Hey Fellow Forrsters!!
My name is Chanelle Henry, Founder of CHD Collective (an interactive agency), and I am writing here to be apart of the initiative to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. As you know, Hurricane Sandy did a ton of damage in the NYC/NJ/CT area. We still need help with donations, good wishes, and the spreading of love.
Last week, one of our contractors, Felipe Edoardo (http://edoardo.me/) thought of an idea of putting together a little initiative with few fellow designers called Rescue by Design - United for Sandy (www.unitedforsandy.org).
We developed a plan to set aside half of our freelance/contract/consultant payments in the period from Nov. 15 to Dec. 15 (can be flex if necessary) and give that amount as a tax-deductible donation to the Red Cross towards Sandy relief.
We wanted your help. Perhaps you can put an ad on your site and encourage designers (and developers, photographers, etc...) to be apart of the initiative, or perhaps you would like to donate a portion of your profits to the effort. Whatever it is, we'd like for you to be apart see to try to help out with the initiative. Please go to www.unitedforsandy.com, and you can sign up at the bottom to be apart or to ask any questions or share any ideas, tips or better ways to spread the word would be deeply appreciated.
Thank you so much, and we look forward to your contribution!
