We have a unique opportunity to guarantee these funds will be used to help people who have been affected by the typhoon.

GoAbroad.com, in conjunction with the GoAbroad Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is launching an official Causes campaign to provide direct relief to Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) survivors in Tacloban City.

GoAbroad.com hopes to promote the campaign nationally and globally to raise funds that will directly support the people and families that have been affected by the devastating storm.

“We have a unique opportunity to guarantee these funds will be used to help people who have been affected by the typhoon,” said Kayla Patterson, the GoAbroad.com employee leading the campaign.

The Founder and CEO of GoAbroad.com, Troy Peden, and his family live and work in Tacloban City and have been using their house and the company’s office as a refuge for staff, families, and media reporters. The Peden family has been distributing relief supplies, and has already been able to receive donations from an earlier campaign to continue providing relief in the community.

“I am overwhelmed by the generosity and dedication from our U.S. counterparts. Every little bit helps as we try to navigate rebuilding the Tacloban community,” Peden stated.

The Causes campaign focuses on GoAbroad.com’s personal connections in Tacloban and the people that live there. Secure donations can be made to the GoAbroad Foundation, a tax-deductible NGO that has been supporting projects in and around Tacloban for over a decade. The foundation works closely with Volunteer for the Visayans, a volunteer organization that is located in the housing project of Bliss in Tacloban City.
