a christmas printable to help survivors in the Philippines


My heart has been heavy for the Philippines since Typhoon Haiyan hit last week.
Hundreds of thousands in need of help - food, shelter, clean water.
I want to do something. Can you help me?
I made this pretty Christmas printable and here's the plan:
I'm selling them for $10 and every penny will go to the relief efforts in the Philippines through Catholic Relief Services. 
You can read about their work here, and here's a little snippet from their website:

MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The timeliness of our response can mean the difference between life and death. A singular event like a typhoon, especially for those in impoverished parts of our world, can derail a family's stability, deplete a lifetime of savings and push them over poverty's edge. For larger communities, the devastation to infrastructure, economy and reserves can set back a generation. Catholic Relief Services has deployed its teams across across the Philippines' most heavily affected areas to determine the most pressing needs and how best to help. Your continued support allows us to reach more people, more communities, with vital help now—and to stay with them for as long as it takes to achieve a full recovery. A little goes a long way and we need your help.
If you'd like to take part, all you have to do is leave your Paypal address in the comments, 
or send me an email if you'd prefer to stay private.

Once you pay your invoice, I'll email you either a PDF or JPG file (your choice) and you can print as many as you'd like! Give it as gifts, hang it on your wall, spread some Christmas cheer, all while making a difference in the lives of those who really need our help. I will donate all proceeds directly to them on their website each day.
Will you consider taking part and spreading the word?
