Typhoon Haiyan Relief (2013)

Thank you to everyone who helped BREAKTHROUGH assist Lorenzo & Eufemia Tacadena of Far East Mart, collect much needed supplies and monetary donations for Typhoon Haiyan Relief.  All supplies and donations were given to the non-profit organization, Gawad Kalinga and have already been distributed to the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan.

I was moved beyond words with the support I received from friends and strangers as far north from the Capital region to NYC.  From my family to yours, I thank you so very much for your support and generosity.

Special thanks to:

Laurie & Addie Tacadena, Elvie & Jimmy Abordo, Barbara Sklar, Steve O’Connor, Jon Cring, Yoel Emmanuel, Sandra Teller, Gloria Bonelli, Dana Lockhart & Pat Gallio.
