I've decided to direct all of my birthday generosity to the Philippines as they need the money far more than I do in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan. Instead of buying me a drink, a meal, or whatever else, just donate here (and I love my free food!). Minimum donation is $1. If all of my Facebook friends give $1, that's a boatload of money!
Many of us have been blessed with food, shelter, and warm clothing - things we, myself included, take for granted too often. There is always a cause to give towards, but in light of the unexpected disaster that killed an estimated 10,000 people in the city of Tacloban alone and displaced more than 660,000 people, all of the raised money will go here. One of the best people I know is currently in Manila with Red Bull and highly recommends going through them to get resources DIRECTLY to people that need them as quickly as possible.
Payments are done using PayPal. The PayPal fee + GoGetFunding fee equates to 6.9% + $0.30 per transaction.
