As the aftermath of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Sandy is discovered, those affected need your help. One easily and reliable way to get assistance to those in need of help can be by donating to the American Red Cross. It is easily done by visiting redcross.org or stopping into your local Red Cross offices.
Also consider donating blood! Due to Sandy, many of those who regularly donate blood in the region are not able to do so, which is creating a shortage. You can help to ensure those who need blood can get it by donating locally in your area. The American Red Cross will ensure necessary supplies are rushed to those areas needing it.
If you know someone in the affected area, please help them in any way you can. If they have pets, temporarily adopt their pets, so they can concentrate on more important tasks to speed their lives back to normal.
