Good morning all. We were busy bees last night. We emptied our inbox, gave a few more interviews and set up a Twitter account (thanks to Jay) so that all information is getting distributed effectively. Please follow us @vtresponse.
We have 3 lofty goals for today that we’d like to share.
1. Get a comprehensive list of where to donate everything from food to diapers across the state. Look for this early afternoon to appear on the donations tab.
2. Get celebrities from and connected to Vermont to start raising some attention and encouraging people to help us get back on our feet.
3. Gather tons of information on where YOU can help this coming weekend.
So how can you help us do this? Keep sending in information as you hear it. Town meetings are huge, as are emails from groups to which you belong and information from senators/representatives. You can add it to the comments here, send it to @vtresponse on Twitter or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are offering help, please use our forums to connect with other people in your area. We have people needing rides, people needing other people and just a ton of info on how to connect with others like you who are ready to help.
With immense gratitude,
Email information on help needed, benefits or other information you'd like shared on the site.
