Organizers Set Up Amazon ‘Wedding Registry’ for Sandy Victims
A group of organizers called “Occupy Sandy” have registered for a wedding on Amazon — except no one’s getting married.
The group of Brooklyn residents have registered for a wide array of supplies to be donated to victims of Hurricane Sandy, using Amazon’s tool for couples planning weddings. The group requests that gifts be shipped to Brooklyn’s Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew, from where the volunteers will distribute the items.
Instead of china patterns and guest towels, there are flashlights, generators and diapers. Similar to other registries, however, the items are divided into “love to have,” “like to have” and “nice to have.” The “couple” has opted not to have wrapping paper on the gifts.
Created by Occupy Sandy, a group of Occupy Wall Street members, the list is full of essentials.
