Occupy Sandy's Wedding Registry Needs Your Support

Finding creative solutions for seemingly insurmountable problems is one of the things that Occupy does best, and Occupy Sandy has already taken that challenge and given it their own stamp. In the quest to obtain needed supplies for the ongoing storm recovery effort, the Occupy Sandy team has found a cool new use for the Amazon Gift Registry. This practical but verging-on-obnoxious tool for direct gifting isn't just for brides coveting $90 sugar bowls. Those eager to donate to the victims of Hurricane Sandy can login and choose sorely needed items and ship them directly to the Occupy Sandy relief outpost at the Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew in Brooklyn. Once they arrive, volunteers will organize daily deliveries to priority response locations like Staten Island and the Rockaways. The team is in the process of updating the registry with what is needed most for those affected areas. Items range greatly in price from packages of diapers to portable gas-powered generators. Local volunteers with more time than money still can, and should, help any way they can through http://interoccupy.net/occupysandy. But for those of us outside of the storm-ravaged locales, a unique opportunity to help our fellow humans is just a click away. (I've got my eye on the 18-Inch Annihilator Utility and Wrecking Bar.)
