Copies of VERSES TYPHOON YOLANDA, as well as a donation from the book's profits to date, were brought to this fundraiser. Book profits were donated to the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation & the Panay Bukidnon Tribes (click on the Fundraiser Flyer below to enlarge and see more details). The Foundation provides boats to fisherfolk who have lost their boats and depend on the sea for their livelihood; the Panay Bukidnon Tribes remain isolated in the highlands of the Philippines and need to rebuild homes and their School of Living Tradition which was decimated by the typhoon.
