Hurricane Sandy Volunteers Special (VIDEO)
On the second anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, TravelTelevision released a collection of volunteer videos to recognize the efforts of those volunteers.
TravelTelevision is a unique TV program and website focusing on travel for a purpose programming. Volunteers from around the corner and across the globe are highlighted in monthly episodes with stories about volunteer experiences. TravelTelevision.org is a magazine-format series that covers the travel marketplace with news about special events, travel tips, and information. We interview travel writers, personalities, and other professionals who share their expertise and experience. Natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy create an urgent and ongoing need for volunteers.
This special episode will be available on the TravelTelevision website, traveltelevision.org, and is also on the TravelTelevision YouTube channel. This program airs throughout the month on over 50 stations and affiliate stations. On October 30 at 9 p.m. EST Free Speech TV airs it on all their platforms, including Direct TV Channel 348, Dish Network Channel 9415, and Roku.
October 30, 2014 is the first day after the second anniversary of the hurricane and the launch date for Jersey Shore Volunteers Challenge, an opportunity for volunteers traveling for a purpose, to use social media tools as they compete in teams. Each team will contribute toward the rebuilding of homes devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
The theme of TravelTelevision segments is “Travel For A Purpose,” the foundation of Humanity TV, a Maryland-based 501(c)(3) corporation encouraging volunteerism around the globe. Humanity TV connects volunteers with non-profits, corporations, and local, state, and federal governments by highlighting volunteer stories such as those working on Hurricane Sandy efforts.
