Second off, a ton of channels and networks are airing the concert, you can make a donation to the Robin Hood Relief Fund on the official website and you can watch the concert at the link as well.
Thirdly, do not donate to the American Red Cross. The millions that they have received has only gone to watered down stew. They have like no blankets and we know from a friend who volunteered that they actually said no to giving away a blanket. Not to mention the Red Cross takes 9% of every donation for themselves. They are in my opinion horrible. Due to the fact that we have been devastated by Hurricane Sandy we have seen how utterly useless and horrible their service has been.
It should have been an easy process, yet at each turn the town keeps throwing new things at us. The house doesn't have asbestos or any other hazardous materials yet we are being given a run around on it. >_<
The bureaucracy of it all sucks.
I would like to also take a small moment here to thank Jedi Master J. or VI. Zexion (as he is currently called) for his sheer amount of donations, it seriously does help and he has gone above and beyond and we are extremely grateful. Thank you!
As always, anyone who wishes to help donate can do so here. You can say you helped fund the tearing down of a house! (Eventually >_>)
We forgot until it arrived at a house that we can't live at as we were continuing the clean up. So we set it up at our rental house and finally had some rest and relaxation for the first time since Hurricane Sandy hit.
I must say, the Wii U has been a ton of much needed fun for us. (If anyone wants to add me on Miiverse my username is Kohakuchan)
Other than that, Aleks' grandfather's van has been taken away by a scrapper. The house is still there as securing permits has taken longer than everyone thought.
Everyday has been a bit better than the last, but honestly... at the end of each day we just want to go home. Today though has been a day with no running around and just some simple relaxation. It has been nice and much needed.
Aleks' grandfather's house is going to be torn down probably tomorrow. This is a job that will cost probably around $10,000. That house didn't have insurance and FEMA isn't giving a dime for it. We do need help paying for this as we don't have the money for it.
If the town were to take it down though it would cost probably $50,000. Which would be very bad.
I must continue my plea for help in terms of donations to help tear it down. If you can't donate, please spread the word about this.
In terms of how donations are being used:
1. Donations will only be used to replace essential items lost by the hurricane, they will be used for repairs and for in some cases demolition. All donations will be receipted.
2. Not only will there be a receipt, but each one will be put into a receipt book and logged with the information on each donation.
3. Any donations that are left over will be used to help neighbors in the area.
Those are the basics on it, I don't have a degree in legalese so this will have to do for now. If you have any questions please send me a message.
I do have good news and will be able to give updates now as we do have internet back!
