It's hard to know what YOU can do to help in a disaster such as this, a friend of mine pulled together this great list of links and where you can donate for Hurricane Relief, volunteer information and information for some specific areas. Choose them all or choose what works for you (obviously there are many more but these are a good start!)...

Please let your readers know about an event coming up in Cranston, RI that will raise money for NJ Sandy Victims.

Local photographer, Janet Moscarello, co-owner and co-founder of boutique photography studio JL Photografia (http://www.jlphotografia.com/) has been heartbroken by the massive destruction caused by Sandy in her family's home state of New Jersey. Moved by the devastation along the Jersey Shore and boardwalk - places that hold such wonderful childhood images for her, Janet has been inspired to raise money for those affected using her talents behind the lens.

On December 8th and 9th from 11am to 2pm Janet will team up with Lisa Frechette Carlow, Owner of Lisa Frechette Photography (http://www.lisafrechette.com/) to host photo sessions at Roger Williams Park in Cranston, RI. Couples, families, singles - even pets can be photographed during a twenty minute mini-session for just $75. Patrons will receive 10 edited images after completion of the session, a $150 value.

Janet and Lisa will be donating all session fees to RebuildRecover - a non-profit organization based in Red Bank, NJ (www.rebuildrecover.org). RebuildRecover was founded in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy by local residents. As such, the organization pledges 100% of their fundraising efforts directly to providing support to residents and businesses in the areas most affected by Hurricane Sandy. Donations provide food, clothing and shelter for displaced persons as well as financing demolition and purchasing building supplies for families and businesses as they rebuild and recover.

To schedule an appointment or speak with Janet, please call (401)305.2505 or email east@jlphotografia.com or contact Lisa at 401-828-0322 or email lfrechettephoto@gmail.com.
