On November 29th, 2013 I went to the Philippines to assist wherever possible as well as raising awareness and trying to find a way to make an impact for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda. It was a life changing experience for me that left me broken in some ways but extremely committed to helping the Filipino community after witnessing firsthand the tragedy, the destruction and the pain that was caused by the disaster. After having spent 10 days in Tacloban and the surrounding areas meeting with many families and children and asking how I could help, I was met with a strong sense and desire from many parents and children alike to help rebuild their park and community area at Leyte Park. Although their first priorities are to their shelter and immediate needs, they discussed openly how they wish they could have a place to send their children to have a safe place to play, and a place where they as parents could also find an area of peace and respite from all they have to overcome.
A group of us as volunteers will be heading back to Tacloban in February to rebuild the park working in tandem with local Tacloban residents Roger De La Cruz and Andrew Garcia. We will have the supplies shipped in from Cebu and we have residents on the ground that will help rebuild the areas.
I am asking for your help to accomplish this project. Any contribution large or small will make make an impact in ways that can't be measured in words. I thank each and every one of you for your support.
