So remember that post yesterday — the one about helping Planeterra support Architecture for Humanity in their efforts to rebuild the Philippines? The one in which we asked for your help to raise $25,000?
The response has been incredible. You’ve raised $25,000 for the Philippines in less than 24 hours — that’s almost $20 pledged per minute. Check out the results here — and the donations continue to pour in!
First, thank you to everyone who donated, contributed, and otherwise helped spread the word about our Philippines Typhoon Recovery & Rebuild campaign. It’s simply astonishing what we can accomplish with just a tiny bit of effort. Congratulations to all.
…let’s keep it going!
Now, just because we’ve hit our goal already doesn’t mean we should take our collective foot off the gas. The Philippines has experienced extensive damage and loss, and our partners at Architecture for Humanity will have their work cut out for them. Let’s see just how far we can take this campaign. So whatever you did yesterday, keep doing it. Let’s push that total up as far as we can go. It’s amazing how readily we will all jump in to support a cause. We should all feel fortunate to be part of such an eager, giving, and caring community!
Where will my donation go?
By making a donation today, you’ll be supporting a grassroots network of architects and building professionals who will lend their talents and expertise in parts of the Philippines where their services are most needed and can least be afforded. Architecture for Humanity approaches crisis response in phases. They first assess needs within affected communities and then create a roadmap to provide effective solutions once they’ve assessed the challenges. We’ll have a more concrete idea of the project(s) our funds will support once the first phase of assessment is complete. Keep an eye on planeterra.org for details as they unfold.
Even if you can’t help, someone you know can. Spread the word and tell your friends, your family, your co-workers, and your social networks. (And don’t forget to tag your posts with the #ReliefPH and #GAdvCares hashtags.) The more we raise, the more we can help.
Together, we have the power to change the world. Please join us.
