Volunteering in the Philippines

As many readers are aware, a few months after the earthquake and tsunami struck the Tohoku region of Japan, I volunteered to assist with cleanup efforts in Ofunato with All Hands, one of the few foreign-run organizations to make it past the Japanese bureaucracy. It was a remarkable experience, seeing the kind of people who dedicate a huge part of their lives to helping others in need, one I hope to repeat with the news that All Hands' project Cagayan de Oro in the Philippines has been extended:

This time, it's not simply a matter of convenience: All Hands will NOT accept volunteers for this particular project extension who can't raise enough funds to cover costs ($25/day). If any of my readers want to donate to help send me to Project CDO, even if it's just a few dollars or Euros, please, please, please link the click below or send it directly to All Hands on my behalf.
