EVENT DATE: Jan 15, 2014
There are tens of thousands of homes that have been destroyed from the 2013 hurricane Yolanda in the Southern islands of the Philippines (plenty of facts and pictures all over the internet.)
Having lived near Manila myself for almost 2 years, I have a stronger than average tie to the Philippine people and the beautiful country they live in.
I've been accepted to be included in the relief efforts organized by hands.org for the city of Leyte, Philippines. This is a volunteer effort but it's not all expenses paid.
My desire to help my brothers and sisters in Leyte is strong, but the expenses to make it happen are also considerable.
So I'm reaching out to you - who can and will help fund this effort.
Once I'm home safe and sound again in March, all the residual donations will be given to the very same project in Leyte.
