BENEFITING: American Red Cross
The term "Balikbayan" has two meanings: First, it is often associated with a type of shipping that allows people to send back large boxes of goods back to the Philippines with a low, flat shipping rate. But it also refers to Filipinos who have gone overseas in search for other opportunities. This fundraiser aims at calling balikbayans (and those who know and love them!) to send relief balikbayan boxes to those who have suffered from Typhoon Haiyan. One can easily fill up a box with $150 worth of food and clothing and currently, there are over 1000 families that have suffered from this disaster. Help us in raising enough money to give at least one box to each of the families affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
