Update: Cookies & cider for Philippines typhoon relief

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!

    This mother daughter team is awesome. Imagine our delight when we saw this on the wsb tonight. Sorry we missed contributing. Good job! :-)

    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.

Sorry, comment time is over.
