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.
