Vanguard Foundation to Sponsor People's Hurricane Fund

First, we have received a tremendous response to our call for help and we are greatly energized and excited by the growing network of activists out there who are willing to lend a hand at a moment's notice. Thanks so much for everything everyone is doing and has offered to do- it is truly amazing.

In light of the generous volume of responses, we have moved to set up an account with the Vanguard Public Foundation, which has a long history of social justice philanthropy and also has the staff capacity to manage this level of effort.
