Typhoon Haiyan Relief Pancake Breakfast

Typhoon Haiyan affected a total of 9.5 million people across the Philippines -- and displaced at least 600,000 -- when it slammed into the country on Friday, according to the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. Survivors were described as being in desperate need of clean drinking water and food. "In some cases the devastation has been total," Secretary to the Cabinet Rene Almendras told a news conference. The folks in the Philippines are in dire straits and it's now up to us in the Puget Sound region to step up and help them out.

So, in our tradition of helping others, from the Japanese Tsunami victims to folks of Wayne, Nebraska, we are having a pancake breakfast to raise funds for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. All proceeds from this pancake breakfast will be divided between the International Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders. So please come on by, have breakfast with us, and please donate for the cause.

If you can't make it, you make donations to the following organizations:

Besides pancakes, we may serve some traditional Filipino breakfast dishes: chorzio, tocino, Barako coffee, Jackfruit, and sinangag (garlic fried rice) 
Here are some recipes:

    We had a great time at the pancake breakfast today. We raised $1,375 for Typhoon Haiyan Relief! I like to thank everyone who help make this a great event and help the folks in the Philippines recover from the disaster. If weren't able to make it, you can still make donations to the following organizations:

    I was going to try to make this but realized that my volunteer gig in Issaquah is creating a time crunch for me. Sorry! But I did donate to the American Red Cross for this relief effort. Great idea.

    The Filipino Community of Seattle has asked for donations. They have request toiletries (shampoos, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush) and nonperishable food items. See their website for more information:
