Donate to Support Philippines Relief Efforts

Philippines Relief

One thing that traveling has done for me is that it has a given me a more visceral and emotional connection to many places around the world. When a disaster strikes someplace I’ve been, it isn’t just a abstract curiosity. Traveling makes the people and places who are effected real.

The Philippines is a real place to me. I spent almost a month exploring the country and I’ve met dozens and dozens of Filipinos around the world since my visit. I’ve consistently said that Filipinos might be my favorite people in the world. I’ve literally met Filipinos on every continent (that includes Antarctica!)

As you are aware the Philippines was hit by a devastating typhoon only months after the same region was hit by a large earthquake. There are estimates of 10,000 dead and hundreds of thousands without homes.

G Adventures and Planeterra is looking to raise money for reconstruction efforts. G Adventures will match every dollar raised up to $30,000. It doesn’t have to be a lot. Every little bit adds up.

I just donated and I encourage you to as well.

    What happened to their country is really devastating. Never seen a natural disaster like this. Good thing everyone is really helping out!

  2. Yes, Philippines now needs help. If you can’t donate money, just include them in your prayers because it will mean a lot. They have been in many catastrophe this year and what the best way to help is hope them nothing but the best in order to stay positive.

    Hi, I’m from Cebu in the Philippines but lucky to say, our place was not one of those hard hit. I highly commend blog owners that encourage their readers to help out our country though. Thank you very much. Your generosity is highly appreciated. :)

    And I hope many of your readers are encouraged to help out as well.
