As you know, our friends up on the East coast were hit real hard by Hurricane Sandy and some lost every damn thing they had. I'd like to encourage each of my readers to take this time to stop for a moment and send a little monetary hug to those people. If you're in the area, jackets and warm clothing are needed real bad. And if you aren't, there's a few ways you can help still.
One of the easiest ways I've found is donating through iTunes, (skip buying an album, look at it this way) and you can give various amounts, from $5 to $200 and 100% of your donation will go directly to Red Cross. Or, if you prefer, drop by http://www.redcross.org/charitable-donations and give directly. You can even have recurring donations if you want.
To donate through iTunes, here's the direct link that will prompt your iTunes to pop up.
To those affected by Hurricane Sandy, we at Crooked Fang are thinking of you. Stay safe, dry and warm.
