V&F Donation to the Philippines Emergency Relief

typhoon haiyan bbc After hearing about the devastating aftermath of the super-typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, we have decided to give 25% from our upcoming December 12th concert proceeds toward Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) emergency relief program.

Besides offering support, our aim is to raise awareness in our community about the scope of this disaster and to encourage everyone to make a donation, no matter how small.

More so, we hope that our culture across the globe will look closely into the science behind global warming, which indicates further catalyzation of much greater storms in recent years. This way we can start treating them as 'human induced disasters' rather than purely 'natural disasters' and begin to take our everyday lifestyle decisions more carefully in regards to how we contribute to all this.

Hope this message finds you and all our friends from the Philippines well.

See you all at Pyatt Hall in Downtown Vancouver on December 12th, starting 6pm.
