$35 for 35 - Support Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts!!!
Your donation goes further on the Virtual Food Drive! Thanks to the Food Bank's wholesale purchasing power and efficient distribution model, a gift made here provides more food than through a traditional food drive —– doubling or even tripling the amount of food your dollar can provide at the grocery store.
For my 35th birthday, I am asking all my friends, if they are able, to donate $35 to the New York Food Bank as part of my virtual food drive. This money will go to the emergency response efforts of the Food Bank, which is working around the clock to provide basic food and supplies to the victims of Hurricane Sandy. According to news reports, between 30,000 and 40,000 New Yorkers are now homeless as a result of Sandy; and many more are without food and other necessities. This site will allow you to purchase specific food items or make a direct monetary donation. I hope you can make my birthday wish come true and help me reach my fundraising goal.
