Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda - International Day of Solidarity for thesurvivors

Sorry for my late post, I've been much busier than usual. I had a different post planned, but I thought I should share this instead.

If you haven't heard, a Super Typhoon hit the Philippines on November 7th. There's been over 10,000 deaths and so many people left in need of shelter, food, water, and medicine.

Today is actually the International Day of Solidarity for the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda.

There will be a candlelight vigil at San Francisco State University at 5:30 p.m.

and at Martin Luther King Library in Downtown San Jose at 6:15 p.m.

If any of you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, please do think about attending or inviting others to attend.

We will be collecting donations at the vigils and will be sending them via NAFCON-USA.

If you would like to help, please donate through 

They are transparent about where their donations go. They give the money to grassroots organizations who are actually there in the Philippines doing ground work and will continue to help rehabilitate and rebuild communities long after the news reports.
