Will you help me share #JerseyLove? Tourism is big business for New Jersey. Without a strong summer season, many businesses won’t make it through the year. Everyone remembers seeing the destruction Hurricane Sandy caused to so many shore towns in NJ and NY, but there is not as much media coverage of the recover. This has residents worried that tourism will be down this summer.
I’m from Philadelphia, and I’m proud to say that “I Love New Jersey.” I spent my summers at the shore when I was a child. I have so many happy memories of building sandcastles, jumping waves, boogie boarding and nights on the boardwalk. Last July, my family was a guest of the Atlantic City Alliance for the 4th of July celebrations on the famous Atlantic City boardwalk. And we plan on going back to New Jersey for vacation this summer.
Many moms are joining to show the #JerseyLove. I posted on Babble Cares today about the joint efforts of Social Media Moms and NJ Digital Moms to help with the Hurricane Sandy recovery and to spread the word that the Jersey beaches are open for summer travel. More than 40 bloggers, representing millions of readers, will be tweeting and posting #JerseyLove from June 6-9th. Please click over to Babble Cares to read the post and to help support their effort.
