DIY Fundraising Post-Irene Given a Spotlight

The New York Times gave a shout out to a post-Irene bright spot: DIY efforts, often organized through social media, to fund raise for hard-hit Upstate communities. While Upstaters are being forced to wait for the federal government to step in with more aid, locals are organizing everything from pig roasts to fancy-dress hikes to help their neighbors. Yeah for ingenuity!
