Big Business Commits Aid To Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

November 1st, 2012

As Hurricane Sandy continues to wreak havoc up and down the Eastern seaboard, many big businesses have stepped up and immediately pledged relief efforts.

As many of you know, I am a big supporter, believer and proponent of the private sector’s investment to support and help communities. I salute these companies for cutting through the red tape and jumping to raise their hand to say, “I will help” in the early hours.

It’s an important measure and hopefully just the beginning of what we’ll see in the days, weeks and months to come.

(If you know of any additional ones, please leave them in the comments)

Here is a list of the first commitments to be widely promoted and shared:
