Surviving Sandy is a 300-page book focused on the stories of heroism, duty, survival, selflessness, plus incredible photographs. The proceeds of this book will be donated to a number of charities focused on the ongoing recovery including New York Says Thank You.
Started in 2003 at the suggestion of a 5-year-old boy, The New York Says Thank You Foundation has grown into one of the Nation’s leading organizations to transform the 9/11 Anniversary into a positive, hands-on platform for national volunteer service.
Each year on the 9/11 Anniversary, The New York Says Thank You Foundation sends hundreds of volunteers from New York along with disaster survivors from around the country to help rebuild communities around the United States recovering from disaster. It’s our way of saying “Thank You” for all the love and support Americans from across the country extended to New Yorkers in the days, weeks, and months following September 11.
The secret to our growing “Pay It Forward” movement is very simple: What we do is about 9/12.
Welcome to The New York Says Thank You Foundation.
