You know that feeling you get when your feet are cold and slip on a pair of warm socks?
Or how you can warm your hands and head while outside by wearing gloves and a hat?
That wonderful feeling of warmth, of comfort, is something we take for granted.
For those affected by Hurricane Sandy, it is a feeling we want to give back to them.
I am joining Hometalk and a fantastic group of Hometalk bloggers to help spread the word and
and share the efforts of
Socks for Sandy
Socks for Sandy is about helping those affected by the hurricane who are in need
of socks, gloves, hats and other warm things to wear.
Please note that there is a quick turnaround time of
Please help if you are able to and share if you can to spread the word and get others involved too
Here's a bit of information:
'Laura Kuhlmann, a blogger and member of Hometalk who lives in Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey, was fortunate that her neighborhood was spared with only minor damages. But just a few minutes down the road, entire areas were wiped out including Mystic Island, Osborne Island, and Tuckerton Beach. Long Beach Island, just across the bay, also suffered extraordinary damage just as every barrier island and shore town up and down New Jersey's once-beautiful coastline has.
She wanted to collect some warmth for the victims of Sandy, and shared her idea with me and our fellow blogging friends on Hometalk. Our network of Hometalk bloggers also includes several members living in New Jersey who were affected by Hurricane Sandy.
After hearing about what Laura was thinking ~ we embraced the idea enthusiastically
with offers of help to bring this idea to fruition.
So here we are.
Our mission is a simple one.
And has a fast turn-around time too.
We want to provide socks to warm one's feet, gloves to warm one's hands, and winter hats
If you would like to help~
gather up some warmth to share by collecting
socks, gloves, and winter hats
and send them to
