Business gives free spray tans to victims of Hurricane Sandy

There is no question that Hurricane Sandy victims need support.

Volunteers have been helping them dig out from the historic storm for weeks, fundraisers are helping to provide them the means to rebuild and food drives are making sure they stay fed.

But one local business did what it could to help return something else to some area storm victims: a sense of normalcy.

East Coast Glo, an airbrush tanning salon on Route 71, spent Sunday giving free spray tans to dozens of Hurricane Sandy victims. And when so many people signed up to take advantage of the opportunity, the salon extended its hours multiple times to accommodate that demand instead of turning people away.

“Everyone has something to give, and this was something that I was able to do,” said Melissa Kinsman, 31, who has owned and operated East Coast Glo for seven years.

“With the recovery underway, people are feeling down. Especially women, who might be stuck in the same outfits day after day, cleaning and taking care of the kids,” Kinsman said. “If something as silly as a spray tan could make them feel a little better, then this was a no brainer.”

    And hence the reason I’m not sending these dumbasses dime ONE of my money. New Yawkas and New Joiseyites have been screwing up the country for more than 50 years, so…

    SCREW ‘EM! >:-(

    My 10 year old daughter, God Bless her!

    The other day she told my wife that all she wanted for the holidays was duct tape (the designer stuff kids use to make things out of). When my wife asked her why, she said she felt bad that a lot of children lost all their toys from the Hurricane and wanted us to donate the money we were going to spend on presents for her.

    When my wife asked her “what about any presents that were already bought”, she said take them back for a refund or donate them to the Marines “Toys for Tots” that we see in the mall during the Holidays.

    This was all her own thought, she did not hear any libtard trying to make her feel guilty or anything like that.

    We told her that was very thoughtful of her to do. Instead though, what we are going to do is this. I run a small online hobby business and at the end of every year, I take 10% of the money I have in my business account at years end and put it into my daughters savings account so she has something when she gets out of high school. I told her we’ll take $100 of that money and use that to buy toys at the toy store and then take that over to “Toys for Tots”.

    I told her that the $100 is her money (though she would never miss it since it would go to her savings account until she was 18), so this way she feels like she is helping out some other children and using her own money to do so.

    Does spray on tan act like insulation? If so, they are gonna need it as winter approaches.
    I have a really bad feeling this is going to get ugly as the temps drop into the teens in January.

    Hopo they know they’ll be getting a letter from the IRS via HHS for not paying their fairshare into Obamacare being suntan booths are 1 of the people and businesses he targeted for taxes.
    So unless they are non-profit, these people owe Obama tax money.

    Good thing a spray on tan is more important than electricity to these Obama lever pulling kool-aid drinkers.
