Hey dudes and dudettes, Vinnie the Christ here. Just wanted to take some time out of my busy day chasing broads and slugging down Wild Turkey Rye to let my brothers and sisters know about an important cause. As y'all know, the East Coast got pounded by a bitch named Sandy a few weeks back and there's still people struggling with recovery. There's lots of organizations out there that can help, including the American Red Cross and others.
Since joining the Twitsophere, Vinnie came across Theo Rossi's Twitter feed, @TheoRossi. Theo's a real cool brother who plays Juice on Sons of Anarchy and he's also from Staten Island, which got pummeled by the storm. Not content to just sit back while his neighbors were struggling, Theo started coordinating efforts to help people out and eventually started a charity to raise money to aid in those efforts.
You can check out his website at StatenStrong. You can donate directly and/or buy some pretty cool swag to help the cause. I just plunked down 25 bones to get a kickass t-shirt to help spread the word. If you want to volunteer or if you're in need of assistance, there are links on this site to help you out. If you've got some extra cashola and want to donate to a good cause where the money will end up right in the hands of the people making a difference, then go check this site out. StatenStrong is also on Facebook and they have their own Twitter feed, @StatenStrong. I know we're all struggling to a degree, but help out if you can.
Big love to all my East Coast dudes & dudettes! Stay strong! If there's any other organizations helping out, Vinnie'll be happy to give them a shout out. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a tweet at @VinnieTheChrist.
