Manny P. here…
My unions have a special message to impart, helping certain victims of Superstorm Sandy:
PLEASE DONATE TODAY
The SAG Foundation, SAG Motion Picture Players Welfare Fund, and the AFTRA Foundation have come together to provide immediate support to active SAG-AFTRA members affected by Superstorm Sandy. Each has made a significant contribution to this fund; and with additional donations from members, a much greater impact can be made, and more members served.
Make your year-end tax-deductible donation today to support these efforts by visiting www.sagfoundation.org.
All grants for the relief fund are being administered to members through The Actors Fund by a confidential and streamlined application process. SAG-AFTRA members can apply for assistance by calling (212) 221-7300 ext. 119, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need help… ask. If you can help… give. We’re all in this together.
I’m thrilled to pass this plea for assistance along. I hope it helps my brethren in need.
