On Nov 7 2013, Typhoon Haiyan
, known in the Philippines as Typhoon Yolanda
, became the largest tropical cyclone to make landfall in known history. With winds of up to almost 200 mph, the devastation caused by the storm have left an estimated 10,000 people dead and millions homeless, without access to food, electricity, clean water, or safe infrastructure. Now is the time to help, when need is critical and awareness is highest.
We are an organization of individuals raising funds to directly aid Filipinos in the communities most effected by this tragedy.
We will divide the total amount of donations into 3 equal parts:1) Tacloban 2) Tanauan 3) Babatngon
(baryo -- we fear has less access to help since it is a remote area).
All proceeds for Tanauan Leyte will go to Tanauan Leyte Assumption Foundation. As for the other places, we will work directly with volunteers we know personally who will be out there doing ground work-- they will re-pack and distribute rice and food to as many families in those towns.
All distribution of foods/items will also be documented via photos/videos. There is no pressure or minimum - any help is welcome and we would be incredibly grateful for your support.This will be an ongoing process so we will continue this gofundme page even when we surpass our goal.
On Dec 6th, we will be hosting a Benefit Concert in Newark, CA where local Bay Area artists will perform in order to raise money for relief efforts. Click here
