    Six months after Superstorm Sandy submerged the City by the Sea, Long Beach-based Powder Pouch LLC today announced Get Sandy Relief, Give Sandy Relief, a charitable program to support friends and neighbors as they work to rebuild their homes. Powder Pouch, the ingenious product that makes it a breeze to brush off beach sand, was created by a fifth-generation beach family in Long Beach, NY, who are committed to helping their community rebuild and get back to the business of enjoying the beach. As part of Get Sandy Relief, Give Sandy Relief, every Powder Pouch order in 2013 will trigger a donation to support families who are still struggling to overcome the devastation of Superstorm Sandy.

        • Superstorm Sandy


          from (add)ventures / Added

          In late October 2012, Hurricane Sandy pounded the East Coast with high winds, heavy rains and rough seas, leaving massive destruction in its wake. Many communities – especially in New York and New Jersey – were devastated by the superstorm, and are still trying to recover. Deeply connected to these communities through its CVS/pharmacy stores and charitable partnerships, CVS Caremark sprung into action to help communities that were overwhelmed by the storm. From setting up mobile pharmacies and temporary stores in order to provide access to important medications and supplies, to establishing a co-pay waiver program for customers in hard hit communities, to providing significant donations to the American Red Cross and local social service organizations – CVS Caremark has provided significant support to relief efforts since Hurricane Sandy hit. With this documentary-style treatment in mind for the video, the (add)ventures and CVS teams set forth to identify and plan video productions around the “real stories” of individuals, organizations and communities in New York and New Jersey that were greatly impacted by CVS Caremarkʼs support.

          • Speedy Support from FedEx for Sandy Relief Gets Big Thank You from Direct Relief


            from 3BL Media / Added

            Earlier this month I participated in the Partners for Quality Medical Donations (PQMD) conference sponsored by FedEx and hosted by Direct Relief. Direct Relief is one of four major relief organizations with which FedEx works year round. They are the only NGO licensed to distribute pharmaceuticals in all 50 US States. Pharmaceutical companies donate product to them and they use the products to help a network of more than a thousand health clinics serve disadvantaged people across the US. They also provide medicines and medical supplies to NGOs around the world. Though we work with Direct Relief year round, our relationship gets really busy in times of disaster. During the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy in the northeastern US, FedEx worked closely with Direct Relief to deliver critically needed medical supplies to people in need. The speed with which we were able to do this was unrivaled and so appreciated by both Direct Relief and the organizations they work with. While I was at the PQMD conference I had a side meeting with my friends at Direct Relief. They played a one and a half minute video for me at the beginning of the meeting basically saying “thank you” for the help we gave them immediately following Sandy. I wanted to make the video available on our blog so that my FedEx friends and other stakeholders can hear and see firsthand about our support for this wonderful relief organization. Enjoy!

              The Rockaway Dunes. By One Nature, 2013. Our project is a vision for a re-alignment of boardwalks to improve coastal resiliency and create a community based on respect for our coastal ecosystem. By tracing the history of our shifting coastline since the last ice age, we developed an approach that allows for strong dune barriers with room to retreat from the rising seas. www.onenaturellc.com MoMA PS1 EXPO 1: New York Rockaway Call for Ideas.
