Philippines Typhoon Recovery Effort

We are still raising funds for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan and need your help! Typhoon Haiyan, now known as the strongest Typhoon to make landfall ever, recorded winds of up to 235mph and brought waves as high as 20 feet on unsuspecting cities in the Philippines. It is estimated that over 5,000 people are dead with 700,000+ people being displaced and needing basic aid during the still-unfolding rescue and recovery process. The relief and recovery process is expected last months if not years.

We have many friends in the Philippines as the majority of our company employees are based there and we are using our resources and network to help.

Funds are going towards food, water, clothing, care and relocation assistance. We have set up a command center at our offices in the Philippines to facilitate the relief effort and are working in conjunction with local church groups. We have already sent over the first set of funds which is helping a team of Filipino volunteers travel to the affected areas with a truck full of goods and supplies.

*All donated funds will go towards the relief effort and will be publicly audited by a reputable account firm.*
