Occupy Sandy: Wall Street protest group finds new cause delivering aid to storm victims

You might be surprised at what has become a lauded and effective relief organization for victims of Superstorm Sandy: Occupy Wall Street.

Social media savvy helped Occupy protesters create a grass-roots global movement last year. Now that's helping them fan out across New York to deliver aid including medicines, blankets, food and water.

They took food and water to 53-year-old Glenn Nisall in his devastated Queens neighborhood. He says "I'm one of the 99 percent."

Occupy Sandy started at a Brooklyn church the day after the storm. Occupiers set up a base of operations there and then used social media to spread the word and get donations.
