Typhoon Haiyan Relief
In light of the disaster in the Philippines, the Arbor Memorial Foundation has donated $5000 to the relief fund.
The Canadian government has set up the Philippines Crisis Matching Fund. This fund will match all donations made by individual Canadians toward typhoon relief. This is in addition to the up to $5-million in disaster relief the government announced on Saturday. If you would like to make a donation please do so here.
Note: The federal government has also set up phone numbers for Canadians looking for information on relatives and friends who may have been caught in the affected areas. They are 1-800-387-3124 or 613-996-8885 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Our thoughts are with all those that have been affected by this tragedy.
