"The People Are So Bloody Friendly" [Video]

By Kacy Faulconer |

When the fire stations closed due to power outages and FEMA and the National Guard could not get out to the Rockaways, you’ll never guess who showed up to help.

While many people are licking their wounds after an extremely polarizing election that demonstrated just how nasty people can be, there is still a great deal of hardship and suffering going on in the wake of hurricane Sandy. And people are jumping in with their sleeves rolled up to help. If you’re sick of the political name calling, if your extreme Facebook friends have given you an ulcer, if you’re ready to see something good and useful that celebrates the truly American values of camaraderie and community building, I encourage you to watch this video bout the yellow-vested Mormon volunteers who are showing up by the busload to pitch in and help clean up after the hurricane.

Those Mormons–They’ll do anything to get out of going to church! Click through  to see how a little help can mean a lot in the face of devastation.



Can you believe how much work there is still left to do? Please donate now. Lady Gaga gave a million dollars to the cause. What? You don’t have a cool million laying around? Every little bit helps.
