The destruction wrought by Hurricane Sandy has left many families, communities and businesses on the East Coast struggling to rebuild their homes and neighborhoods in the midst of the busy holiday season for families and businesses. As part of our ongoing commitment to our valued merchants, customers and partners, eBay Giving Works and PayPal have committed to financial donations. With so many impacted by Sandy, the Magento team also wanted to do our part to help with the rebuilding effort.
Magento territory sales manager Chris Simmons, a NJ native, wanted to help his fellow New Jersey Tech Meetup members around their healhoboken.org initiative by working with the Magento team to donate a Magento Enterprise Edition eCommerce platform license. With over 50% of Hoboken flooded by Hurricane Sandy impacting schools, homes and hospitals we couldn’t’ be more honored to lend a hand in supporting fundraising to rebuild Hoboken. In addition to the Magento effort, our integration partner Red Stage Networks has pledged to donate development efforts to help build out the site. Healhoboken.org has raised over $26,000 to date and is over a quarter of the way to their goal of raising $100,000 to donate to the Hoboken Relief Fund. You can do your part in helping the cause by purchasing a t-shirt or hoodie online or making a donation of your choice
