    One of Our Own Needs Hurricane Sandy Help!
    The last text I rec'd from Vinny yesterday around noon was "power gone/water coming up"

    Last text I got from Loxly at 10pm was "Our house is fuukkeedd"

    I logged into Facebook today, and there's this viral helper piece being shared:

    Deb & Vinny

    When Sandy hit New York on Monday, it flooded Vinny and Debs house to the ceiling. They have lost nearly everything.

    This ChipIn widget deposits directly to their paypal account. Please donate whatever amount you are comfortable with giving to help Debbie and Vinny get back on their feetevery little bit helps.

    As they assess their losses over the next couple of days, Ill be sure to update this post with additional information from them.

    They've helped just about everyone in our industry become more successful. So if you can spare ever 5 bucks, I'm sure it will help.

    All My Best,
    Billy

    PS: Thanks to Chuck for letting me post this

    What a terrific opportunity to give back to a couple who have given much to those of us who've been working at affiliate marketing. God bless them -- and all who are struggling in the aftermath of this horrible disaster!

    That's really sad Am glad they both (and assuming the kitties too) are safe, tho. Don't know if either of them have family in the area as well but hope everyone is safe. Thoughts and prayers are with both of them.

    As of this morning - before the nor'easter hits - they have power, no gas, "camping".

    and of all the things in this pic, it's weird that "Finding Nemo" survived intact

    FYI, the kitties are doing well too. They are slowly getting their place emptied out and then cleaned. The water that flowed in was very dirty, containing oil and other materials too, so it was an extra bad mess. Deb & Vinny have a lot of spirit (would we expect anything less?) and are just getting things done!
