#Vancouver, join me on Dec 5th at @ANWPvan

As you know, a typhoon swept the Philippines last week and according to reports, over 10,000 people were killed and more than 600,000 families are now displaced.

To help with the relief effort, my kickass friend Elaiza Datar is hosting a fundraising night in collaboration with Francis Arevalo and a number of other talented and driven Filipinos.

Together they have planned a very special evening that includes an array of performances, a silent auction, and many prizes. The event will take place on Thursday, December 5th starting at 6:30pm at the Croatian Cultural Center.

All proceeds made from the event will go towards on-the-ground relief efforts by Rose Charities and the Association of Medical Doctors of Asia. Not sure how legit these two orgs are? Fear not, I did the homework for you 😉 97% of their expenditures last year went to programs, 2% to fundraising, 1% to admin & everything else.

In this day and age, we’re often too busy to be empathetic, but I urge you to show your kindness and generosity towards our Filipino friends. Natural disasters could happen to anyone, anywhere.

Order your ticket from EventBrite today and invite others to join in for this special cause.
