Why Children International (Children.org)? They are already set up and have several stations in the Philippines, additionally they are prepared and established from previous successful typhoon relief efforts in the past, helping multiple countries including the Philippines, so this is something they have the capacity to make immediate efforts NOW!
additional information on Children.org:
Children International is an organization registered with the Philippine Department of Social Welfare and Development, Children International is uniquely positioned to provide aid to typhoon victims in the Philippines. We have an established and wide-reaching distribution network in the country that will be pivotal in providing aid where it's needed most in the weeks to come.
Following disaster protocols, Children International is coordinating our aid efforts with humanitarian partners in the Philippines while the situation stabilizes in affected areas. As soon as we are able to work safely in Tacloban, the hardest-hit area, we will help children and families recover and rebuild.
Concurrently, Children International staff north of Tacloban are releasing immediate Lifeline aid – including items such as food, water and other desperately needed essentials – to help typhoon-affected families in Legazpi.
Although Legazpi, was spared the full brunt of Super Typhoon Haiyan's fury, it still suffered destruction. Many of the city's poorer neighborhoods – located along the vulnerable coastline – have been leveled by the storm.
"We need your backing to help the children in Legazpi and Tacloban. Your generous donations will bring desperately needed aid to children and families suffering in the aftermath of Haiyan, as well as support long-term recovery efforts in the Philippines. We pledge that 100 percent of all funds collected for Typhoon Haiyan will be used to support disaster-relief efforts in that area. Please give today," ~Children International
That's 100% of total funds raised here on crowdrise.com & through the Organization's main site https://www.children.org/Articles/Article/11345 are specifically being used for Typhoon Haiyan Relief efforts in the Philippines. (There are many charities to choose from, though many only give the required US government established amount of 10%). Jade has done extensive research and is very passionate about the difference Children International makes in natural disasters like this!
Please Help Jade and make a Difference in many lives. Everyone has causes they believe in, so even if you spread your donations amongst a few or many, even a $10 donation would significantly make a difference ~ that's 2 cups of coffee or 1 day of lunch you normally would buy yourself, help share that love for food, water, clothing & shelter with those who would be so grateful for your generosity in the Philippines.
"Thank you, my heart and emotions have been lifted in these times knowing you are here to help any way that you can! Much love and prayers to these families we are helping",
