Custom cupcake company Polkadot Cupcake Shop just launched a new cupcake to benefit the state where I grew up, New Jersey, in the form of a I Love NJ cupcake, whose proceeds will go to Rebuild the Jersey Shore. Here is Rebuild the Jersey's Shore's latest Facebook update (I do not see a way to donate directly there though), followed by positions that need volunteers - click the link to find out more:
In the past few days we have been busy receiving and shipping tens of thousands of donated items and doing our best to get them out to those who need them the most! It's an honor to be a part of this community coming together. Its just a bit of effort from a lot of people that has made what we've already done possible. That same passion and drive is what it will take to rebuild our homes, our businesses and our communities.For those looking to volunteer or donate in New York City, Occupy Sandy Relief and @occupysandy on Twitter offer resources for those on the ground doing important volunteer work every day, and they also have New Jersey information about dropoff and volunteer opportunities.
