The Super Typhoon Rai swept across the Philippines earlier this month, devastating the country and leaving hundreds dead or homeless without power, food and even drinkable water.
High Noon's resident artist Mike Canizares and his family are among the 80% of his city's population without a place to live, after the typhoon hit his city TWICE. His only chance now is out of the city, but even that has proven difficult with all flights cancelled. As he waits patiently for his opportunity to escape the city, he has had to boil water just to stay hydrated.
There is hope, however, with some family outside of the city, if he can get to them. But even then, he will need to find a more permanent place to call home with mountainous costs to rebuild his life. In this season of giving, we are asking anyone that is able to donate to the cause of establishing a humble safety net for Mikel to recover with, once the dust has settled.
Mikel's journey out of the city begins December 27. Anything raised will go toward helping him get back on his feet as soon as possible.
Mikel has been a part of the High Noon family from the very beginning. His talents have been the primary driving force to bring the characters and universe of High Noon to life. We wouldn't be here without him. It's time for this posse to circle the wagons around our stranded brother.
