A new boat for Krish

I am trying to raise money for Krishna Reigno Mandac Masong. Krish lives in Coron, Palawan, the Philippines. I am an American who visited Coron in January of 2013. I hired Krish's motorboat to take me on a tour of the nearby island attractions. He was an excellent tour guide, and one of the friendliest people that I have ever met. Krish's boat is his livelihood. He takes tourists out on his boat, and with that money, he supports his wife and son. Unfortunately, Krish's boat was destroyed during Typhoon Haiyan. In addition, the infrastructure of Coron suffered massive damage, so tourism there will be affected for many months to come. This will greatly affect Krish's income in a negative way. There's nothing we can do to make tourism rebound on Coron, but we CAN make it easier for Krish to get back on his feet by getting him a new boat. It took him years to save up the money to buy his boat. If we get him the money to buy a new boat now, it will be a great help to him, and to his family. To verify his story, look him up on Facebook by using his full name. Look at his pictures. Send him a message and a message to those who tagged him in their vacation pictures-- long before the typhoon ripped through Coron. They'll confirm who he is and what he does for a living, and what a great guy he is. Please contribute what you can. I'm pitching in $300, so all we've got to come up with is another $1,700. Any amount will help. THANKS!
