Wow! The response has been humbling. You raised more than $25,000 for the Philippines in 24 hours and now we're up into the $60,000s with more on its way totaling over $70,000.
That means with G Adventures' $30K matching we've got over $100,000 for the rebuild effort! Thank you to everyone who donated, contributed, and otherwise helped spread the word so far. It's simply astonishing what we can accomplish together.
The Philippines has experienced extensive damage and loss, and our partners at Architecture for Humanity will have their work cut out for them. It's amazing how readily we will all jump in to support a cause. We should all feel fortunate to be part of such an eager, giving, and caring community.
Thank you so, so much. See video message from our founder, Bruce Poon Tip.
With your donation, we will support rebuilding schools, clinics and mobilizing teams on the ground in the communities to help affected regions build back better and stronger. As always, G Adventures covers all of our administration costs so 100% of your donation - matched dollar-for-dollar up to $30,000 by G Adventures - will go directly towards this effective effort.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

With our local partners and Architecture for Humanity, Planeterra will help communities beyond the relief phase of disaster to assist in long-term reconstruction. Together, we will help these communities rebuild their lives. Architecture for Humanity has a history of response to crisis that focuses from the moment of disaster on identifying critical need for reconstruction, in order to rebuild in an effective way. They are a nimble organization, that we know personally, with a competent network in the Phillippines working now on a strategy, and they are also listed by CNN as one of the top trusted organizations to mobilize and create effective solutions to natural disasters.
“We are currently in touch with local architects and partners within our network, who are helping us to identify the most critical rebuilding needs - both in the short and long term. As we identify these needs, we will work with communities to build back better. Early support will allow us to begin working with communities immediately and empower local architects to drive recovery locally,” -Eric Cesal, Director
