When my daughter asked for contributions of coats, sweaters or blankets to help those who lost everything to storm Sandy, I made one phone call and posted one item on Facebook. The contributions received have been, literally, overwhelming. Thanks to all of you for such amazing generosity.
At least 8 boxes of blankets, coats and sweaters have already been shipped. Moments after I took this picture four more boxes arrived. We estimate that we will send twenty-five more boxes to the distribution car wash in New Jersey.
And to those who shipped independently (from Southern California, from Nevada, and from Texas) thank you, thank you, thank you.
Some of the most gut wrenching contributions were of clothes and sweaters for infants and toddlers who, too, lost everything except loving family and generous strangers.
