In a New York/East Coast Frame of Mind—Ways to Help Hurricane Sandy Victims

A week ago, I was in New York City for Strata’s Big Data Conference. The weather was sunny and mild and as I walked around the City I was reminded of just how vibrant it is and told my husband later that evening that we have to visit it more often. After the conference, I headed home and then watched with disbelief as this wonderful city, surrounding areas, and many more states were engulfed by Hurricane Sandy. I was saddened by the destruction and loss of life, but today am reminded of the resilience of its inhabitants as the clean up and rebuilding begins. For those of you interested in helping, I point you to ABC News’ story and the Wall Street Journal’s article on ways to help the storm victims. Or you can go to the Red Cross home page for information on how to make a financial donation or give blood. To all of you on the East Cost impacted by Hurricane Sandy: Our hearts go out to you and you are in our prayers.
