FBB members and our community gave more than $124,000 last quarter to improve the lives of people around the world. Three of our featured charities, Roots and Wings International, Water Ecuador, and Apopo, will receive grants of more than $10,000 each. And your donations to our Humanist Crisis Response fund drive for immediate needs in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan surpassed all of our previous projects, raising $63,000 for Citizens’ Disaster Response Center and Team Rubicon.
