Friends and family: As you are all aware, Super Typhoon Haiyan, one of the most powerful storms in recorded history, struck the Philippines two weeks ago causing indescribable destruction, loss of life, and leaving 10s of thousands without food, shelter, or livelihoods. While this story has already largely dropped on the news radar, replaced by the latest political scandal or celebrity sighting, the rebuilding of people’s homes, lives, and communities will go on for years. In an effort to provides some small gesture of help, I have put together a calendar of cultural and travel images from around the Philippines. 100% of the proceeds from the sales of this calendar will go to Mercy Corps Haiyan relief efforts. I’m asking for your support in helping the people of the Philippines, through purchase of one of these calendars, and/or by sharing this post with your friends. Thanks y’all.
Incidentally, the church shown on the front cover of the calendar is the San Pedro Church in Loboc, Bohol. This church was seriously damaged by the earthquake this past October.
