Hello Friends

My name is Rich Schwartzenburg a former Cruise Director that along with a great team of friends, family & strangers are gathering donations of any amount in order to help the victims of typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan in the Philippines.

I will personally be traveling to the Philippines on December 8th 2013 and using the money to purchase care packages (rice, noodles, first aid kits, tooth brushes etc.) that will be distributed in the areas around the small town of President Roxas Capiz.

This cause is very improtant to me as this is the home town of my girl friend & her family; thankfully none of which came to harm during the storm but others in the area lost everything.

The Typhoon claimed over 3,000 down from the original estimate of 10,000 lives and had direct affects (loss of home, family members, food, lively hood ie. buisnesses, fishing boats, transportation) on over 10,000,000 people.

The original intent of this trip was to spend my first Christmas in the Philippines a country I consider my second home but now the purpose in the true spirit of the Holidays is far greater.

Please help with any amount of donations knowing that 100% of the funds will go directly to those in need.

For any of you that have worked in the cruise industry or cruised yourself as a guest, you will know how life has been made better by a Filipino.  NOW, here is your chance to return the favour by helping them. Please support in any way you can

I also encourage you to share this link and post on all forms of social media email, twitter, facebook, etc. as even spreading the word will help.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart in helping the country heal over the holidays after so much has been taken from it!
