JETS (Jewelry on Etsy Team) Will Not Forget the Philippines. Purchase Handmade Jewelry to Benefit Typhoon Haiyan Relief Effort

ABC News, Dec. 22, 2013: UN chief calls for more aid for Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan

"We must not allow this to be another forgotten crisis," Mr Ban told reporters a day after touring the storm-ravaged city of Tacloban.


Mr. Ban  said the UN had only achieved 30 percent of the $791 million in aid it had appealed for for relief  efforts in areas devastated by Typhoon Haiyan last month and is  appealing to the donor community, to speed up, and scale up their support."


The super Typhoon Haiyan ravaged the central Philippines on November 8, 2013,  triggering giant tsunami-like waves that swallowed entire sea-level communities.
The typhoon  left 6,102 people dead and 1,779 others still missing, according tothe most recent government tally. 

The JETS (Jewelry on Etsy Team) are not allowing this to become another forgotten disaster and you can help!  Check back here for our tally.  We are close to reaching our first goal of $1000.00 by January 1st, 2014 and we will keep the campaign running into the New Year. We are currently at $793.00 raised.

All of these jewelry pieces and more, directly benefit relief efforts in the Philippines. 
You can click from here to purchase or go to Etsy.com and search "JETTEAM Philippines " (no quotation marks) for items that are part of the program.
