Fundraising for Relief!

  • WARNING: SPAM/ASKING FOR MONEY TO FOLLOW

    Now that I've gotten that out of the way, I know many people on this list have been seriously and deeply effected by Sandy and that all of us want to do our part to help.  Not everyone can be out there with a shovel so here's another way to pitch in

    Here's how you can help if you can't physically make it out to rock.  I organize the NYC Vintage Motorcycle Show with some friends.  As an organization, we've been doing tons of work and fundraisers for Sandy.  We're an NYS recognized non-profit (but not federally recognized so no tax breaks or nuthin') and since the storm we have been using our bookkeeping/fundraising infrastructure 100% for Sandy Relief.  In one week we've managed to donate over $100 in tools and supplies and raise $1279 in cash and paypal donations and raffles.

    Here's the part where I ask for your help.  We're trying to get the last little bit of cash to push us over $1400 mark so that, when the become available, we can get our hands on 2, 5000watt+ generators.  These generators will go directly to the rockaways to powering relief centers and individual houses in need of things like pumping out and dehumidifing.

    HOW TO GIVE:
    Head to http://www.nycvms.org and take a look in the top left corner for the DONATE TO HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF Paypal button.  Click there and send what you can. Sometimes it needs a click and a reload (we're bikers, not programmers... sorry).  That money will go straight through to the people who need it.

    Thanks guys.

  • Hey will just try reloading it once. That seems to cure the issue. Like I said, I'm a biker not a programmer.

    If that fails lemme know?

  • OOPS!  Figured it out.  If you want to donate, click "open in new window" on the paypal link.  For some reason that seems to make it work!
