(New York, NY December 11, 2013)  FAM (Filipino American Museum) presents the second in a series of fundraisers for Typhoon Haiyan relief: an online holiday shop with all proceeds to go to LIFESAVER®. 

This follows a successful inaugural benefit that took place on November 21st called ‘Bayanihan Spirit’ which raised $11,000 for National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON). The online store (visit shop.filipinoamericanmuseum.com) launches on December 12th at 12:00am and closes on December 23rd at 11:59pm.

Items will be eligible for delivery by Christmas day; orders within New York State must be made by December 23rd for next day delivery, orders out of New York State will need to be made by December 20th for delivery by December 25th.
 
The proceeds will benefit LIFESAVER , a company founded after the wake of the December 2004 Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The lack of safe drinking water inspired the founder Michael Pritchard to invent the company’s first product, the LIFESAVER bottle. Around the world, LIFESAVER systems have helped hundreds of thousands of people produce safe sterile drinking water. Responding to an appeal from Oxfam and Save the Children, LIFESAVER has already shipped an initial 3,500 jerrycans to the Philippines as part of the Department for International Development’s Rapid Response Facility. These jerrycans are capable of providing 70 million liters of clean water to those in desperate need. FAM’s contribution will enable more vital LIFESAVER equipment to be sent out to the Philippines and save thousands more lives currently at risk.
