UPDATE: after less than 48 hours, I have raised $3800. This is outstanding and unbelievable. I will be raising my goal to $5000. Praying this isn't crazy but if my friends, family and clients can donate that much in less than 48 hours, it's possible in my mind!!! thank you!!!!
UPDATE: after 8 hours, my goal of $500 was exceeded by 105%, so I'm upping the goal to $2500. thank you everyone!
This is my mom's homeland. I have a special affinity for the Filipinos and much of this country is so poor this is the last thing they needed; the area hit had no chance. At the 36 hour mark they are saying 10,000 have been killed and many more expected. I cannot fathom. Please consider donating to the RED CROSS to help those who have survived and have lost everything. The RED CROSS is even saying they are running out of body bags!
After the Japan Tsunami I did a crowrise event that helped raise over $4000 for the Red Cross. I'd love to help raise even a PORTION of that for my mom's homeland. Like last time, I'd like to do the same thing by offering an incentive!
Here's the incentive: For every $25 you donate, your name will be entered in a RAFFLE to win a free photo session (this spring or summer) with me along with 25 fully edited images on CD. This is something I usually sell for well over $1000. It's worth it! Please forward this to your friends so they can be entered into the raffle as well!
I will award the winner on November 30th and notify you then. But you MUST email or message me if you don't submit your email publically here. Otherwise, I 1) can't thank you or 2) throw your name into the raffle!!!
Thank you for making this possible and for helping these poor people!
Let's bring it on!!!
