Typhoon in the Philippines | Heart Philippines Relief Project

Typhoon in the Philippines | Heart Philippines Relief Project

Instead of a typical gratitude post this week, I decided that I want to share about Heart Philippines. It’s a relief project for all types of creatives: youtubers, bloggers, musicians, diy-ers, etc. We did one on a smaller scale for Japan after the earthquake, and we figured this is the least we could do right now after the typhoon in the Philippines. As of yesterday, it was reported that 11 million people have been affected, 673000 displaced, and 2500 killed. During times like this, I really wish I had done what my parents wished for me and gone into the medical field.

Instead, I am hoping that spreading the word via blog and what little money we can give will make some sort of difference in the lives of the victims affected. Last time we hosted a fundraiser, we were incredibly humbled by the response. I know it’s hard to say you’re grateful in the same breath describing such tragic circumstances. I can’t even pretend to know the grief and sorrow from the lives lost and the devastation. Despite this, I’m thankful that all of us have a voice and we all have something to share. We can all give in some form or fashion. Like Mother Teresa said, “If you can’t feed 100, then feed just one.” Might be referencing her a lot, since I’ve been reading her autobiography these days.

I’m part of heart philippines, and would love for you to be part of it too! You can donate, buy a shirt, help spread the word, or get creative in the ways you can give! Thank you in advance!

    1. I love that everyone can do something! :) I mentioned to some other bloggers, that you can also offer sponsorships for donations. The possibilities are really endless.

  2. What an awesome idea, Esther! I just donated through the Direct Relief site. I loved that you shared that Mother Theresa quote. It’s so easy to be overwhelmed by the big picture but when I focus on the one I feel like I can actually do something to help.

    1. Thank you, @amyclubnarwhal:disqus! It’s so true. It can get overwhelming just looking at the amount of devastation and people that have been affected. I always need that reminder too.
