There's still time to donate

Hurricane Sandy left my home in the Philadelphia suburbs without power for a couple of days, but damage wasn't extensive, power returned and within a few days my house was back to normal.

This is not how it is for other people along the east-coast.

As I stated in an earlier blog post, many towns are without power, and many individuals are without their homes. They need your help. 

If you scroll through this blog, you'll see a lot of different stories from different college students explaining how Hurricane Sandy directly affected them or somebody close to them.  I'm sure you yourself may know somebody who was greatly affected by the devastating storm.

This campaign is for more than just the people we know. It's about more than just donating to a good cause to say you did. It's more than just a social experiment testing the power of social media.

It's about helping out those in their greatest time of need. 

This campaign started as a challenge from a daring professor, but transformed into an outlet for individuals to help those they don't even know.

While we may have passed our goal, and we are thankful for all of the donations from those individuals, there is still time to donate.

There are still people who need your help.

#COMM30Sandy is an online class project for the Media & Society class at Lehigh University, taught by professor Jeremy Littau. You can donate to our campaign at this link, and for more infomation you can email Prof. Littau at jeremy.littau(at)
