November 2, 2012
- On Monday of this past week Hurricane Sandy made landfall in New Jersey. For me, the creator of WarcraftPets
, it hit close to home... quite literally.
Our house is located less than 5 miles inland off the southern coast of NJ. For 24 hours, my wife and I, our 3-week-old daughter and our many pets, hunkered down in the basement waiting as the storm slowly passed above. It was surreal. The house shook for hours on end. But we were lucky. When it finally passed, we suffered only minimal damage.
Sadly, the same can't be said for tens of thousands of people along the Eastern seaboard.
Places I've visited throughout my entire life were utterly decimated by the power of Sandy: Seaside Heights (pictured), Atlantic City, Point Pleasant, Long Beach Island, Wildwood, and so many other seaside towns and vacation spots.
In addition, portions of New York City, one of the greatest metropolitan centers on Earth, remain in shambles.
A Call for Help
You've seen the pictures. You've seen videos on YouTube. You've seen the news. The situation is grim. The time to help is NOW.
As the founder of this site, I'm calling on everyone who sees this post to donate something — whatever you can afford — to the American Red Cross
Support the Red Cross through WarcraftPets
At the end of next week, I'll be donating $250 to the American Red Cross on behalf of WarcraftPets. In addition to that amount, we'll donate 50% of every donation we receive
over the next week.
Remember, when you donate $30 or more to support our site
, you'll become a Site MVP
and really stand out
. In turn, we'll donate 50% of your donation and all donations we receive through November 10th
to the American Red Cross to support their ongoing disaster relief efforts.
Our thoughts and well-wishes go out to everyone affected by this national tragedy. May brighter skies prevail in the weeks and months ahead.
