The destruction left behind by Hurricane Sandy has touched one of our own. Many of you know Andrea from The Cottage Market. She is a wonderful woman who has been a great friend to many of us here in blogland. She lives in New Jersey and has been hit very hard by this terrible storm. She and her husband, children and her beloved fur babies have been left without power for 2 days now. Food in the fridge has now gone bad. They have no means of heat. She can not work on her etsy store, all post offices are still closed therefore cannot mail past orders in a timely fashion. This disasters storm is hurting her and all her loved ones very hard physically, financially, and emotionally.But, lucky for her, that is where we come in. Now we have a chance to be the good friend to her that she has been to us and our blogs. It's time for us to be her angels and show her we are with her and how much we care. Even if you may not know Andrea and her family and would just like to be a blessing and help a family in need.

Every little bit helps.We are trying to raise enough money to help Andrea and her family to buy food, bottled water, a kerosene heater, kerosene, candles, just anything to will help them survive until they can restore power. Estimates say it could take as long as a week for the power to be turned back on and they have no where else to go.Free Pretty Things is calling on all who want to help this family in need.Andrea and her family have no clue we are doing this. She has no power. She has access to a cell phone but no way to charge it. She uses it only for emergencies and to assure friends and family they are hanging in there.
