Participate in Secret Sandy This Holiday to Aid Hurricane Victims

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

One month after Hurricane Sandy hit the Northeast, many families are still struggling to recuperate from the damages they suffered from the storm.

To help, two women (Joy Huang and Kimberley Berdy) launched Secret Sandy, a Secret Santa-type endeavor for affected families who need extra help this holiday season.

Children and their families can register on the site and write letters to Secret Sandy with their wish lists, which will be sent to registered people who wish to donate. This is one example of a letter by a 3-year-old boy from Gerritsen Beach, N.Y.:

When we were hit by Hurricane Sandy, I was so scared.

The first thing I thought was the water was coming in my house fast.

When Hurricane Sandy was over, all I saw was all my toys broken. All I felt was sadness.

For the past few weeks, we have been living in different places & now a hotel.


The thing that I miss most is my Thomas & friends scooter & Thomas trains.


The one thing I really want for the holidays is to be back home, in my own room. 

To get a Secret Sandy or to give a gift, register today at SecretSandy.org. To read letters and receive more information, check out Secret Sandy on Facebook and Twitter.
