From helping impacted communities, to offering a hand for colleagues in need, when Super Storm Sandy hit, AOL employees responded immediately. Employees packed over two tractor trailers worth of food, water and supplies in Dulles, VA, and Baltimore and donations were sent to ravaged areas in New Jersey and Long Island. When the power went out, AOL connected New Yorker's with one another by partnering with Boingo to provide free wifi throughout Manhattan and north of 34th street. Less than 48 hours after the storm, an internal message board was created where employees could offer resources, including food, water, and electricity, or ask for help. Within hours the message board was flooded with comments such as "I live Uptown and have power, water and everything is normal up here. Email me if you need a place to go. "

AOL continues it's relief efforts, as thousands are still without power. is featuring an ongoing Red Cross module encouraging users to click-to-donate. So far, the module alone has raised over $35K and counting. To make a donation visit:
