As PR professionals, few things are as frustrating as trying to stay connected with clients and media when you’re lacking the basic tools of a working phone line and internet connection (and a supply of hot coffee). Following Hurricane Sandy, many on the east coast are finding themselves in this boat. In the spirit of coming together to help those in need following the storm, please check out PR Helping PR on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/PRHelpingPR.

Launched on Facebook November 1st, PR Helping PR is designed to help PR folks find temporary office space, and for those that have temporary office space to offer it to the community. If you have space to offer – a few desks, a conference room, a couch, etc. for someone to work, please let us know how many people you can host and what amenities you have. If you need space for yourself or colleagues, please post a message and we’ll try to get you a response quickly.

Finally, please share the link to PR Helping PR with your industry colleagues to get the word out to the community. Once again the link is http://www.facebook.com/PRHelpingPR.
