This year, Captain Max is turning 5 and Captain Des is turning 3! These birthday pirates are ready to sail the rough seas to find as much treasure as they can to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.
As many of you are already aware, this devastating typhoon hit the Philippines last Friday. The typhoon affected 4.3 million people across 36 provinces. The death toll is over 10,000 and growing. I can't even imagine what that was like for the people of the Phillipines - if it was my home washed away, my parents missing, my child torn away from my arms.
Since birthdays are meant to celebrate life, I feel it would be a great opportunity for our family to give back to their heritage and help the survivors overcome this disaster. Any amount you can donate would greatly be appreciated. Just to put things in perspective, it could take as little as $300 US dollars to build a home in the Philippines. 1 dollar goes a long way there.
Please don't feel obligated. I know many of you have organizations that you aleady support. Regardless, we welcome you to celebrate two lives that have changed our worlds in the most positive ways imaginable!
