Charitable Giving. Tzu Chi


I finally got to Rockaway today to record the devastation. It was indeed awesome. I stopped in Broad Channel to see a crowd lined up and wanted to know what that was about. I spoke at length with both the policeman on the site and found a member of the Tzu Chi Foundation who spoke English. The policeman was outrageously impressed. This group was at Broad Channel to give charity. Every family was receiving a blanket and a debit card with $600 on it. All they had to do is prove they were residents of the area. (An ID and utility bill or such.) And no strings attached.
