Shelterbox and the Philippines Typhoon
November 12th, 2013
Dear Rotary Club Past President,
We are sending this information to you as we do not have the contact information of your current President in hopes that you will share it with him/her.
As a Rotary International project Partner, ShelterBox is deeply engaged in the response to multiple disasters occurring around the globe- including the devastating Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the Philippines on the weekend. 
We would ask if you might consider posting the following brief article on your website, and social media to highlight the great need in The Philippines and to encourage donations to ShelterBox to allow us to help the many victims" 
ShelterBox is there. Super Typhoon Haiyan is one of the biggest storm to ever make landfall anywhere. There are already estimates of over 10 000 dead and tens of thousands of homes destroyed and close to 1 million people displaced.  ShelterBox currently has a response team based in The Philippines and a second team has arrived. They are assessing needs associated with Super Typhoon Haiyan and distributing aid. ShelterBox responds instantly to disasters around the world by providing emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies that families need to survive in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. ShelterBox is also currently responding to the Syrian crisis and an earthquake in Pakistan. Help ShelterBox to provide shelter, warmth and dignity to those who have lost everything. ShelterBox is a Rotary International Project Partner. For more information and to donate  please visit or call 1-855-875-4661The Canadian Government will match, dollar for dollar, donations made to ShelterBox for the Typhoon Haiyan Appeal.
We will continue to keep you up-to-date about our efforts to provide emergency shelter, clean water and other essential supplies to vulnerable families left homeless from Typhoon Haiyan.  In the meantime, you may be interested in this CNN Anderson Cooper interview of Rotarian and ShelterBox Response Team Member Mark Dyer from district #6450:
Should you have questions about this deployment, our work to shelter Syrian refugees or other disasters to which we are responding with the help of Rotarians, please let me know. 
Thank you,
