The New York and New Jersey area has a special place in Mom's heart because her parents were from Brooklyn, and Mom was born on Long Island. Mom still has cousins that live in New York and many blogging friends in the area.
My Mom and I donated to the Humane Society, the Red Cross and to the
Jewish Federation Sandy Relief Fund in N.J. and YOU can help too!
There are organizations EVERYWHERE with lists of where and how you can help. Before you donate be sure you are donating to a reputable organization!
One place to find a list is:

And...I just heard this morning on THE TODAY SHOW that there is going to be a huge benefit concert FRIDAY NIGHT AT 8PM ET ON NBC....It is called
"Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together" It will feature New Jersey's own Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi, as well as artists such as, Sting, Christina Aguilera, Billy Joel and many others! It will be hosted by Today's Matt Lauer, Brian Williams and Jimmy Fallon will make appearances as well.
How ironic or prophetic that Bruce Springsteen recorded this song over 30 years ago?
