As you all know, the strongest typhoon to hit the planet, landed in central Philippines last weekend affecting almost 10million Filipino with wind up to 200mph and storm surges that created waves up to 30meters high.

For the next few months, my country men will need food, water and shelter. As a carpenter in the Philippines, I am posting this bird I made to capture your attention and hopefully direct you to this link on how you can donate to organizations and relief efforts that have been set up:

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2013/11/09/haiyan-how-you-can-help/3484467/

Any amount would be helpful because even after a couple of months, people will still need your help.

In the third photo, I’ve also donated my bench (with pyrography images of children) to UNICEF, where 100% percent of the auctioned price will be put into good use.

P.S. It doesn’t hurt to make an effort and reduce your contribution to climate change.

It was a tragic event and many lives were lost. My heart goes out to the people so affected.

Unfortunately the press has blown Yolanda’s magnitude a bit out of proportion as they have want to do at times. The stated intensity was somewhat inflated according to actual measurements and Typhoon Reming which hit the Philippines Nov 30 2006 was measured stronger with peak gusts of 320 kph as opposed to the measured peak gusts of Yolanda of a mere 275 kph. Yolanda did however result in greater loss of life likely because of the high population density and poverty in the area struck.

I was wondering if you were ok. Good see you again.

CNN has posted the relief charities web sites for contributions.

Just to let everyone know.. I am fine and so with my family relatives and friends who are living in my provincial place Sorsogon, Sorsogon, where it is the southend of Luzon that connects the ferry to Samar and Leyte.

Just hoping that those roads for the relief transfer be cleared now. Been 5 days now yet no food and potable water reached those remote places.. Prayers for the victims.
