This year is the first anniversary of Hurricane Sandy. The American Red Cross raised over $300 million for relief of its victims. But, now, a year later, much of the money has not been spent at all. $30 million remains in Red Cross bank accounts and tens of millions more has been diverted to other uses.
The NY State Attorney General sued the Red Cross to demand a reform in how they earmark donations. But the changes to which the Red Cross agreed in response to the suit will come too late for Sandy victims.
25,000 victims remain out of their homes. And they are running out of hope.
Please sign this petition to the American Red Cross to ask that they give the money they received to the victims who need it.
