Superstorm Sandy: What can I do?

We are suspending The Religion-Free Bible Project Indiegogo Campaign for the day in an effort to encourage people to lend their assistance to Superstorm Sandy victims.

As the effects of Superstorm Sandy continue to be felt across the east coast, the Red Cross and The Salvation Army are sending volunteers and materials in to help the victims. The Red Cross has more than 100 shelters set up along the East Coast. Four local Red Cross volunteers traveled from Indianapolis to White Plains, a suburb of New York City. Up to 170 more volunteers are available to follow; all are on standby as the damage is assessed. The Salvation Army sent 1,000 volunteers from around the country; those volunteers are now waiting on emergency management to direct them to where they can best help. The groups will provide food, shelter, games for kids and mental health support to the millions affected. From cleanup kits to emergency shelter to food, the organizations offer much-needed help after the devastating disaster.
