If there is one thing I learned during this tragic event, it is that the world is full of kind-hearted, generous souls, willing to extend a hand and risk their own safety to help others in need. And our story is just one of hundreds of thousands; many are yet to be heard.
My parents came face to face with the biggest typhoon on earth and they survived. With over 1.4 million people displaced by the super typhoon, we count ourselves one of the very few who were simply lucky.
Together, we’re on a mission to rebuild this town. To transform Balangiga from a devastated community into a bustling coastal town with a prosperous agri-tourism industry by founding a social enterprise. Led by my mother, Amazing Grace is a social enterprise that supports local farmers and entrepreneurs to create thriving businesses that sustain their families, create jobs and rebuild their community.
Help us make this a reality and contribute to our crowdfunding campaign.
I recently married my fiancé in a small, intimate ceremony among family and close friends. We asked our guests to contribute to this campaign as their wedding gifts. We already have everything we need.
Fellow entrepreneurs and friends in the tech start-up space supported us behind the scenes and we are ever so grateful.
I invite you to contribute.
If you’re an entrepreneur, support #HourForHaiyan – contribute one hour’s fees and help rebuild a community through entrepreneurship.
With your help, we will leave the community better and stronger than they were before super-typhoon Haiyan.
