Donations are Coming in!

Thank you, to those known and anonymous donors who have given some cash to help out. It always feels great when people give what they can to a really good cause.

I've had a few questions asked of me about the money, so I will address them here:

A direct donation will go to my host family, specifically the 2nd oldest son. He works in the disaster response field in the Philippines, but these funds are not going through any NGO's or government offices as those entities tend to have higher overhead costs and red tape about who gets what. The NGOs and government have their own fundraisers, and that is fine. If you wish to donate to them, I have put donation links under the 'Donate' button.

All the money donated directly will go to help typhoon survivors. I can't say who it will go to or what it will buy (food, generator, etc.), but I know that it will be used appropriately.

I can ask the boys to keep a record of where the money goes, and take photos if appropriate, but that won't come until after it's been spent. I know this is a bit unorthodox, but I think it's the best way to spend what little money this fundraiser may bring.

That said, thank you, again. Whoever you are!
