Amount is biggest in history of Fil-Am fund raisers in MI
The amount of the fund donations received by Filamcco Foundation for the victims of typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) in the Visayas regions of the Philippines breached the $100,000 mark as of Dec. 23, 2013.

Meanwhile, it was reported that a group of Filipino-American doctors in Michigan also conducted a fund raiser for the typhoon victims and has already collected $80,000.

A list of the donations prepared by Filipino community leader Tony Kho, who is coordinating the fund drive launched by the Filipino American Community Council (FILAMCCO) through the Filamcco Foundation, showed that more than 500 companies, organizations, groups and individuals donated to the fund-raising campaign.

The total collected amount o $100,675.95 is the biggest in the history of Filipino-American fund-raising campaigns in Michigan for disaster victims in the Philippines. The big amount will be very difficult to equal or surpass in the future, Kho said.

The Filamcco Foundation headed by Dr. Ernestina Mac will continue to solicit funds for the typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) victims until next month, it was learned.

In the past, the highest amount of fund donations collected in Michigan for Philippine disaster victims was $29,000, which was raised for the victims of typhoon “Ondoy” that hit Metro Manila in 2009.

The bulk of the monetary donations will be turned over to the Sagip Kapamilya Foundation, the charity arm of ABS-CBN which is the biggest radio-TV network in the Philippines. A portion will be handed over to the Salvation Army.

The amounts of the donations ranged from $5 to $7,000. The donor with the biggest amount ($7,000) of donation is Cosmo Solutions Technology, Inc.

Kind-hearted people may still send their monetary donations to the Filamcco Foundation by mailing their checks to: PACCM, 17356 Northland Court Park, Southfield, MI 48075. The checks should be payable to: Filamcco Foundation.

They may also send their donations through PayPal. For inquiries about the PayPal remittance, donors are asked to email Ryan Rosario at ryanrosario664@gmail.com.

Among the groups supporting the fund raiser are the Ang Bisaya of Michigan (ABM) and the Waray-Waray International Organization (WWIO). Most members of these two groups hail from the Visayas regions.

The fund drive is being coordinated by Becky Tungol and Kho, president and executive director, respectively, of the Philippine American Community Center of Michigan (PACCM).

Aside from the financial donations, relief items such as clothes, canned goods, soaps, toothbrushes and towels were also donated by people who took pity of the typhoon victims. The relief goods were brought to PACCM where these were repacked by volunteers.

Kho said at least 200 “balikbayan” boxes of donated items have been brought to PACCM. LBC Mundial Corp., a balikbayan-box company, is shipping the boxes to the Philippines free of charge.

In a related development, Attorney Marcus Evangelista reported about the doctors’ fund drive during the celebration of Rizal Day last Dec. 21 at the MGM Grand-Detroit.
