Good evening, all.
I hope that you and your family were not affected by Hurricane Sandy.
I live on the Rockaway Peninsula and my home was flooded and is currently not habitable.
Five feet of water immersed my street and wrecked my home.
However, I am very fortunate. We have flood insurance and a large, supportive family and friends network so we will be able to get back on our feet.
Other residents have flood damage, debris hit their home, major roof damage and some had their homes burnt to the ground. Some didn't have flood insurance or any local friends or relatives that they can stay with.
I am counting my blessings.
Folks, be thankful for what you have because believe me, you'll miss it when its gone.
With Thanksgiving holiday coming up, please donate to charities that are helping Hurricane Sandy victims.
People can really use the help right now. Some have no clean water, food, inadequate shelter and very few clothes.
Even if you give a $10 donation to a local faith based organization or some other charity, it can go very, very far and will be appreciated.
Be well and I will be in touch soon about an upcoming event. I'm thinking a late-year social event and a social media training event in January 2013.
