**********UPDATE: FAST FOR THE PHILIPPINES*************


Blog Posted:11/15/2013 2:02:00 PM

Thanks to all for your comments!

So, first I realized that I needed to make the donation part of this process as easy as possible for all involved, so I chose to simplify the process by collecting only the NAMES of those who pledge to donate funds for the Philippines.

I chose three reputable agencies: The Mennonite Relief Committee, Unicef and the Red Cross. I will be dropping off posters and a sponsor sheets to several businesses on Monday, I hope.

The local paper, the New Hamburg Independent, has interviewed me and an article will appear in Wednesday's paper. They were very supportive and encouraging.

Here is my poster and what I'm trying to do


_____________________________________

FASTING

FOR THE PHILIPPINES


I will be fasting from
Fri, Nov 22, Midnight??  - Sun, Nov 24, Noon



I'm ONLY collecting pledge NAMES for emergency relief. YOUR ACTUAL donation can either be given directly at
The New Hamburg Mennonite Thrift Store, on-line at:

http://www.redcross.ca/donate/donate-online/donate-to-the-typhoon-haiyan-fund
or
www.unicef.ca/Philippines-Relief? ? 
or, if able, at your place of worship.

Please sign my sponsor sheet and then make the donation... even a $1 pledge. I will trust that you will gift that pledge amount to whatever agency you choose.

THANK YOU FOR LENDING YOUR SUPPORT!

Typhoon Haiyan has basically destroyed an entire region--- they are hungry and homeless. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!! I am hoping that others will join me in this fast, a show of solidarity for the peoples of the Philippines.

THEY NEED OUR HELP. LET?S SHOW WE CARE!

Please email me at fastforthem@outlook.com if you would like more information or would like to participate in any way. 

 _________________________________________________________

SO, SOUPERS, please, if you are able to donate anything to the cause, please let me know and I?ll sign you up on my sponsor sheet. If you have already donated, would you be able to donate even ONE dollar more <3?

Or maybe you could join me on my fast, as long as you are healthy and able! It is a 36 HOUR fast which starts Next Friday, Nov 22, Midnight and runs until the Sunday, Nov 23 at Noon.

I'm hoping someone in my town, one I only recently moved to, joins me and we will be able to 'break fast' together. Please, keep the Philippines in your thoughts and/or prayers in the coming days as supplies begin to filter to them. May food and water reach them quickly.


I will keep you updated on my process.As I mentioned in my previous blog, I've never even attempted something like this before. All I know is that I HAVE to do SOMETHING.

Love sent to all

    TEARS misting my eyes.. oh thank you sweet sweet friends for supporting this endeavor ... :D .. I'd told myself that even if I inspire $25 from this, it is enough... Nette and Nikko, the plight of your homeland is on the hearts and minds of millions. Sometimes, it can feel like... what can I possibly do? What difference can my few dollars make? As a mom, I realized I must LIVE BY EXAMPLE. JIMBO, KIM, DEB, RUBEN, thank you for sponsoring me via your donations to front-line agencies! MWAA! I START THE FAST ON FRIDAY, MIDNIGHT, DEB... 36 Hours. I will keep very hydrated, take vitamins. I will allow myself water, vitamin water, consommé, herbal tea and some black coffee.

    oh almost forgot, not sure if you are aware of this-- the Canadian government will match donations given by individual Canadians to registered Canadian charities. This is ongoing until December 9, 2013. Thank you so much to the Canadian government for their generosity. Here's the link for it http://www.acdi-cida.gc.ca/acdi-cida/acdi-cida.nsf/eng/HEL-111012596-P4H ---- For those who want to donate to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) --- https://msf.donorportal.ca/MSFEN/Donation/DonationDetails.aspx?L=en-CA&G=21&F=545&T=GENER -- thank you very much!

    Hi Nikko, hon. When I found out that you and Nette were okay, I was turning cartwheels... and then the horror was revealed of what has happened to parts of your country. What I'm doing is so little, so very little.. love sent.

    Finally, I am able to comment!! My computer has been giving me such a headache these past few days, having major problems with it, keeps on hanging on me-- I literally take loong mins to load pages and when I'm about to comment, it hangs-- I hope this gets through, been trying to fix this computer. I saw your other blog Cyndi, and thank you so much for being so thoughtful, for what you are doing-- for all your efforts--it truly touches me, how you are sympathizing with the Philippines in your personal way. May I also request hat you read Carrie's blog or pls click on my latest post, thank you, and people can also donate to https://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/donate/onetime.cfm? All the little bit of sacrifices that we make do add up. Thank you from my heart <3!

    Again thank you so much, Cyndi, Ruben, Nette, Tim, Andrea, Debbie, Kim, Jimbo, Craig and so many other Soupers who have been with us Filipinos throughout all this. We will never forget how the world has been so generous, caring, empathizing with us. Much love to all.

    Believe me, I want to say so much more, but can't right now-- suffice to say, my heart overflows with the support from around the world, individuals, groups and nations, have you seen the photos of the Empire State Bldg? So beautiful.
  1. Date: 11/16/2013 11:06:00 PM
    It's me again, just to tell the Soupers that I did it from my phone and it's very easy. You just need a credit or debit card and a couple of minutes. So, don't be shy. : D NOW, regarding the fasting ... it wasn't me ... it was the slice of Margherita pizza with spicy salami ... and two kiwis. I couldn't do it. : P

    Typhoon Haiyan: Sustained winds of 195 MPH with gusts up to 235 MPH, making this storm as powerful as Hurricane Camille which hit the Mississippi Gulf Coast in 1968...Imagine a gigantic F5 tornado and you got the picture...

    i heard it was 315 mph, tim... no matter, this kind of typhoot hit the highest level at 5... enough already for us...
  1. Date: 11/16/2013 6:51:00 PM
    Copied from the internet...more about wind rotation----- This is due to the Coriolis Force, which is caused by the Earth's rotation. The Earth spins faster at the equator than the poles. Low pressure is due to areas of rising air, which then start to spin counter-clockwise due to the Coriolis Force. High pressure is tied to sinking air, which the Coriolis Force turns the air clockwise in the northern hemisphere, where hurricanes occur.

    One little fact which I'm sure most of you know...The difference between a hurricane and a typhoon is the wind rotation...A hurricane rotates counter- clockwise and a typhoon clockwise...The eastern quadrant of a hurricane is the most dangerous with winds blowing from south to north...that and the speed at which the hurricane travels is what causes tidal surge...The opposite would be true for a typhoon...
