I woke up to a text this morning from Tyler:
“What’s going on in the Philippines is awful. I wish we could do more to help. Do you want to adopt a kid?”
I love him so much. And his huge heart. Although we are in no position to adopt, we want to help contribute to the relief efforts of Typhoon Haiyan and so can you.
First – have you seen how bad things really are? I had no clue. Look at these interactive maps showing before and after shots - it was very eye opening to imagine hungry, cold, hurt, and homeless people in what’s left of these towns.
Here is a great article from the NY Times with safe ways give money (and information to attend fundraising brunches/dinners).
If you prefer to wear your support in the form of a Prayer Bracelet for the Philippines – this sweet jewelry shop, Sophie Grace Maui, has them for $15 – all proceeds go to disaster relief.
Do you know any other great companies offering support or donation matching programs? I’d love to hear!
