Relief Effort for Philippines (Typhoon Odette/Rai): Critter Hunter

Critter Hunter (Justin Carmack) is a YouTuber I started following several months ago. He’s a professional scuba diver and typically can be found around the world finding different marine life species to capture on camera.

He lives in the Philippines with his wife and is currently covering the aftermath of Typhoon Odette (the local name for the typhoon; others are calling it Typhoon Rai). From the video I linked below, he commented that European and American media are not covering this natural disaster and the Filipinos are suffering as a result from a lack of help and donations. From a quick search, I can see there is some coverage, but it appears limited and possibly delayed. I personally read the news fairly often, and I had not seen this come across my radar. Justin also may not be seeing any media/assistance to the areas where he’s currently assisting, which is obviously a problem. If we’re not aware, we can’t help.

I made a donation earlier this morning to Justin’s PayPal account to help in the relief efforts. From the video below, you can see they are organizing rice and water donations, and helping to rebuild a community center, among other initiatives. He says in the video below he’s drained his own bank account to help the villagers around him. He’s been chronicling their efforts the past week to help spread awareness.

If you can, please consider making a donation to Justin’s PayPal account located here. Prayers I’m sure are also appreciated and as I remind people, always free. You can also share this blog, or Justin’s YouTube channel, as well. I don’t know Justin personally, but from his videos documenting this tragedy, you can clearly see his heart.
