EVENT DATE: Jan 15, 2014

THE STORY:

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 Young Pioneer Tours 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.  Our tentative date to leave is January 15th-January 30th we will spend a bulk of our time rebuilding schools and homes as well as 2 days working with the children using our arts program.

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.
