Watch and Help a NJ Firefighter Come Back From Sandy

As we approach the one year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy slamming into our coastline and forever changing the way we look at our climate and the kindness of strangers, we are sharing the story of KIND and Waves for Water’s effort to rebuild a home for retired NJ firefighter John Gelalia. John, who saved countless lives and homes after Hurricane Sandy, was unfortunately one of the many left devastated from the superstorm. His home was thankfully sustained, but everything in it was destroyed: his furniture, all of his belongings, flooring, electricity; everything. John was living in FEMA house shelters up until March when, without anywhere else to go, he returned to his completely gutted house where he has been living since.

How KIND and Waves for Water are making a difference:

Knowing all he did for those during the super storm and the unfortunate challenges he is facing today, KIND felt it necessary to take action and will be partnering with Waves for Water to complete a $10,000 renovation on John’s home.
While $10,000 will help, we are looking to the community to help further our initiative through one of the following steps:
Donate directly to Waves for Water here to help further fund this project.
Watch and share this story about Jon Rose (and Waves for Water) contributions to the Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts. Watching this story will not only help shed light on this issue, but KIND will also donate an additional $1 to the renovation project for each view (up to $5,000).
