Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

All week, our inbox has been filling up with emails about sales and donation drives aimed at helping New Yorkers who were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. With a nor'easter closing in and thousands still displaced in the Rockaways, Coney Island, Staten Island, and elsewhere around the region, your help can definitely still make a difference. Below is a map of fifteen fashion organizations raising money and collecting goods for hurricane relief. If you know of others, send us an email. We hope to be updating the list regularly.
