The three restaurants total raised $10,000 to donate, and then a regular at Bar Centrale matched the amount that Bar Centrale raised so the total that will be donated to Save the Children for their typhoon relief is $12,500.
Save the Children gives children in the United States and around the world what every child deserves – a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When disaster strikes, they put children's needs first.
Save the Children's Typhoon Haiyan emergency teams are working around the clock on humanitarian relief for Filipino children and families. Thanks to a tremendous outpouring of support from generous donors, Save the Children has mounted a massive response in the Philippines. The response focuses on delivering the critical assistance children desperately need in the aftermath of a disaster of this catastrophic scale.
Overcoming very difficult conditions, Save the Children has started to deliver aid to the most vulnerable, already reaching thousands of people.
