maine so were thankfully spared from this. But it feels so close to home, regardless of their safety. In the past, we lost our entire home and all our belongings, so I can emphasize with the devastation felt by those in NY/NJ etc. I wish there was more I could physically do, but at least I can donate to the cause.

    I was so happy to see this print because Micah is married to an old childhood friend of mine. I love seeing how small the world is when people come together to help one another.
