With so many people in and around New York struggling to cope with the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Sandy we at Art-Rated have decided to dedicate this week’s post to the bigger picture.
We would like to share with you a list of resources and organizations that are working tirelessly to help out those in need, and we strongly encourage you to help out in any way you can.
Wishing you all the very best,
Jonathan Beer& Lily Koto Olive
