I’m just a guy who draws pictures, but I’d like to ask you to consider donating a little bit towards Typhoon Haiyan recovery efforts in the Philippines.
I’m half-Filipino, so this one (literally) hits close to home. Not to diminish the tragedy of other storms like Katrina, or Sandy, but compared to the US, the Philippines desperately needs help; the lack of infrastructure in large parts of the country, coupled with challenging geography and logistical problems, have left a LOT of extremely vulnerable people.
Again, I just draw pictures but this post that has been going around outlines more specifics, and also how best to contribute to respondent efforts.
Barring that, I saw that both tumblr and facebook have made it easy to contribute funds with links directly on the dash/wall.
You can also just simply donate to the Philippine Red Cross at their site.
I rarely ask for you guys to reblog/share/spread the word, but I would greatly appreciate it if you did for this one. Thank you!
