On November 8th, disaster struck in the Philippines as the country was hit by Typhoon Haiyan. With more than 580,000 people displaced and nearly 2.5 million people in need of food and water, we have decided to take action. We are a small group of students, from a small school, in a small city, looking to make a BIG difference.
We are students at Stevens Institute of Technology atop Castle Point in Hoboken, New Jersey. Last October we combated devastating Hurricane Sandy, and we were touched to see how many people chose to helps us during our time of need. Now, one year later, it is our turn to make a difference. When the disaster struck in the Philippines it definitely hit home. Our goal is to raise $1,000 to help provide relief and support to those affected by Typhoon Haiyan. More importantly, we want to show the people of the Philippines how much we care by helping them on their road to recovery through the American Red Cross.
Please, show the people of the Philippines how much you care by donating to the American Red Cross Emergency Relief fund via this fundraising page. Every little bit helps.
