Jack Announces Support for Typhoon Relief in the Philippines

November 15, 2013

In the wake of Typhoon Haiyan, Jack is donating $10,000 to four organizations working hard to provide food, water, medicine and on-the-ground support for relief and recovery efforts in the Philippines, where millions of people have been impacted. Jack is encouraging fans to support relief efforts in any way they can.

GlobalGiving - Super Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund will help first responders meet immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will support longer-term efforts run by local organizations.

Waves For Water - Super Typhoon Haiyan Relief is initially focused on providing clean water and 200 water filtration systems, then will expand into longer term solutions such as rain-water harvesting systems at schools and medical clinics.

U.S. Fund for UNICEF - Emergency Response in Philippines is mobilizing resources in the Philippines to reach children immediately. Staff are delivering aid and airlifting water purification tablets, medical kits, nutrition supplements and other essential goods.

Direct Relief International - Typhoon Haiyan Emergency Response is airlifting medical shipments for health facilities critically-low on supplies such as antibiotics and medications and will send on-the-ground staff to further assess health needs.
