In the wake of Typhoon Haiyan, Foundation Beyond Belief’s Humanist Crisis Response program is collecting donations in support of CITIZENS’ DISASTER RESPONSE CENTER, a community-based relief organization in the Philippines that is working to provide food, water, medicine, shelter kits, sleeping kits, and hygiene kits. As of Wednesday morning, the FBB community has raised more than $40,000 for CDRC’s relief efforts. 100 percent of all donations will be forwarded to CDRC throughout the course of the drive.
