MaxiAids Web-A-Thon Supports Red Cross and Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

This week, we at MaxiAids felt the power of Hurricane Sandy, but were fortunate enough to come through it safely. However, many people have lost entire homes and some families are dealing with the worst imaginable scenario - loss of life. First and foremost, at this difficult time our thoughts are with all of those impacted by this historic storm.

With that in mind, MaxiAids Products for Independent Living is hosting a 24-hour web-a-thon on Tuesday, November 6, 2012, during which 10% of the proceeds from web purchases made all day long (from 12:00am to 11:59pm) will be donated to The American Red Cross.

The Red Cross responds to approximately 70,000 disasters in the United States every year, ranging from home fires to hurricanes to earthquakes. In these events, the Red Cross provides shelter, food, health and mental health services to help families and entire communities get back on their feet.

Currently in the New York metropolitan area, many people see their streets still inaccessible due to fallen trees and power lines, and hundreds of thousands of homes remain without electricity a week after the hurricane. While some families are staying with friends, relatives or in temporary housing, countless others struggle to stay warm in unheated homes amid freezing temperatures, with a nor’easter forecast in the next couple of days.

This web-a-thon is a great opportunity for MaxiAids and its many loyal customers to team up and contribute to a truly worthy cause, and help our friends and neighbors who are facing hardships in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

MaxiAids is fully stocked and ready to send our assistive products wherever they are needed!
