Although Hurricane Sandy is out of the news it is definitely not out of the lives of many here on the East Coast. Her wrath was felt far and wide and many are still dealing with picking up the pieces. A couple weeks ago Appaman did a fundraiser on our site where 15% of all sales were collected over the course of a week and this money is now being donated to a relief effort. We chose Restore Red Hook. www.restoreredhook.org
We felt a kinship to this organization because it serves entrepreneurs. The vendors that will benefit from Restore Red Hook lost their businesses due to the storm. This not only hurts their lives but the lives of their employees, their neighborhood, and the general morale of the area. We hope that our donation will help in the effort to get Red Hook back on its feet.
