A Few Ways to Help

Posted by


Since a few of you have been (very kindly) asking how to help, I wanted to tell you about two important initiatives.

First, as I'm sure you all know, the New York City Marathon was cancelled this Sunday. It's one of my favorite events every year and always an incredible way to bring the city together. To help, the marathon and Road Runners have teamed up with fundraising platform CrowdRise to support local relief efforts.

You can find out more and donate here.

And here at Martha Stewart, we're also teaming up with Crowdrise for our Thanks for Giving initiative to fight hunger. We'll donate $25,000 to the organization that raises the most money by November 27th, $15,000 to second place, and $10,000 to third. (There's nothing like a little healthy competition, right?).

See the charities and join the fight here.

  • Dear Kevin,

    Thank you for your suggestions this morning. As an interior designer myself I have spent the last week thinking about how I can help those who lost their homes to the devastating hurricane. I would love to figure out a way to somehow contribute my skills as a designer to help rebuild their homes. Rebuilding homes is rebuilding lives. I thought about contacting a TV show like HGTV to see if they have any interest in creating a type of program to help with such a mission. As designers we have access to so many great resources and I wondered if retail furnishing lines like Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Crate and Barrel and Wisteria, to name a few, could help with donating discontinued or lightly damaged furnishings. In the big picture it would cost them little and it would help those people in need tremendously.

    I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

    Best regards,

    Michael Hampton
