Supporting the Recovery Efforts for Hurricane Sandy


Our hearts go out to all of the people who are affected by the hurricane, as many people have lost their lives, their homes, or are suffering without power or water. We wanted to show our support for the relief efforts, as we know the recovery is going to require a lot of resources and a lot of patience from everyone.

We listened closely to our seller community who asked us to create a way for them to sell designs that would support the relief efforts. Sellers can create products for this special cause and tag them “hurricanesupport” so that we can donate the proceeds to recovery efforts. We’d like to encourage sellers with existing products or who are creating new ones to help show Zazzle’s collective support for the recovery efforts. All of the gross profits (including commissions that would ordinarily be paid to sellers) from sales of products that are tagged “hurricanesupport” will be donated directly to nonprofit organizations who are funding the relief and recovery efforts.

We’re asking our sellers and the Zazzle community to help make a difference during this difficult time. We also want to encourage everyone to contribute what they can – supplies, time, or money – to help the recovery that is impacting so many people and their families.

    Mindgoop will be adding our support by making various products – only just got the internet back on today after being without it for nearly three weeks after our landlord cut through the internet cable! Darknirv and I are very glad that Zazzle has set up a way for us to help out those affected by this tragedy.

    CrayzeeStuff is also supporting the recovery efforts

  24. Gale Says:

    It looks like if you want to have it listed on Zazzle’s Hurrican Sandy page then hurricanesupport needs to be in the top ten tags. True? If so than that might be a good thing to mention on this post. :-)

  25. Jane Tellam (Jinx) (@JinxTellam) Says:

    Donated this canvas print which is also available on various products. Hope it helps.

    I have added one as well.

  31. denise beverly db visual arts Says:

    Second version of shirt Beaten and bruised but not defeated.

  32. Gale Says:

    Question: I notice when I change the domain to something other than a .com on Hurricane donations page the info about the items benefiting Hurricane Sandy does not show up. I’m assuming profits still go to charity on these items even if bought through an non-US domain, but I thought I better ask.

    Also, it seems like the items don’t show up on that page if you don’t put them in the first ten. But the profits still go to charity right, even if it’s not in the first ten?

  33. cmstein Says:

    I love that we can help the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts with our designs and products. I have created a few and will do a some more. I live in the New York area and I come in contact with people who were directly affected by this disaster. Their stories break your heart. I am glad I can help with my designs, Here is one of them

  34. Gale Says:

    I added ALL my gift boxes several days ago. Still not showing up in the hurricane page…even when I narrow it down to just boxes (and there’s not even a full page of boxes there). Most of my boxes have the tag in the top 10. Other products that I added about the same time are showing up in the hurricane relief page. Just wondering why not the boxes?

  35. Ricaso Says:

    Ricaso have added these Christmas Santa hat photo template stamps to our hurricane Sandy support products,

    also available .. our USA heart products

    along with apparel

    I live in NYC, and am near Ground Zero of the relief efforts. Wondering what charities the monies are going to? Would really like to know; as someone who knows people directly affected by the storm, I am acutely aware that some charities are better than others. The Red Cross, for instance, has actually come under a great deal of fire on the ground for being ill-prepared, somewhat inept, and never reaching certain neighborhoods. Thanks!
