The Rainy Day Project Charity

The Nor'Easter Nick Rainy Day Project!

I grew up with very little. Through my high school years I slept on the floor of my mother’s bedroom because there wasn’t any additional space and we lived on welfare / food stamps and government assistance, so I get it. I lived it. I know what it looks like first hand to have very little to nothing.. 

Several years ago, before I started my company and worked for local news, I wanted to make a difference in the life of one family for the holidays. I didn’t have much, but knew there were others with much less. My husband and I bought a turkey, sides and dessert and gave it to one family in need.

Seeing the smile on the faces of the people we delivered the food to was absolutely priceless. I knew at that moment that this was something I needed to continue. The next year we did the same, but opened it up to the public. We raised $5,000 and converted all that money to $100 ShopRite gift cards. The following year we raised $8,000 and were able to help 80 families.
It’s always been my vision to create a non-profit and build a fund to help people out of tough spots not only through the holidays, but all year long.
So I was able to pull the trigger and start “NOREASTERNICK’S RAINY DAY PROJECT”. My goal is bigger than ever before and truly think it’s something we will be able to pull off. $25,000. With that money we could feed 250 families. It’s ambitious but given the level of support seen so far, I believe it’s obtainable.
At the end of the day no one will care about how many times I was right or wrong with the forecast, but about my community service. THAT is what I want to be remembered for above all else. I want to make a difference in any way I can.
I will be donating $1,000 for Thanksigivng and another $1,000 for Christmas. I would greatly appreciate if you have the means to, chip in. No amount is too small and it all goes to a good cause. Unlike many large non-profits, there is no middle man. $1 = $1. Your money goes directly to a family in its full value.
