THE STORY:

I remember hearing about the horrors natural disasters have caused growing up, but sometimes when things take place far away from you, they can feel like stories. Tragic and upsetting, but in the whirl-wind of life where you live, in my case, New York City, it is easy to get carried away in the day to day.  However, it wasn't untill Sandy, a hurricane that hit a lot closer to home, that I began to think more about the impacts of natural disasters.  My school was flooded for a month, a close family friend lost their hoome, and people all around where without electricity.  But were all also very lucky, some of us were hardly hit at all, and the city quickly funded the repairs.  I began to wonder what if my school had not been flouded but destroyed?  What if we we did have the funds to repair all the damages? And lastly, why does it sometimes take our own experience before we can acknowledge the reality of other's lives, and how can we change this? When I was in search for a team to join for the NYC Half Marathon I was drawn to the Happy Hearts Fund.  The Happy Hearts Fund is a foundation that targets areas affected by natural disasters.  What is so great about the organization is that they strive to create a sustainable impact by building schools for children, after the initial emergency response. This creates opportunities and a sence of normalcy for kids healing from natural disasters.  They have been in places such as Haiti, Peru, Thailand, Mexico, and Inonesia. So I urge you to support the Happy Hearts Fund and learn more about them at http://www.happyheartsfund.org!
