How can you help?

Stop driving cars and consuming oil. Typhoon Sandy was a result of human-caused climate change.

My heart goes out to All that had to suffer thru sandy. I will send everything I can afford to the relife effort. BUT I refuse to WASTE money by sending it to the American Red Cross. Why would you send money to support the someplace that spends MOST of their money on management and very little on those that need it. send to salvation army or someone that give most or ALL the money collected to those that lost it all

Make sure you do not forget the cities away from the beach that got damaged by Sandy. Make sure your aid/donations get to someone who truely needs it and not money for someone's new vacation home. The locations/vacation areas used for the president-governor photo op are NOT the only damaged areas.

Good Luck to all those affected.

That's the impression many got because the ocean side damage was photogenically impressive but the ocean side communities did not suffer the worst. Brigatine NJ is a summer vacation spot for most. The photo op of Christie-Obama in Brigatine probably was a strategic one because there is money/potential support/donations/votes in ocean side communities.

Much of the ocean side property in NJ is a second vacation home or rental property for most. Yes it is 'A' loss but not the loss of an actual permanent lifetime home for many There are actual year round residents but I would be surprised if most damaged property is NOT a second property for many.

It's places like Hoboken or Staten Island, mostly year round residential communities that will need the most help. It's the flooded areas that are suffering the most right now. At least the ocean goes back out to sea unlike a creek, river or bay which can only go down an over burden sewer system.

REMEMBER, aid for those in need of the basics of life and not a second vacation home.
