My friends know how important the Philippines is to my heart. This is my other country...where most of my family lives, where I have dual citizenship, where every year I go back to give back to those less fortunate. 

When I first went to Cebu as a child, I realized that the only difference between me and my island counterparts is that they had the misfortune of being born into poverty on another part of the planet. They have Third World problems of necessity and survival and I have First World problems of luxury and excess. Right now they're desperate for our excess. 

Typhoon Haiyan has left thousands dead, nearly a million displaced and countless others hungry for food and water in our region called the Visayas. In the wake of the strongest storm in recorded history and a 7.3 earthquake that hit just a month prior, millions are in need of basic necessities...food, water, shelter and medicine. 

Aid distribution has been hindered by unscrupulous government officials and corrupt organizations. For that reason, I'm focusing my efforts on going back to Cebu to personally get supplies for those desperately in need in the Visayas. Those who know me know that this part of my purpose and now we have an even greater need for help.  

When I return to the Visayas, I'll focus on buying rice, medicine, basic supplies (toothbrushes, soap, etc.) and repairing homes in hard hit areas of northern Cebu (my home island), Bohol and Leyte. I'll document everything in pictures as I've always done in the past to show where your donation goes. 

Whatever you can do towards this mission is so humbly appreciated. 

Daghang Salamat!
