Philippine Typhoon Relief
In addition to my personal donations, any revenue made by Sprytile this November and December will be set aside as donations to relief funds to help people affected by the typhoons.
I would like to ask for any help you can extend to the relief efforts here in the Philippines. There are organizations here doing good work that can accept donations via Paypal. I'll list the groups that I am making my personal donations to below, if you wish to make direct donations to them.
If you don't want to make direct donations to these groups, any donations made to Sprytile on November and December will be put towards relief funds.
The following groups accept PayPal donations, making it easier for international donations.
- Kaya Natin - This organization works closely with the Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo who has been tirelessly working for the Filipino people despite being frozen out of power by the worst actors in the Philippine government.
- Rural Women Advocates - This group focuses on helping Filipino farmers in the rural areas who have been long ignored by the government.
- Power In Her Story - A drive by a local feminist book publisher, this relief effort focuses on the needs of urban poor women who have been hit by the typhoon.
- For Our Farmers - This charity is helping out farmers whose crops have been devastated by the typhoons.
If you're from the Philippines, here are a few other groups you may want to consider donations to:
- Save San Roque, Kadamay - Relief drive in solidarity with the urban poor
- Pagasa PH - A group focused on good governance that is delivering hot meals to flood survivors.
- Philippine Animal Welfare Society, Pawssion Project - Groups focusing on helping animals that have been abandoned in the wake of the typhoons
- UP Manila Student Council, Tulong Isko - Groups focusing on students affected by the typhoons.
You can also look at this spreadsheet that collates relief efforts.
If you can donate, thank you so much. If you're not in a position to do so, I would really appreciate it if you could spread word about typhoon relief efforts here in the Philippines.
I've been keeping track of my personal donations in this twitter thread. Thank you so much for the donations people have made through Sprytile purchases, this will make a difference.
