It's only been one week since the storm, but the suffering from Hurricane Sandy is far from over.
With much of New Jersey left in complete devastation after last week's Hurricane, MTV has decided to team up with non-profit organization Architecture for Humanity to “restore the shore.”
On November 15, MTV will air a one-hour special where members of the hit show Jersey Shore will make special guest appearances to help fundraising efforts. “Restore the Shore” will encourage people nationwide to contribute to the rebuilding of Seaside Heights, the heart of the Jersey Shore and home to the MTV hit.
Architecture for Humanity— who will partner with MTV for these efforts—provides design and construction services to communities in need, specializing in natural disaster relief. With the help of the special, a fund will be created with the sole purpose of rebuilding of the famed Seaside Heights boardwalk, as well as supporting the re-building efforts of businesses and residents in the community that were so tragically affected.
Architecture for Humanity previously helped to rebuild New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and Haiti after the devastating earthquake of 2010.
Acting as the second home to the entire Jersey Shore cast, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Sammi Giancola, Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio, Vinny Guadagnino and Jenni "JWoww" Farley have already spoken out about the loss of Seaside.
"The impact hurricane Sandy had on the Jersey Shore is beyond devastating," Sammi said after the hurricane hit the Garden State. "So many families and homes were destroyed and my heart and prayers go out to everyone affected by this storm."
The special will run live from MTV’s Times Square Studio on Thursday, November 15th at 11p.m. ET.
