Help is on the Way

If you find yourself living in a shoe box of an apartment in the city, chances are you may have experienced maintenance issues in your building. Usually a result of the supers’ lack of care. But  sometimes, without provocation an emergency can change a person’s living situation forever. Sadly, enough the story doesn’t end there.

If a person experiences a fire, flood or other natural disaster and are rendered homeless a donation based program known as the Red Cross comes in to pick up the shattered pieces. They are limited in what they can do but offer many resources for those who have lost everything. Registration upon arrival allows a survivor to receive medical treatment, housing for a few days, and a small stipend which is placed on a prepaid debit card.

The Red Cross is volunteer based and works completely off of the graciousness of others. From the outreach team that are dispatched as soon as they are alerted about the disaster to the  advisor  who helps contact legal offices on behalf of the survivors are all volunteer participants. Even the money used in order to operate this program is donated and granted.

The Red Cross is a not for profit organization that has several locations, including one in Brooklyn at 4th Avenue in Park Slope. redcross

Im loving the snow
The very idea of it
Why has it waited so long to bless ur with its presence
I guess Global Warming is to blame
The emissions in the air from cars, factories and the burning of fossil fuels
I suggest the world become more alert about Global Warming
We are not exempt from extinction!


Al Gore was silenced
Help me help you
What shld we do
