We are a group of students at the University of California Irvine looking to contribute to aid in the Philippines in the wake of the second-deadliest typhoon on record for that country-Typhoon Haiyan. With sustained winds at 195 mph, Haiyan was the most powerful storm to strike land on record (according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center). The storm has killed over 3,600 people (confirmed) in the Philippines alone and has left millions of people homeless without basic survival necessities. The goal of this effort is to help relieve the hardships that people in the Philippines are immediately facing now, and will continue to feel as the country struggles to get back on its feet in the months and years to come. Any contribution will help in the grand scheme as we strive to extend a gesture of compassion to those in a very desperate situation.
Funds collected during this campaign will go directly to American Red Cross. This will ensure that donations will be put to use in expedited and orderly manner, as the Philippines needs help immediately. It is our goal to rally as a community in order to make an impact on the lives of those who now have no option but to rely on the humanity of others to stay alive.
