Sandy Comfort from the Women For Hire and Spark & Hustle Team
With your generous contributions and unending support, the Spark & Hustle (and Women For Hire) community raised over $100,000 in just 15 days for people affected by hurricane Sandy. Our promise to you was that every dollar would go directly into the hands of the those hardest hit by the storm.
Over the last month, my team and I have gone to work on your behalf, purchasing kitchen appliances, power tools, electrical supplies, food, clothing, toys and more for those whose homes were destroyed. The most unexpected blessings of coordinating this campaign are the beautiful bonds we’ve formed with the families.
Earlier this week we learned of a small holiday breakfast organized for 115 public school families affected by the storm. P.S. 41 in Staten Island is a Title 1 school, where more than half the families live in poverty. They soon learned that there was a whole lot more in store for them than donuts and fruit.
Take a look at the WABC report. It’s two-minutes worth watching:
I’m so honored to have you in our community. Your continuous cheerleading for this campaign has been top of mind for me every step of the way. I’m humbled by your trust and I hope you take pride in knowing that you’ve helped to forever change the lives of hundreds of families.
Sending you lots of good cheer!
