Where to shop to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief from

In the light of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, our hearts go out to everyone affected. While many were gratefully and fortunately unscathed, many others are still in desperate need of food, water and other forms of relief. Here at Babble these folks are in our hearts and on our minds, so we wanted to spread the love by sharing 12 online shops who are donating a portion of sales to organizations committed to aiding Hurricane Sandy victims. You can also check out this site for a list of organizations aiding the cause or pop over to Charity Navigator to find a great organization you’d love to help out in this moment of need.
