One thing I now readily realize is that I travel so much that many of my online friends, followers, and even my family don’t know where I am from week to week. They’ll often ask: Are you at home? Still traveling? Where did you go again? Where ARE you?
So, now I try to write about my upcoming journeys as many places online as I can leading up to my trips to avoid any confusion.
That said, I am traveling to the Philippines with World Vision USA, a Social Good Moms’ partner and one of four organizations Bill and Melinda Gates recommended as an organization to support last year. I leave on Monday to report on World Vision’s yearlong response to Typhoon Haiyan. I’ll be there for about a week not counting travel time. I won’t begin reporting until next Thursday. The one-year anniversary of Haiyan is Saturday, November 8. I’ll try my best to repost all of my articles and photos during US time. There is a 12-hour difference from eastern time.
I look forward to seeing what World Vision has done since Haiyan slammed into the Philippines and killed 6,100 people and caused hundred of millions of dollars in damage. There are still 1,100 people who are unaccounted for.
I will travel with members of World Vision USA staff as well as a media team. You can follow along on Twitter at #WVBloggers as well.
