I can only speak for myself here, but in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, it was easy to get all riled up about donating time and money to the endless number of people and places who desperately needed it. It was also easy, in the following two months, to let both of those resources naturally re-direct back towards my busy drinking and deli-over-spending schedule. Which is pretty shameful, considering that the Brooklyn Recovery Fund is still taking donations, Occupy Sandy is still hard at work, and a lot of recovery is still left to be done. In 2013, I will not be a selfish dick.
