BENEFITING: THE MAYORS FUND TO ADVANCE NEW YORK CITY
The Mayor’s Fund is accepting financial donations from organizations and individuals to support hurricane relief efforts. Donations will be dispersed to relief efforts and organizations. The City is currently identifying immediate aid needs, including food, water and hygiene supplies, as well as long-term relief and restoration efforts.
The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, which facilitates innovative public-private partnerships throughout NYC’s five boroughs. The Fund relies on individuals, foundations, and corporations to support public programs in areas including the environment, youth development, financial empowerment, health, volunteerism, and the arts.
I hope that this email finds you and your family safe and well. As everyone knows, Superstorm / Hurricane Sandy has had a most-devastating impact in the North East, mainly New York and New Jersey. Words cannot even describe what life has been like in New York City this past week. I am fortunate in that the Basen/Comerchero family is safe. We have of course had disruptions in our daily routine, but compared to most we have absolutely no complaints.
Over the last several days I have tried to wrap my head around what has occurred this past week. I have friends and coworkers who have not had power, a hot shower, or cell phone coverage all week. I also have a few colleagues who have lost everything. Again, it is mind-boggling to think of.
To that effect, I have created a donation page to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York. If you want to donate, please do so. Kindly forward to friends and family. If not, feel free to delete this email. I will not send any follow-up emails asking for donations. I have no donation Target Goals or requirements. I am simply fundraising to assist those in most need right now and ask that you consider donating to this crucial cause.
Thanks in advance,
