Hey, guys! I know this is quite different from the usual VapeDeals content, but it’s incredibly important, so I wanted to quickly share it with you. As many of you know, I work with a small non-profit organization called Abounding in Love. We help provide cleft lip and palate surgery for impoverished children in the Philippines. We offer support in other ways too, such as food, medicine, education, and disaster relief projects.
Our newest project is helping the victims of Typhoon Odette. The storm devastated the Philippines in December, claiming over 400 lives and leaving over 150,000 homeless. It was the second-costliest storm in Philippine history. Many of the families we support lost everything. Due to their state of poverty, they are unable to recover from the disaster.
Since the last week of December, Abounding in Love has been providing food, water, shelter, and financial assistance to those in need. On top of that, our team is building new homes to replace those that were destroyed, as well as making repairs to the ones that are still standing.
I’ve personally started a Typhoon Odette Fundraiser on GoFundMe to help us raise money for this mission. This is a huge project and we simply lack the resources to do it without additional support…which is why I’m writing this post.
Abounding in Love Typhoon Odette Fundraiser:
- Relief Goods (food, water, medicine, etc.): $4000
- Building Materials: $7000
- Construction Labor: $6000
- Financial Assistance: $2000
I know money is tight for a lot of us right now, but if you’d be willing to chip in, that would be AMAZING. I can assure you that 100% of every donation will go directly to this project. If you can’t afford to make a financial contribution, please take a minute to share the fundraiser with friends, family, and co-workers. The hardest thing for small non-profits like us is finding support, so one simple share could make a big difference.
Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or if you’re looking for other ways to show your support. Thank you!
My name is Jeremy and I’ve been writing for VAPE.DEALS since early 2016. Digging for deals is what I do! I’m a former 15-year smoker and will always be grateful that I found vaping when I did. This site played a key role in my journey. It kept me interested and excited about vaping during those first crucial months away from cigarettes. Now, my ambition is to pass along that excitement to others; to help people make the switch and never return to combustible cigarettes. This industry is important and I feel truly blessed to be a part of it. Please feel free to reach out to me if you ever have any questions: [email protected]
