As many of you are aware, the Philippines was recently struck by one of the most powerful and devastating storms recorded in human history. Having leveled many cities and killing thousands of Philippine nationals, Typhoon Haiyan has left an indelible mark on the country.
As a small start, the New York Film Academy has donated $10,000 to the relief fund. In addition, we would like to reach out to our community to help aid relief efforts overseas. We will be placing a donation box at each front desk of 17 Battery Place as well as at the front desk at Union Square. We will be accepting cash (and coin) donations which we will then donate to Direct Relief, the non-profit emergency response and global health organization with a special initiative for this relief effort.
Starting Monday, November 18th through Friday November 22nd, we will be collecting cash donations. Let’s pitch in and make a big statement from the entire NYFA community.
Thank you all so much for your support, every penny helps!
