"The Filipino Lawyers of Washington (FLOW), in association with the Filipino Community of Seattle (FCS), seeks your support in donating to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda.PDF VERSION TO SHARE
The two charities that FLOW has chosen to support are: (1) World Vision, http://www.worldvision.org, and (2) Americares, http://www.americares.org. FLOW selected these two charities after researching and reviewing various charities, in response to the public’s concern of unfortunate corruption of some charitable organizations where donations aren’t being used to directly, efficiently, and effectively help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda. Please consider this when
making individual donations to charities other than those listed.
There are also a number of fundraising activities the FCS is either hosting or supporting. Please visit http://fcseattle.org for more information.
Please pray for the Philippines, and please consider taking action to assist the relief efforts. There is no effort that is insignificant.
Maraming salamat po! / Thank you very much!
