As a Jersey bred girl, the damage that Hurricane Sandy did to the Jersey shore really hits close to home. The shore is my safe haven. It's awful to think about how distraught the shore is after this storm. So, I've teamed up with my kick ass friends at The Monthly Pit (a group who puts on monthly rock shows to keep the music scene alive in NJ) to bring to you a fundraiser for Sandy relief - Rock, Shop, & Relief: A Sandy Charity Event. It's a rock show & flea market all in one featuring local bands & vendors in NJ!
I have a tiny favor to ask of you: can you please help us spread the word about this event in any way possible (blog, Facebook, Twitter)? It would mean the world to me. I realize a lot of my readers are not on the East Coast, but perhaps you have readers or friends who are. We would love to have as many people as possible attend this show to raise money and awareness to restore the shore!
The event is tomorrow! There is more event info here on the event page on Facebook. All $5 ticket proceeds and a percentage of most of our vendors' profits (thank you vendors - you rule!) will be donated to the American Red Cross (we are not affiliated in any way; merely volunteering to raise money).
If you can't make the event, you can still help by donating something as small as oatmeal or a hammer! Again - I realize many of you are not from NJ. That's okay! You can totally still help! Here is a
"wedding registry" list of items that are still needed by many Hurricane Sandy victims. Pick one tiny item to do a random act of kindness and you will make a huge impact (and also know that you're funds are going to donating actual items!). It's a win-win.
Thank you for any and all of your help! Keep living in love.
