We now have more than 100 families of SunPower PH employees impacted by the ongoing calamity. The good news is they are all generally safe and are coping. The sad news is many of them are still not allowed to go back to their homes that in some cases have been severely damaged.
The local charities focus on the distribution of food, clothes and toiletries for all evacuees. They will however not intervene in mid to longer term needs like clean-up, home repair and replacing damaged essentials.
We at SunPower want to raise incremental funds to help co-Sunpower employees in resuming their normal lives without a financial hangover. We hope that through this meager gesture, we can help our rebuild their lives from the ashes of Taal volcano.

For donations not through PayPal (i.e. thru debit/credit card) It might also be helpful to clear all cookies in your computer/gadget browsers (Chrome or Internet Explorer) to make sure that history of your previous log-ins to PayPal account or other credit cards are removed.
