Occupy Sandy Uses Amazon Wedding Registry To Collect Donations


 

Occupy Sandy Relief NYC, one of the various grass roots community organizations that has popped up in New York City to help hurricane victims in the area, is using Amazon’s wedding registry tool to coordinate donations.

Items on the registry include: blankets, flashlights, coolers, garbage bags, diapers, socks, generators, and cleaning supplies. The team of organizers explains in the registry that all of the items will be shipped to the Occupy Sandy relief outpost at the Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew in Clinton Hill.

Here is more from the registry: “We are Brooklyn residents and are in touch with the Occupy Sandy team who will receive the shipped items and organize daily deliveries to priority response areas. We are the updating the registry as we get updates on what is needed most in affected areas. PLEASE pay for the most expedited shipping – these items are needed ASAP! PLEASE NOTE the registry does not update automatically. Your purchases may not be reflected for 24-48 hours, but you will receive a purchase confirmation right away.”
