Last November 8, 2013, super typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan), said to be the strongest storm ever recorded to make landfall, battered major areas of the Philippines.  With thousands feared dead and more injured, and damaged infrastructure now reaching billions of pesos, numerous countries and organizations all around the world have scrambled and provided immediate assistance to those who were affected in the Visayas region and nearby areas.

Among those who have responded and made generous donations for the relief efforts are AND1 USA ($5000) and its partner advertising agency Catch New York (additional $1000).  Together they have raised roughly Php 250,000 and will be donating it to the victims in the Philippines. 

AND1 USA’s official Facebook account ( has also posted about donation options – such as the Philippine Red Cross’ website (click HERE) - for those who wish to help.  Check out some screenshots below.

On behalf of the Filipino nation, AND1 Philippines extends its sincerest thanks to the AND1 US team and Catch New York for the kind gesture.  This assist (and any upcoming help from individuals/institutions/nations for the Yolanda victims) only proves that the core values of teamwork, unity, and brotherhood (family) are ever present even in the most trying times.  Truly the strong linkage reflects AND1’s “No Borders, No Boundaries” tagline.

Mula sa lahat ng AND Juans...
