NOTE: Helping others is a wonderful and noble action. HOWEVER, please be realistic and reasonable, if helping others involves endangering your own safety and the safety of others, then avoid unnecessary risks.
***A message from Meetup HQ about Hurricane Sandy***
Meetup HQ is based in New York City, so we’re keenly aware of the impact an event like Hurricane Sandy can have on a community. We wanted to take a moment to share ways that your Meetups can make a difference at times like this:
●Be safe & look out for each other.
●After the storm passes, people in your Meetup and neighborhood may need help. If you live on the Eastern Seaboard, consider scheduling a relief Meetup. Visit the Red Cross online to see where hands are needed most.
●If you are not in the area affected by Sandy, there are still many ways to help. The Red Cross invites community groups to get in touch about raising money.
If you do organize a Sandy-related Meetup, please be sure to add the words “Hurricane Sandy” to the title so people who want to contribute can easily find you.
This may not be the happiest Halloween, but in any small way, please at least have a Safe Halloween!
Thank you for your support and membership! We hope to see you soon under much better circumstances!
