Thousands of homes destroyed. Millions of lives changed forever. The crazy part? Hurricane Sandy was almost one year ago and lives are still being affected today.

John Gelalia's story is especially powerful. The retired New Jersey firefighter saved countless lives and homes after Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on his town and the East Coast. Although John's own home was thankfully sustained, everything in it was destroyed: his furniture, all of his belongings, flooring, electricity; everything. John was living in FEMA house shelters up until March when, without anywhere else to go, he returned to his completely gutted house where he has been living since.

How KIND and Waves for Water are making a difference:

Knowing all he did for those during the super storm and the unfortunate challenges he is facing today, KIND felt it necessary to take action and will be partnering with Waves for Water to complete a $10,000 renovation on John's home.

While $10,000 will help, we are looking to the community to help further our initiative through one of the following steps:
