“I was talking to my good friend Emma Tiebens about the devastation in the Philippines and I wondered how I could make a difference. Then I remembered my good friend Susan Ordona has been so amazing at rallying up people to help her devastated hometown. The result is my “Holiday Perfume Sale for A Cause”.
My Le Voyage eau de toilette and perfume came to mind. Le Voyage means the journey in French. I see this as the journey of the people in the Philippines. I see the perfume as symbolic of hope and rebuilding. LeVoyage eau de toilette and parfum will be on a Holiday Sale. 20% of the proceeds of Le Voyage sales, all natural perfumes and all offerings on my JoAnne Bassett website until Christmas will go towards Susan Ordonas’s cause…Click here to buy Le Voyage!

This is a heartfelt message from my good friend Susan Ordona:
A few days ago, one of the strongest typhoon in recorded history hit and devastated the province of Leyte.
As the big relief organizations are not able to reach Abuyog yet, the Abuyognons from Manila, USA and other countries have taken it upon ourselves to help out as much as we can with the limited resources we have. Without food, water, medicines and basic necessities, our town people are in a very tough survival situation.
We have to do something with utmost urgency as lives are at stake.
The generosity and kindness of the Abuyognons and friends are so evident when everyone just gives cash and checks so our groups in the Philippines could start buying supplies and hand deliver these to the people of Abuyog.
It is a big challenge to get those supplies to our town because of the road conditions, some are non-existent and some are barely passable and of course the dangers along the way. Even with those hurdles, the determination to get to Abuyog is there.
I have been receiving private messages and telephone calls from people wanting to help and donate, so I created this site to make it easier for people to do so. This is also for others who want to donate to our cause, no amount is too little…every little bit helps.
100% of all your donations will go to the people of Abuyog….for their immediate needs and beyond that….the rebuilding process as well.

This devastation of Tacloban is horrible. My hometown is about 50 miles south of Tacloban and was also affected along with the other towns along the road way. Using hashtag #Tacloban #Abuyog #TyphoonHaiyan really helped us get a streamline of information about a those keywords with the hashtags.
