Philippine Artists Donate their Art for #YolandaPH

It's such a beautiful sight to see everyone come together and do what they can to help the people devastated by Super Typhoon Yolanda (international code: Haiyan). While the F&B industry gives what it can by donating a portion (or all) of their sales to the victims of the Super Typhoon, the creative community are also doing their part in helping the cause by sharing their talent, photos and works of art.

Book tickets to your favorite show, get your photo taken, or buy your favorite work of art for a good cause.

La Pomme’s Sleep Angels

Apol Massebieau moved from the south of France to Southeast Asia to fulfill their dream of living in by the beach and hearing the waves when they wake up in the morning. She is selling her beautiful Sleep Angels filled with calming lavander flowers. Instead of paying her outright, send her a copy of the deposit slip of your donation to a charitable organization and she'll  send you an angel.

"I want you to buy one or more of my Sleep Angels. These are small soft dolls I make, with a sprinkling of sweet-smelling lavender flowers from France. They are for your or your child’s bed. The scent of lavender makes for better sleeping. You need to pay P650 for each. But instead of giving me the money, I want you to send the cash to an established and reputable organization working to send relief goods and services to the areas affected by typhoon Yolanda. Send me the receipt, deposit slip, or any proof of your donation, as well as your address. E-mail that to, and I will send you your angel. For being one yourself, you know."
