Our second event! The first one was a great success, and we truly hope to continue the trend, and get as many people out as possible. Please share with your friends and family and your community. The more people we bring, the more money we can raise to send and feed families who have lost ALL resources on their islands.

Here are the organizations we are donating to, as well as the main Facebook page for our fundraiser!

4 Events in the 4 PDX Quadrants!

Portland 4 the Philippines is arranging a 4 part, 4 venue, 4 date fundraiser to benefit relief efforts in the Philippines through direct contact with loved ones which know already living, surviving, and helping to assist with recovery already located in the Philippines. There will be 4 events over the course of Dec and Jan, along with online fundraising to help keep donation options available to those attending, and those who may not, but still want to help.

This is an attempt to get direct assistance to those who are already there to help without going through massive corporate offshore donation centers such as Red Cross, who prove time and time again to be unreliable, and never enough. There is no middle men in this fundraiser. All art is donated, all venues were offered freely, all volunteers are unpaid, all entertainment is volunteers. 100% of all funds raised will be going directly to the non-profits specified already located in the Phillipines.
