Phillipines Relief Efforts

Greetings from Salesian Missions! 
Salesian Missions is in close contact with our confreres in the Philippines and with the Salesian NGOs of the Don Bosco Network In working out a coordinated response to assist the victims of the typhoon.
Thanks to all those confreres, communities, and apostolates who have promoted the Salesian Missions Philippine Appeal Link on their websites, email blast, and social communications vehicles (FaceBook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.)!  So far over 94% of our relief donations have come thru the web. Thanks ever so much for your help in spreading the word.
We have a dedicated link for our relief efforts which is  http:/www.salesianmissions/typhoon.  In whatever way you could spread knowledge of this link would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks to the communities that have already sent  in contributions for the funds and for the planned fundraisers in the various apostolates.  On behalf of our confreres in FIS and all our suffering brothers and sisters in the Philippines, many and sincere thanks for all your efforts.
PS: If there was a need for our Salesian Presence to street children in the Philippines before the typhoon, how much more will there be after the typhoon with so many children having lost their parents and families.   This video might help to show the impact that the Salesians in FIS have on street children  http:/
