A group of advertising and media companies collaborated to produce “12 Days of Relief” (www.12daysofrelief.com), a video captured in Rockaway, Queens, NY, and Seaside Heights, New Jersey, featuring real victims of Hurricane Sandy singing a variation on the classic holiday song “The 12 Days of Christmas.”
In this video, shot amid the ruins and continuing clean-up from the storm, the hurricane victims reference “what I really need” - basic survival needs like socks, lost treasures like a young girl’s toys, lost business, lost housing, and more emotional needs like hugs and a lost husband (sung by a woman whose husband passed away nine days after the storm).
