Gin Blossoms appeal to their fans for donations to Philippine Red Cross in wake of Typhoon Haiyan. Proceeds from their Thursday, Nov 21st, Stage 48 performance in NYC will benefit those affected.
Three days ago, Typhoon Haiyan (also known as Yolanda) hit the eastern seaboard of the Philippines and tore across its central islands, bringing wind-speeds close to 200 miles per hour and a storm surge of 20 feet. We are only beginning to understand the scale of destruction, but Haiyan is estimated to have claimed thousands of lives, and the physical and economic damage will be both widespread and long-lasting. The Philippine Red Cross helps provide immediate shelter, food, blankets, hygiene kits and essential non-food supplies to displaced survivors; they estimate that nearly 20,000 families are currently sheltered in over 300 evacuation centers.
Gin Blossoms would like to encourage their friends and fans to make a monetary donation at the following link: ushare.redcross.org.ph/ "Any amount our fans and friends can afford will offer much relief to affected families fast" says Robin. "We performed in Manila less than a month ago. It's so tragic that this has effected so many of those wonderful people" says Jesse.
The Philippine Red Cross have localized on-the-ground networks and knowledge of local communities and their needs. As a result, they are often best positioned to extend the supply chain of relief to the hardest hit local communities quickly and accurately.
"We hope everyone will come to Stage 48 this coming Thursday, Nov 21st for a Rockin' fun night and help the Philippine people in need!" - Robin Wilson
