Phillapines Disaster Relief - A Note From My Colleague Amy
In the immediate days following the typhoon, I took it upon myself to send out an email to my workmates and my boys school families asking for help in the form of donations of clothing, medicine, canned goods or shoes. The response from people was overwhelming and extremely heart warming. I managed to send 21 massive boxes of donations and pay the freight ($2310) with the money donated.
These donations were distributed equally amongst 1000’s of people and I cannot begin to tell you how grateful they all were.
To date I am still receiving donations of toys and clothing as people sort through their wardrobes and I continue to send a box a month for those still in need. Each box costs $115 Australian to send and takes 4-8 weeks to arrive by sea.
Simon has been most generous in suggesting your pilates group may be able to assist with some of the costs of freight. Any help would be so greatly appreciated.
Happy 2nd birthday guys! Amy
