***Your HELP is Still Needed***

Hi Dear Bloggy Friends!
If you or someone you loved lost
everything they owned,
what would you do?
There are many still in Great need after
*Super Storm Sandy* hit the New York area.
The story is no longer making
the headlines,
but people are still in great need of the
I have a sweet contact, Indra,
who is in the midst of
of an area that seems to be forgotten. 
She has been working since the storm
 hit to HELP others
right around her that need everything.
I was privileged to send out
some gift cards, but am now
 aware that more is needed.
I could NOT walk away.
Will you Help?
What can YOU do?
1.  Help me get the word out.  Could you
do a post on your blog? Share with friends
you know?
2.  You Can Send a Box of Needed items
(see list below).  
 There is no middle man and I trust 
Indra to get items out to those in need.
If you choose to fill a box,
Please, contact me so that I can give
you her address,
I will not print it here due to being
cautious of others who lurk to harm.
Mark your BOX with SANDY.
BASIC Necessities
winter coats
gloves/work gloves
plastic wrap
children's toys
3.  If filling a box is something you are not
 able to do, could you donate?
I WILL make sure 100% of those funds 
 help send boxes and purchase
 more needed items and gift cards.
Nothing, I mean nothing is going to me
or anyone else.

Thank you so much for stopping by today
and reading this!

In SANDY'S Aftermath ~ How You Can HELP Someone In Their Time of Need

Hi there my sweet friends!
Like many of us, these past few weeks have been
quite emotional and filled with sorrow by
the destruction we have witnessed.
We have seen how a storm can turn an ordinary
city and cripple it to the core.
Have you ever had something happen and KNOW
in your gut that it is divine?
Last week, just before the storm a sweet
lady purchased some items from my etsy shoppe.
I remembered when I saw it, that her address was
in Brooklyn.  Well, little did I know how GOD
would use that in my life today.
I had contacted her because her check had not yet
arrived. I had also mention I knew that *Sandy* was
probably the problem.  Today she graciously
contacted me, and through a series of emails
back and forth, she shared that she was
very close the the area that over 100 homes had
been destroyed by fire.  She told me that her
sons school had at least 80 who were affected in
some way.  Those neighborhoods consisted of largely
police and firefighters homes. 
It broke my heart and I got an overwhelming impression
that I must do something.  GOD brought back to memory our
sermon of last week.  God wants us to
WAKE up our world to see Jesus.  To be HIS hands and
feet, to be a light that shines into a dark and hurting world.
 No doubt in my mind but he put precious woman and
her family right in my path for that reason.
What am I going to do?
As of now I am not sure where GOD is leading. 
I am getting the word out to those around me and hoped
that my bloggy friends would take the time and
share in this if they can.
Please give to the RED CROSS if you are able as
the clean up and just basic necessities of life are so needed.
Also, Xavier High School , the school where
this lady's son attends, has on
their web page how you can help directly to this area and
also you may donate monies if you are able.
Just click and you will be on this page to get further details.
I am in prayer for leading and direction.
I hope you wont forget those who are still dealing with
the aftermath of this storm and snowstorm they got Wednesday.
Be a LIGHT to your world!
