WJE Contributes to Red Cross Philippines Typhoon Appeal
A WJE staff member, whose mother is Filipino, recently shared her gratefulness for WJE's support for this effort. She pointed to one of her favorite Tagalog words—Bayanihan [ba-ya-NEE-han]. It means "people coming together, everyone coming together to help out." The term has its roots in the word bayan, referring to a nation, country, town, or community. The whole term bayanihan implies a spirit of communal unity or effort to achieve a particular objective.
In total, employee donations made to the American Red Cross Philippines Typhoon Appeal and matching contributions by WJE were nearly $25,000.
