Aidmatrix is responding to Hurricane Sandy in partnership with the State offices of Emergency Management and the State VOADs (voluntary organizations active in disaster) who are currently assessing the situation. In support of this effort, we are working with Microsoft’s Disaster Response team to help get the word out on what is needed in the region.
As needs are relayed through the National Donations Management Network (www.ndmn.us) ,of which each State impacted is a member, those needs and stories from the ground are then passed and published through Microsoft’s online properties to reach even more potential donors.
