About this campaign

We're starting this campaign to help our fellow Filipinos that got affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines on November 8, 2013. Tacloban City in particular hits very close to home because it's my parents' hometown. Seeing all the devastation of this calamity on the news and on all social media is very heartbreaking. For 5 straight days we could not locate my Aunt Levy (my mom's sister) and her family in Leyte. Their house is situated literally next to the beach. We have more relatives in this province that we're concerned about as well. Face timing with our mom in Zurich in the last few days has been very stressful since we could not do anything but pray and monitor the news.

An hour ago, I got this text from my mom:

"Tnx God, my sister, ate Levy and her husband, kuya Maling, are safe and alive! Praise the Lord Allelujah! God is great! They just need food, water and medicine. They're in Guinadiongan, where they live, only the big problem, no food, water, medicine and shelter. "

We recently have coordinated with a non-profit organization in Cebu called "Give Back Cebu" that travels back and forth to the affected areas in Cebu, Samar & Leyte. They are packing relief goods and buying all the ESSENTIAL things that all the victims need such as: food, water, blankets, medicines, etc. We are sending monetary donations to them via Paypal.

In my 32 years of existence, I have never asked for monetary donations from anyone... but I am now pleading to you all to help contribute something to this situation. I know a lot of people that have BIG fascination for nice things in life yet I also believe that these people have BIG hearts to share. I'm sure that a few dollars won't hurt our bank accounts. If we could afford to go online, check our Facebook every hour then WE CAN AFFORD TO HELP! Your $20 could buy a sack of rice (50kg) in the Philippines that could feed 100 people in 1 day. I know that we always have a choice and it is OUR CHOICES that show what we truly are!
