Through this, I hope to raise funds to those whose life’s were decimated due to Hurricane Sandy. The money raised through this, will be donated between New York & New Jersey in order to directly help the ones whom immediately need it most.

The charities I would like to give to are grass roots charities. The reason being is there is to much red tape involved. From my end of this as a Staten Islander, the community is the one helping the people survive right now all with minimal city/state/gov resources. It took three days to get the redcross out there. So the following charities get the money to where it needs to go ASAP.
In regards to the charities, for the Staten Island based one, I have decided that Staten Strong is a grass roots organization that was started by "Sons of Anarchy" star and native Staten Islander, Theo Rossi. He has been there since day one. They are helping those decimated immediately. http://www.crowdrise.com/statenstrong
For the Jersey based charity, as I am not actually there to see what the particular organizations are doing first hand as I am here in Staten Island. But, from doing a bit of research this seems to be the best option. Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund https://sandynjrelieffund.org
