Friday November 29: Philippines Fundraiser

On Friday November 8, Typhoon Haiyan made landfall in the Philippines. The devastation would continue for several days, leaving the country in a state of emergency.

Currently the death-toll is 5,500 and rising, nearly 2,000 people are missing, and over 3.5 million people are displaced.

Haiyan is thought to be the strongest storm ever recorded when it hit land.

Help us raise $10,000!

On Friday November 29, every JJ Bean cafĂ© team will be donating their day’s total tips. JJ Bean will then match that donation up to $2,500.

Additionally, the Federal Government of Canada has set up a matching program, in which they will match donations made to approved charities until December 22.

So on Friday November 29, help us aid the people of the Philippines by donating through your local JJ Bean tip jar. All the proceeds will go directly to the Canadian Red Cross.
