THE STORY:

UPDATE 12/27/13:

Special thanks to Regular Hero for donating $3,000 for our disaster relief trip.  Due to their generous donation, I wanted to challenge myself even more and raise $2,000 more than what I originally planned.  I know we can do it.  So please give what you can every little bit helps.  Our goal is to not only rebuild but have an extra $4,000 to buy building materials and help buy the necessary things that the people need once we are on the ground.

When I was in Japan after the tsunami, so many people were trying to get us to buy things that they thought they needed, but once we got there the one thing the peopel we were working with, really needed 2 airconditioners for the two sites where they were distributing goods.  The elderly people and the children were getting heat exhaustion from the hot weather, and the sites needed a place where they could rest and be comfortable.  After hearing that we quickly bought them air conditioners that helped them the best way we could.  And that is my hope for this trip.  To go and assess the needs of the people and buy what is most necessary.  

In my preliminary communication with them, building materials are what is most necessary right now, but we will know more when we are on the ground.

This week we start building training with our friends at Spark & Dowel.  Cooper Reynolds Gross the owner of this amazing shop, is going to teach us the basics of building, by doing.  He has many years experience in carpentry and also disaster relief.  His dog, although retired is a trained search and rescue dog.

We are so excited to be working closely with him and his shop to be more equipped when we get to the Philippines!

Hi Everyone,

As most of you know I am from Cebu, and with my experience with disaster relief I felt called to go and help my fellow Filipinos after Typhoon Haiyan hit the central visayas.  With my experience from working in Japan after the tsunami, I wanted use my expertise to help in phase 2 of disaster relief which focuses on the rebuild.  I also wanted to share our arts for healing program with the children of Bantayan. Hopefully we can also help them with the trauma they may have experienced from the typhoon and also with the aftermath of the disaster.

With the Thanksgiving holiday coming up, I want you to know that I am so grateful for your support and can't wait to see what we can do in the Philippines with your amazing help. 

Please see more of the details below.

Thanks,

Christine

As many of you know about the disaster that Typhoon Haiyan caused mass destruction in the Philippines.  Although there are many foreign relief efforts being sent to Tacloban, a few outlying islands are not receiving as much attention.  We want to remedy that.  

We, at The 24 Foundation plan to take a team of experienced volunteers to the Bantayan Island, located near the island of Cebu. This rural island has been devastated by Typhoon Haiyan and most of its residents are still without food, water, and adequate shelter. Disease and infection are spreading at alarming rates due to the constant rain and the inability to stay dry.

The 24 team, in partnership with The Young Pioneers and Bangon Bantayanons, will be rebuilding homes for the people of Santa Fe on Bantayan Island.  We will also be doing a portion of our arts for healing program called CATALYST with the children of Bantayan. The arts program will be a way for the kids and teens to process their experience of the typhoon and the after effects of the disaster. 

We are seeking donations to fund our trip and with the surplus, we would love to help the community with whatever their needs may be.  From generators to crank operated flashlights, we will work closely with the local aid group of Bangon Bantayanons to help the people of Bantayan the best way possible. We leave January 15th and come back January 30th.

One of our goals is to raise $8,000 by December 10th so we can purchase our tickets and the rest by the time of our trip.  We need your help to make this aid project a reality.
