The Cause

On October 29, 2012 flooding, fire and winds from Hurricane Sandy caused enormous destruction throughout the greater New York area. Despite immediate action from various support groups, thousands of people are still without power, shelter or heat. The charitable response has been enormous, but the need for relief remains great.

About RE/CREATE New York

RE/CREATE is a new charitable platform for creators to give back, launched as a non-for-profit division of CREATETHE GROUP. For the inaugural launch we are helping with the ongoing Hurricane Sandy relief and rebuilding efforts. We have rallied prominent creators to donate personal, one-of-a-kind items for auction. We have also asked our creators to curate a playlist for your entertainment. 100% of proceeds from your bids and donations will support the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts of New York Cares.

About New York Cares

New York Cares was founded in the late 1980s with the vision that we all have a role to play in making our city a better place. Today, it is the city's largest volunteer organization, running programs for 1,300 nonprofits, city agencies, and public schools. For more information, visit
