Episode 199

October 29, 2012 Hurricane Sandy destroyed the eastern seaboard creating $60 billion worth of damage. Three years later the monies collected have all been spent and still thousands of homeowners who have not been returned to their houses. Volunteers are the main force moving forward to accomplish this task. In the past year Traveltelevision highlighted the efforts of volunteers through our Jersey Shore Volunteer Challenge Project.

We wish to thank all of our volunteers as well as the many volunteers across the country who have come together to share their stories and to help bring closure to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. The volunteer stories of their efforts can be seen in this month episode of TravelTelevison

The Jersey Shore Volunteer Challenge was an experiment with the use of social media to encourage increased volunteerism. Our thanks to the groups and individual participants of this project

Please take a moment to look at our video and share with your friends to encourage others to help the thousands who still remain homeless and who are in need of volunteer support to take them home from the Hurricane Sandy disruption.
