Almost half of my family now face the task of rebuilding homes and livelihoods in the devastated Ormoc City. Incredibly, everyone is fine and we now need to focus on supporting the resilience of the people who live there.
This sweet boy is smiling in Leyte Island despite the food and water shortage. It captures nicely the spirit of the people in the Philippines. I would be most grateful if you would support some of the relief aid that is needed so badly. Ormoc City is not as newsworthy as Tacloban, and many people left homeless had very little to begin with. I think most folks are tired of the doom and gloom of seeing the devastated area, so I'm focusing on the positive outcomes, and that includes your help!
Of course charities are a dime a dozen, so as an added incentive, for every $20 you donate, I will enter your name in a raffle for a $50 Visa gift card or a $25 gas card. I will do the drawing on Dec 10th and get the winner his/her prize in time for Christmas. That extra Christmas shopping money is a win-win! Of course, any donation amount will come with a personalized thank you as well.
