After Hurricane Sandy knocked out power to thousands for a long time, people were unable to charge their cellphones and contact family.  Now, NYC is installing 25 solar powered charging stations for cellphones around the city to help.

I want a job in HRC's "shadow" cabinet. Good pay, really easy hours, lots of time off. Can't go wrong.
