New kids' CD benefits Hurricane Sandy relief efforts
Support Hurricane Sandy relief with Neighbor to Neighbor, a new album featuring Dan Zanes, Pete Seeger and other kids’ music all-stars.

When Hurricane Sandy ravaged the New York area in October 2012, children's performer Laurie McIntosh (known to her pint-size fans as Story Laurie) traveled from her Hudson Valley home to Far Rockaway to lend a hand in the community. As she distributed her collection of baked goods, warm clothes and musical instruments to Queens residents in need, McIntosh became acquainted with two local grassroots organizations that were particularly effective in aiding the Hurricane Sandy relief effort: Camp Bulldog of Lindenhurst, NY, and The Action Center of Far Rockaway. After her trip, McIntosh convinced a few well-known troubadours—including Pete Seeger and Tom Chapin—as well as a slew of kindie heavyweights (think Dan Zanes, Gustafer Yellowgold and Dog on Fleas) to contribute songs to a Hurricane Sandy relief CD. Families can purchase individual folk and indie tunes like "This Little Light of Mine" and "Sing Me the Story of Your Day" or download the entire 16-track album on BandCamp.com or CDBaby.com. With 100 percent of proceeds benefitting The Action Center and Camp Bulldog, we can't think of a better definition of feel-good music.
