Sponsor a Hurricane Sandy Family

Due to the devastating loss the East Coast has experienced from Hurricane Sandy, it was time to put my blogging network to a good cause. As I was sitting in the comfort of my home, people were losing everything to this storm. It’s hard to sit by and not at least try to help.

Instead of hosting a huge sponsored giveaway to gain some followers, my heart knew this was not with keeping the Holiday Spirit. Instead, I’m reaching out to get sponsors to send items to a family who has lost everything. There is a family from Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey who has lost it all: Danny, Nicole, and  7 year old daughter Victoria.

There are many ways YOU can help! Gift Cards: Target, Walmart, Shutterfly, Amazon, Paypal, even in small amounts, $5 can make a big difference. You can send gifts, homemade gifts, if you have an Etsy shop and have something you can send, that would be great, toys for their daughter, anything for the home: candles, personal hygiene products, old cameras, or picture frames. Honestly, anything goes. Even a card to say you care! They’ve lost everything.

Item’s can be sent directly to them, I am only trying to raise some awareness and help a family in need. If you are interested in helping, please contact me at IrishItalianBlessings at gmail dot com.

If you know someone or a company who can help or can donate, please pass along the information and have them contact me.

As a thank you to all the bloggers who are willing to participate:

  • I will offer 1 month of large advertising on my blog -AND- 
  • Each Participating Blogger will be entered to win a prize pack of goodies from me: including Essie Polish, iPhone Cases, Lush and more!

I understand many people have different ways of helping in times of need and thank you for even considering the opportunity to help. If you can’t help with a contribution, help by sharing this drive with your social  network to help spread the word.

Thank you all!


  1. You are so kind to help out. I have shared via my social media outlets and will continue to do so. My thoughts go out to this family.

  7. Awesome way to get involved. Is this a family you know personally? I generally don’t donate directly to people unless I know them or have someone in common with them. So many people out there trying to take advantage….kwim?

  8. how amazing – you have a big heart!!

  9. I am SO horrible at checking my email that I just saw the email you sent about this now. Let me know how I can help out. I could probably sent out a giftcard or a paypal donation of some sort.
