Jack Johnson Mailing List

After years of touring and surfing along the East Coast, I have made so many great friends. It is heartbreaking to see the images and hear their stories. I just made donations to help recover and relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy. Below is a list of groups you can support. If you can't donate money, you can donate food, supplies or your time. Our East Coast family, friends and neighbors need our help.

Aloha- Jack

In the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, Jack Johnson announces his support of immediate relief and long-term recovery efforts in the affected areas. Throughout the East Coast, tens of thousands are displaced from their homes and over 600,000 people are still without power as the relief efforts continue.

Jack has donated to six organizations working hard to provide food, water, medicine and on-the-ground support for thousands affected by the largest Atlantic hurricane on record. Donations will be distributed among the Food Bank for New York City, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Save the Children, Waves for Water, GlobalGiving and Direct Relief International. These organizations are responding quickly to the immediate needs of those affected but are still in need of funds to support their vital relief and ongoing recovery efforts.

The announcement of Jack’s donation is timely, as a strong winter storm hit the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast this week, bringing heavy rain, high winds, and snow, affecting areas already impacted by Hurricane Sandy and complicating recovery efforts. To help combat the cold weather, Jack is also shipping 3000 warm sweatshirts and thermal shirts from his merchandise warehouse to the non-profit organization
Waves for Water
for distribution to coastal communities on the East Coast.

Jack is encouraging others to support relief & recovery efforts in any way they can. He is asking people to consider donating food, supplies, time or money to organizations working on the ground in local communities.

See below for a list of organizations to support.
