bring thanksgiving to far rockaway Operation SurfinBird

Some amazing friends in NY are spearheading a fundraiser to raise money to be able to serve Thanksgiving dinner to 500 plus victims of the Rockaway neighborhood.  Please take a minute to read about Operation SurfinBird and help them reach their goal.  Every little bit helps.  Spread the word.

Operation SurfinBird Thanks You for your Consideration. Find out more about them below:

The Rockaways have been devastated by hurricane Sandy. Many are without homes, those that have homes still have no power, and many have lost everything. As we now approach winter the damage to the Rockaways is still tremendous, the efforts to rebuild are becoming more challenging, and it will be a long slow process of recovery for this community. 
Operation SurfinBird is made up of New Yorkers, surfers, people that visit Rockaway, joined with people from all over the world that still care. We want to bring a nice community Thanksgiving meal to the Rockaways to show our support, show that we have not forgotten them, raise awareness that their needs are long-­‐lasting, and that the support of the world community will be there for them until the end. We hope to provide a Thanksgiving feast for at least 500 people living in the Rockaways whilst generating support and awareness for the long recovery road ahead. Any proceeds raised beyond what we need for Operation SurfinBird will go directly into rebuilding the community through free volunteer based construction, and home rehabilitation.
  • Help spread the word. We have started a Facebook site for people to connect with us, communicate how they would like to help, and share our mission with viral media throughout the internet.‐Surfinbird/338418792923837
