How you can help
When disaster strikes, it’s time to pull together and think about the ways you can help – as every little effort counts.
We have been overwhelmed by the different activities our readers and friends have put together to help our neighbours in the Philippines. From clothes drives to drinks nights – here is how you can help with Typhoon Haiyan Aid.
Drinks at Scoop
This new bar on Club Street is holding a fundraiser next Wednesday night, where 50% of the profits from Scoop, Bartini and Bartini Kitchen will be donated to Habitat For Humanity.
Details: Philippine Disaster Relief Fund Raiser, Scoop, 19 Ann Siang Road, 7pm-midnight.
Chic Stash Sale
Chic Stash will be holding a Hurricane Haiyan relief sale on Wednesday 20th.

The Chic team is also rushing relief and resources to the team in the Philippines and the next flight is November 20. Cebu Air has generously donated 200KG of free excess baggage and the Chic team is working with the Philippine Red Cross, where their crew on the ground is standing by to ensure the safe, quick delivery of supplies.
The Red Cross has an immediate need for food- power bars, granola bars, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, slippers (flip flops) and blankets, medicines and bandages, and cash donations-to purchase additional supplies in Singapore, (write checks to the Philippine Red Cross).

A Shoe Box Full of Hope
A shoebox filled with food and basic survival items, like toothbrushes, canned food, water purification tablets, and a torch, can mean a lot to a victim of Typhoon Haiyan. The good folk behind this drive have teamed up with Synergy Marine Group (a member of the shipping industry) to help with the logistics on both the Singapore side and the Philippines end. 5kg bags of rice are also welcome.
Details: To arrange a drop off (at #23-03 Amber Park, 14 Amber Gardens, Singapore 439960) this weekend, or for more information, contact Sridhar Pingali at 9114 8700 or Srishti Pingali at 9825 3660.
The Honeycombers will be participating in the Swissotel Vertical Marathon on 24 November and all money raised through sponsorship will be donated to victims of the Typhoon via the Philippine Red Cross.
Thank you for your compassion and your generosity – together we can make a difference.
