Fil-Am kids raise $100,000 to rebuild Yolanda-hit school

By selling Haiyan bracelets for $10 (P450) each online, within their community and during local events, young Fil-Am sisters Malaya David (10) and Tala David (13) were able to raise funds to rebuild a typhoon-hit school in Tanauan, Leyte. The Haiyan bracelets were manually braided by Malaya and Tala using the colors of the Philippine flag – blue, red and yellow. Eventually calling their project the Malaya and Tala Fund (MTF), the two were able to raise $100,000 (PHP 4,512,025) to finance majority of the building reconstruction.
