Update: Cookies & cider for Philippines typhoon relief

November 16, 2013 at 11:52 am | In Gatewood, How to help, West Seattle news | 8 Comments

From Alex in Gatewood, whose 8-year-old daughter, she explains, “wanted to do something to help the people in the Philippines”:

If you’re in West Seattle this afternoon (Sat Nov 16th, 1-3ish) please stop by the corner of California & Portland (up the hill, south of Morgan Junction). Enjoy fresh-baked, homemade cookies & warm spiced cider. Donations will go to the Red Cross for Philippines relief.

Our ongoing list of West Seattle ways to help with typhoon relief (including a concert/service tomorrow) is here.

ADDED 2:42 PM: Still time to go get cookies and cider. Photos shared by Alex:

3:51 PM UPDATE: Over, and successful! Alex’s update:

We raised $272.31 for Philippine relief efforts. This amount will be matched by me, and the full amount donated to the Red Cross ($544.62). Thank you to everyone who supported us today!

  8. Thanks all – it was a family effort. I just did the posting & the matching (mom). Dad did the fabulous baking. The girl did the sales. We all learned a lesson in giving.
