The sorts of things that I have scheduled to share in this space all feel so petty in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.  The enormity of the devastation and desperation is truly mind-blowing, and now, the threat of a nor’easter is on the way.  So many people have generously come together to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy, but there is still more work to be done.  Solid up to date information is coming out of the Occupy Sandy Relief effort website (also on twitter @OccupySandy and on facebook), and under the twitter hashtags #SandyVolunteer, #OWS, and #NotAnotherKatrina).  Necessary items can even be purchased via the Occupy Sandy’s wedding registry on Amazon.  I’m not sharing this to make folks feel like their efforts are not enough, I’m simply encouraging involvement.  It is greatly needed.
