Super Typhoon Yolanda Rips Through the Philippines

On November 8th Super Typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan) made landfall in the Philippines. Though many were aware of the strength the storm possessed, few could actually imagine the destruction it would cause. Thousands have lost their homes and businesses, many cities are still without power, and numerous people are missing. The Philippine Red Cross estimates that at least 1,200 people were killed by the storm, but that number could grow as officials make their way to remote areas made nearly inaccessible by Yolanda.

In an effort to assist those affected, Forever Giving has decided to make a donation of $50,000 to the Philippine Red Cross to aid in the recovery and rebuilding of the affected areas. While Red Cross relief efforts are well underway, blocked roads, destroyed infrastructure and downed communication lines are making the response particularly challenging. They have been working tirelessly to gain access to these areas and continue to push towards survivors who are in need. Forever Giving's donation can hopefully assist in getting materials around the country and in these especially difficult conditions.

In addition to the $50,000 donation, Forever Giving has also dedicated our Paypal account to the Philippines from now through the end of November. Every dollar donated to our Paypal account will go towards the disaster relief in the Philippines. You can donate here.

We want to thank everyone who chooses to donate to Forever Giving. Because of you we are able to "Make a Difference" in the world. Salamat!

Red Cross Update

Today has been an exciting day for Forever Giving. We have chosen a new organization to donate to...which will be announced soon! And we also received a very nice letter from the Red Cross that we thought we would share with you all.

"Dear Forever Giving,

As we commemorate the one-year mark since Superstorm Sandy devastated the East Coast, I'd like to again thank you and Forever Living Products for your generous support, both financially and with in-kind product, that allowed the American Red Cross to help tens of thousands of people affected by Superstorm Sandy's devastation. We greatly appreciate all that you did and do to help those during times of need!! Your support helped the Red Cross be there with food, shelter, relief supplies and support for months after the storm hit, and we are continuing to help people recover and rebuild. We have helped families start over in a new place to live, provided financial support to people working to put their lives back together, enabled residents to clean out mold from their water-logged homes and given emotional support to those who have been put through so much."

Forever Giving is touched to know that our contribution to the Red Cross is still helping people out.

Forever Giving Mobilizes Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief


Traveling nearly 1500 miles from Texas to New York, a truckload filled with Forever Natural Spring Water and Forever Fast Break nutritional bars donated by Forever Giving is en-route to one of the hardest stricken areas in New York by Hurricane Sandy. The supplies will be dispersed among 200 American Red Cross emergency response vehicles that are beginning to circulate through some communities; distributing meals, water and snacks to the millions of people who have been displaced by the natural disaster. With access into many areas still difficult, Forever Giving teamed up with Forever Living to gain the FEMA clearance needed to deliver the supplies to the areas in which American Red Cross needs them the most.

“We’re mobilizing more disaster workers, response vehicles and relief supplies now,” said Charley Shimanski, Senior Vice President of Disaster Services for the Red Cross. “The Red Cross response is already very large and could be our biggest U.S. disaster response in the past five years. It will be very costly and we need the public’s help.”

In addition to the relief supplies donated, a significant financial contribution was made to the American Red Cross today by Forever Giving to help provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by the disaster.

“Following the devastating storm, many of our colleagues have been without power for the past few days throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast areas,” said Gregg Maughan, President of Forever Living Products International. “By partnering with Forever Giving to support the American Red Cross, we are able to join their efforts to provide immediate assistance to the millions of Americans who really need it.”
