Dear CafeMoms -
Before I get back to answering all your wonderful questions, I wanted to take a moment to say that Barack and my thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy. Barack has been working with state and local authorities to cut through red tape and assist with whatever resources and support they need. He’s made this storm his priority and as always, he will do whatever it takes to make sure that the American people are safe and secure.
Moments like this remind us that in times of crisis, we always pull together as one American family. And I know that we will all do everything we can to help our fellow citizens as they weather this storm and the recovery. If you’re looking for a way to support storm relief efforts, please consider donating to the American Red Cross at http://my.barackobama.com/Red-Cross
Be safe and well,
A note from CafeMom: First Lady, Michelle Obama is answering questions from CafeMom members this week (extended due to our downtime because of Hurricane Sandy!).
See all her responses here, and don't miss her latest post about the importance of getting out the vote.
