Happy National Philanthropy Day! We at EPIP hope you take today to reflect on philanthropy, both professional and personal.
The devastation left in the wake of Super Storm Sandy gives us a particular opportunity to be philanthropic. We want to hear your stories about how you are providing support to those affected by the storm. Tweet us at @EPIPnational or post on our Facebook wall http://on.fb.me/UCLQEN about stories of your philanthropy that helps those in need.
Those looking to ideas to get involved can check out the following resources:

RHI believes that social change to overcome systemic inequities begins with empowered youth. We envision a Red Hook where all young people can pursue their dreams and grow into independent adults who contribute to their families and community.
