Email from the organizer of the Thanksgiving Dinner :
I cannot thank you enough for contributing to our Thanksgiving at St. Mark’s!
Your work is so appreciated!!
Check out my blog, with pictures. Such a great day!
All the Best,
Huge thanks to all of you who helped make this such a successful project. In just four days, $2325 was raised and this took the organizers over their goal of $10,000. It feels good to be able to help make life a little better for those affected by Hurricane Sandy and to do it together as David’s fans.
Response from the organizers:

It’s hard to watch how people are still suffering tremendously after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy and not be moved to do something. There are areas of New York without power and not able to put a simple hot Thanksgiving dinner on the table.
We are aware that many of you have already given generously to the Red Cross relief fund. If you find that you are still able to do a bit more, we have an opportunity to help provide Thanksgiving dinner for some of those families. It is an effort linked directly to making life better for people in a community that has lost so much.
The charity is: https://www.wepay.com/donations/thanksgiving-for-sandy-survivors
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we are collecting funds to make a group donation from David’s fans. The friendships we have made and the music we have enjoyed are counted among the things we are thankful for.
Any amount contributed will be greatly appreciated by the people who will have a chance to celebrate the holiday with a warm meal. Time is short however, so please respond as soon as you can. We will accept donations until Tuesday November 20 in order to send the group’s contribution to the organizers on Wednesday.
For this project only, we have a different paypal address. It is important to mark your contribution as a gift so paypal does not take any fees from your gift. Please paypal your contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will post the names of those who donated on the Street Team website. if you have a preference as to which name, e.g. Twitter, full or just first name, or if you prefer to remain anonymous, please make a note of that with your paypal contribution.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com or DM @streeteam_dc on twitter.
Thank you for anything you are able to contribute to the relief effort.
The organizers of Thanksgiving Dinner for Sandy Victims were told that David Cook’s fans would be making a group donation and they were delighted. Here is their message to all of you:
“Wow! That is incredible!!
Thank you so much. We truly appreciate it and we thank you for helping us get our city back on its feet.
Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving,
