My thoughts are with the typhoon victims of the Philippines. 

I have been quiet about this particular case for a while, because I had some family who were in the Philippines at the time when the typhoon hit and communication between us was lost for a while. Despite being close to Haiyan's tracks, they all survived and are doing well, but so many others are less fortunate.



If you wish to help donate, here are official and legitimate donation sites to help those who are in need:


Red Cross: www.redcross.org/

The Salvation Army: www.salvationarmy.org/

Care: care.org/emergencies/typhoon-h…



Please be aware of some phishing sites and scam emails that have popped up to claim that they are helping the victims of typhoon Haiyan, only to rob both you and the victims. Emails from people who claim to be representing helpers of Red Cross or those who are victims of the tragedy and so forth in the Philippines are all FAKE. Do not respond to personal emails from them, or even over the phone. Please only use the official websites listed above.

It touched me heavily in my heart. I love it so much and it just makes me happy. I cried but they were just mixed feelings really. I love this very very much.

Very, very beautiful and meaningful work! I'm glad that you finally made a piece for this; it seems like the news (at least in my area) has moved on, which isn't right at all. I will say that it's better to donate to the Salvation Army, however. I do not know how the Red Cross works in other countries, but when there is a crisis in the United States, they actually charge the people in need for blood (yes! that blood people donate with good-will for FREE), services, necessities! The Salvation Army is entirely non-profit with a focus on helping rather than lining their own pockets.

tl;dr
Glad you made a work for the Haiyan victims! I hope that people will find it in their hearts to keep helping out since there's still so much more work to be done.

Oh god it's beautiful. I'd love to make a witty and technical review of this, but just...damn.
