Donate to Hurricane Sandy – One Comment at a Time


This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here. Additionally, some of the offers on this page may no longer be available through Deals We Like.

Living in NYC I’ve seen the disaster of Sandy first hand. Well actually, I haven’t been out to Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, or even Battery Park, so I’ve probably seen nothing. As Mr. Deals mentioned yesterday, we did a huge Costco run yesterday and donated essential items to a local drop off place who was then distributing these items to those areas in need. It was so wonderful to see that probably half the line at Costco was doing the same thing. We stalked up on bandaids, lysol wipes, diapers, blankets, bread, garbage bags, plastic utensils, etc.

I was very fortunate that I did not lose power, a window, a car, or most importantly a home. Many others were not that fortunate and many clean up efforts are in full effect. To help with those less fortunate, a bunch of BoardingArea bloggers (the blog platform that I am part of) are donating $1 towards the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts for each comment on  our respective Hurricane Sandy posts. Between six of us bloggers, we will donate up to $1,800 – that means 1,800 comments are needed amongst all the blogs from you all!

In addition to commenting in this blog post, there are many ways to can actually earn miles for your donation. While this is by no means a cheap way to earn miles, it is something for contributing.  Another blogger, Wandering Aramean, compiled a list of those airlines/hotels giving out miles for those who donate:

You absolutely do not have to donate at all, just need to comment stating how you would like to help others in need. Since this is for a cause, there is no prize winner, just the motivation to get some of us to match your comments and donate. Please please please just one comment per person (per bog that is).

Make sure to comment on these other bloggers post as well who have joined the relief efforts: View From the WingMommy PointsThe Wandering ArameanGhetto IFE, and Very Good Points.  At 11:59pm EST Thursday November 8th, we will tally up the comments and between the six of us donate up to $1,800.

So sorry about all the Sandy posts, but this hits close to home for me. I am so happy to see all those from around the world checking in to see what they can do to help.

I volunteered in the Rockaways yesterday and I found it heartbreaking. Lovely people who have lost everything and yet who retain a sense of community, looking after each other. I am so lucky.

I live on the East Coast in Delaware and thankfully, my state received very little damage. It’s heartbreaking to see states so close to us such as Jersey and New York who were not as lucky. Hopefully we can all work together to help each other. Thank you Deals We Like! I didn’t realize you lived in NYC, for some reason I thought you lived in Washington DC. I’m glad to hear that your family fared well throughout the storm!
