After a disaster strike, rescue efforts will end after few months.To the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, the people will still have no home to stay. Any government program to restore their home will take at least 1 year (or more) to happen so they will either be at temporary shelter or left to stay at their own land with almost no shelter just to prevent informal settlers from moving in. Either way, they will be left with unmet needs. This is where you come in. What you can do — Be part of something great – spread the word or buy a shirt. A small step but together it creates big impact!
One hundred percent (100%) of the proceeds for this campaign will go towards helping Typhoon Haiyan Disaster Victims beyond rescue efforts by means of providing more food, more shipment of donated items, tools to restore their home and bath products until June 2014.
Those who wish to join the giving event in the Philippines can sign up by sending email with your contact information to email@example.com.
The campaign will launch every 30 days until June 2014 so that every 30 days, help is released to the people.

The last batch of donated items received for the month of July has been completed today. Magazines showing photos of each giving will be distributed to donors by end of August. Most of the photos for this giving will not be published for privacy reason to ensure disadvantaged people remain safe from discrimination as they are all seeking for employment. Below are some of the photos we can share with you.

The Church is having birthday potluck same time we are there so people had the chance to

which donation because not all of them can write.
Community Ambassador Reynaldo Ramos with Volunteers Brenda, Andrew, Sokevin who all speaks
Cambodian. Thank you for helping us today and for making sure people understood everything.
We would not have been able to communicate with them if it was not for all of you so THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
CGF reps are going to a homeless shelter of people with illness today to give out donated goods from Regis Salons.
We believe that giving does not always have to mean exposing people who are disadvantaged just to be recognized of doing good deeds. Therefore, no photos will be posted for public viewing to protect privacy of the people but we will have something to present to donor as part of reporting.
Two more giving will take place this month to complete distribution of all goods received. Thank you for following us and for taking the time to read this post.
Today we found out some of you are unable to wait for the products and have already been stopping by the Center. Please wait for Tuesday August 6th. It is on a first-come-first-served basis starting at 5:00pm but no worries, the donors have been super generous so there’s plenty for everyone.
WHERE TO FIND US AT THE CENTER – go to the left side of the building (before the main entrance) where they have the head-shaped fountains.
- Go to the window to ask for products.
- Our Volunteer Stylists will be mingling with the crowd to give some hairstyle tips.
- Ice Cream is served the entire time to keep you cool and there will be chairs for you to sit in case the line is long.

As part of CGF’s role as a resource center, the magazine was published to allow grantors to be able to have legitimate source of data when considering funding they are passionate about. Since we still have plenty of nonprofits awaiting further assistance, we will not be publishing any new editions until most of them are funded by grantors. Publishing these magazines do take some effort, time and money which we are currently short of so we will focus on important matters that are in need of attention now so we can begin to see some of the projects become available to the community.
