What can we do to help Super Typhoon Haiyan’s victims in Philippines?
SLAPPY CAKES branches all over the world (Portland, Maui, Tokyo, Philippines, and Singapore) are collecting money donations to help Super Typhoon Haiyan’s victims in Philippines.
"Typhoon Haiyan is one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall and its impact for Filipinos has been devastating. Current U.N. and Philippine government estimates indicate more than 9.5 million people are affected by the typhoon in nine regions across the country. Additionally, nearly 620,000 people have been displaced from their homes and communities. All of this comes on top of displacement as a result of fighting in September and the Bohol earthquake of Oct. 15. The humanitarian response is stretched and needs support."

All donations collected at Slappy Cakes will be sent to Philippines Red Cross. Our 3 restaurants in Manila are collecting material goods such as food and clothes besides the monetary donations.
