As I sit here this morning I can't help but feel dread for everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy's effects on the east coast and my thoughts and prayers go out to all.
As most of you know I am from NJ and my hometown is in ruins. As I sit here and watch the horror on TV unfold, while all my memories fade in to the ocean. A place where my family and friends still reside.
I can't help but think the next time I go home, won't be the same. What will be there what wont? The footage on TV and the pictures on the internet dont do any justice for the people who are there living it.
New Jersey and New York are still in the dark. With no electric, heat, or water, and this could last till late November. With death close to the 100's and still climbing. People are starting fires on there lawns just to keep warm!
I try to give back as much as I can. Cancer society's, non profit organization, etc. Although I am not in NJ right now to help. I want to help!
I will be donating to the Red Cross, The Salvation Army and The Human Society, and I encourage you to donate as well. You can do this at JamieEstelle.com if you would like to help in anyway. Together we can help!
Here are some pictures of the area I am from.
