This is so great!

Ralph Lauren is digging deep into his pockets and donating $2 million to help New Yorkers who were affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The designer explained why he was moved, saying:

"I'm a born and bred New Yorker. I raised my family here and started my business here. We want to support the selfless work of so many agencies, professionals and volunteers and hope that these donations will make it easier for our cities to rebuild and recover."

Both the Ralph and Ricky Lauren Family Foundation and the Ralph Lauren Corporation are donating $1 million each and will be divided amongst the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, American Red Cross, Robin Hood Relief Fund and other organizations.

We’re glad public figures like Ralph are helping, not only because they have the ca$$$h, but to encourage others to as well.
