Classic rockers Journey have donated $350,000 to support the relief effort in the Philippines following the devastating typhoon which ripped through the country last week.
More than 615,000 people were displaced by Super Typhoon Haiyan, the largest storm to ever make landfall. Manila native and Journey lead singer Arnel Pineda said the money would help to provide emergency food relief to those affected by the typhoon by supporting the United Nations World Food Programme.
The funds are being donated by Pineda, Journey and their team - promoter Live Nation Entertainment; Creative Artists Agency (CAA); and Manager John Baruck. Journey is calling on fans to join them and make urgent donations to support life-saving food relief for millions of Filipinos. Donations can be made at wfpusa.org/journey or by texting the word AID to 27722 to instantly donate $10.
“We're honored to have Journey's support and Arnel Pineda's leadership on this incredible donation for WFP's emergency relief in the Philippines," Hunter Biden, Board Chair of World Food Program USA, said. “Their support is going to make a real difference for so many Filipino children and families in need.”
