29 Oct Ostomy Supply Donations
Wind, rain, flooding… Hello Sandy, it’s unpleasant to meet you.
For those of you unaware of the what’s going on in the East Coast of the US and making it’s way up to Canada, we are in the midst of Hurricane Sandy, the worst hurricane in recorded history.
I’ve been staying up to date with the news through articles, videos, pictures, and tweets, and also seeing status updates from my friends in NYC about the happenings of the storm – it doesn’t look good. There’s already flooding, power outages, and tons of destruction still on the way. The storm is supposed to continue through tonight and tomorrow.
Disasters such as these often bring about the need for relief and I wouldn’t doubt that after Sandy makes it’s way through the East Coast, help will be needed. I’m writing this blog post because I want to help.
I’ve already tweeted and posted this on my Facebook timeline, but I’m asking for information on any organizations who collect extra ostomy supplies for relief in these circumstances. I have tons to donate and it looks like this is the time.
So friends, I am asking you 3 things:
- If you know any organizations who collect ostomy supplies for donation, please post the information in the comments below or on the FB page.
- Share this post with your ostomy networks to find out the needed information and find those willing to donate.
- Donate supplies!
I really hope there is no need for disaster relief after this storm is over, but there will always be those in need. Now is as good a time as any to donate!
Keep an eye on this post as I will be compiling organization information as I get it.
