    For Philippines with Love

    Today I’m joining with my friends Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours, along with many other bloggers, in a blogger day of silence to bring awareness and attention to the Philippines. As you probably know by now Typhoon Haiyan has devastated much of the country. With winds of over 195 mph, the typhoon tore apart cities, turning them into rivers and leaving a trail of massive destruction. The damage is so extensive that there is no electricity, food or water. The hospitals are overrun with the injured, medical supplies are running out, and there are an estimated 10,000 people dead. The Philippines needs of our help.

    Money donated will go to ShelterBox, which provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most. Each large ShelterBox is tailored to a disaster but typically contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items. A whole box costs $1,000 (US), so we’re hoping to raise enough to send 3 boxes to those that need it in the Philippines.

    Please join us and spread the word. Whatever and however you can contribute is appreciated. Every little bit helps.
