#TyphoonOdette: Shop, dine, and workout for a cause
It's been almost a month since Typhoon Rai, locally known as Typhoon Odette, badly tore through the communities and regions of Surigao, Bohol, Cebu, Palawan, and Leyte in December 2021, and many of those affected are still struggling to find food and water.
If you're wondering how to be more helpful in these trying times, one great way is to support brands giving back.
Womenswear brand Artisanat Handmade is donating all profits from their limited edition Lucy Top (P1,295) from their Holiday collection to communities affected by Typhoon Odette in Bohol.
Donations are also welcome thru GCash (0917-3191782, Rica Rosario Borja) or BDO (006240101418, Rica Rosario Borja).
From Jan. 5 to 31, 100% of the proceeds from Strange Mercy's Every Mercy - Mikee T-shirt, Form Follows Feeling - Disco Tie Dye (P1,290), Form Follows Feeling - High Beam (P990), ll Feelings Welcome - Umami (P990), and All Feelings Welcome - Home Team (P990) shirts will be donated to @lotus_shores_siargao and @lokallab to help in their relief operations in Siargao.
Disenyo del Sur
Disenyo de Sur is calling customers to help "keep the art alive" by helping local artisans and weavers who have been affected by the typhoon in Argao, Cebu.
When you buy jewelry from their All That Glitters pieces from their Floralia and Themyscira line, all proceeds will go to the said community in Cebu.
"With your help, keepers of a centuries-old handloom weaving technique, and makers of our Padayon brand’s modern malongs and blankets, may slowly rebuild their homes and lives," they wrote.
Yoga for a cause
DJ and yoga teacher Katrina Razon is hosting a benefit yoga event this Jan. 15, 5 pm via Zoom.
No need to purchase everything, just send her a screenshot of your donation to @SaveSiargao or savesiargao.com and wait for the Zoom link.
The Standard Group
Buy from any The Standard Group brands (Yabu, Ippudo, Elephant Grounds, and Kiwami) via GrabFood this Jan. 13 to 15, 2022 and they will donate 100% of their profits from the platform to those affected by the typhoon.
