Where: All five boroughs, Long Island, and New Jersey
What/Why:
If you’re part of the 8,244,910 NYC and New Jersey residents who were directly affected or know someone who was disrupted by the wrath of Superstorm Sandy, you’re probably still feeling the effects of her unsolicited tour through the Tri-State Area. It’s going to take a hot second to fully recover, but like the resilient bunch that we are, let’s get a head start by taking the Yelp Builds Back Pledge and vowing to support local merchants whenever possible and volunteer our efforts to rebuild.Yelp is challenging communities across New York and New Jersey to keep their hard-earned dough close to home. We’re not drinking the “big box” and “mega mall” Haterade, but in light of recent events, let’s shift our focus toward spending money at the stores who needs our help most right now. By taking the pledge (via clicking the “I’m in” button at the top right of this event listing), you’re agreeing to make a hearty effort to support these great local businesses throughout the remainder of November and December (especially those ravaged by Superstorm Sandy) and encouraging your friends, family, and colleagues to do the same.In addition to supporting local merchants, there are charity organizations across the region that need volunteers to help get communities back on their feet. If you find yourself with some extra time, we encourage you to lend a hand. You can find a list of great local charities at the bottom of this post.As 2012 comes to a close, let’s show the world what we’re made of. Even purchasing just one item locally, or donating time or money makes a big difference in our community… so take the pledge to Build Back, and Yelp On!Read below for an itinerary of events and volunteer efforts going on around the region from now until the end of 2012.
