Thank the Nurses and First Responders

I just added my name to this thank you card that MomsRising is delivering to nurses and first responders. Will you add yours too? I've copied the email below for more information.
We were saddened by the seemingly endless stream of pictures of destruction from Hurricane Sandy yesterday. But there was a bright spot that gave us hope and made us deeply grateful: The work of the nurses and first responders to save lives.
At NYU hospital, 200 patients, including 20 newborns, were evacuated and carried down several flights of stairs by hardworking nurses and medical center personnel. (1) First responders saved hundreds of lives up and down the East Coast last night, especially in New York and New Jersey. (2) Rescue workers, firefighters, and medical workers put their lives on the line last night. And we know they'll continue to be there for us in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and beyond.
Will you join us in thanking them? Sign our thank you card for Hurricane Sandy nurses and first responders:
In the next few weeks, we will deliver your signatures in-person on a giant thank you card, along with flowers, to the hospitals and first responder units that were hit the hardest by Hurricane Sandy. We'll post pictures of the deliveries on our blog. Please pass this link along to your friends and family so they can add their thanks as well. Let's show these incredible people how grateful we are for their selfless commitment and hard work.
