The dolls and one of their new pony allies survey the damage done to Dollotti Park in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. All of the dolls in the Occupy the Dollhouse movement are safe and sound. However they are actively trying to raise awareness of those living in New York and New Jersey whose lives have been impacted by both Hurricane Sandy and the Nor’easter that struck the same areas one week alter. Here is how you can help the victims of these twin storms rebuild their lives.
If you are able to volunteer directly, Occupy Wall Street has started an Occupy Sandy program which, according to this Slate.com article, has even outperformed the American Red Cross in certain situations.
If you live too far away from the devastated areas, here are some organizations you can send money and any other material things that these groups may ask for.
Charity Navigator’s page on ethical charities (which is valuable to help weed out the scammers who are now out in full force raising money when little to none of the funds raised will really go to the people impacted by Hurricane Sandy).
The Nation’s page on How to Help the Victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Despite being evicted from Dollotti Park, the Occupy the Dollhouse activists decided to continue fighting for the 99%. They try to stop a bank foreclosure on a dollhouse after its owner was a victim of predatory lending by Dolly Bank.
Now through June 23 you’ll be able to see and purchase print versions of these photos at Artomatic 2012 in Crystal City, Virginia. The Occupy the Dollhouse exhibit is located on the 10th floor in room 166.
