Philippine Relief

Over the weekend the Philippines experienced the largest tropical cyclone to ever hit land fall in recorded history.  The news and my Facebook feed has been filled with devastating images of mass destruction, pleas for help, and grief.  I am lucky that most of my family back home live far enough away from it’s deadly path.

The out pouring of support has been phenomenal but you can always do more.  The Canadian government will be matching charitable donations made by individual Canadians to any registered Canadian charities. CTV has a list of charities here.

I think most would agree that any Filipino you meet whether it be in the Philippines or living abroad (we are everywhere!) that they are the most kind-hearted and generous people that you will meet. I hope that you will consider helping the relief efforts if you can in any way you can.

If you’re from outside of Canada, you can still help. CNN has done a great summary of relief efforts on their page here.
