Pactimo and HOPE worldwide to Support Victims of Typhoon Haiyan

January 16, 2014

Pactimo and HOPE worldwide partner to support the victims of typhoon Haiyan in the central islands of the Philippines.

On the morning of November 8, 2013, super typhoon Haiyan slammed into the central islands of the Philippines wreaking havoc throughout the region and displacing 4.3 million people. The greatest devastation would take place in the city of Tacloban, which would be literally destroyed by a direct hit. Within days the Philippine government would confirm over 4,000 people deaths and more than 1,600 missing. The United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has reported that 13.3 million are still in need of assistance as a result of Haiyan, a storm several times stronger than hurricane Katrina.

HOPE worldwide, an international NGO active in the Philippines and directly involved in the relief effort, responded quickly by mobilizing water, food, and lifesaving relief items to the affected communities from day one of the disaster. But due to many obstacles, continuing aid has been slow to trickle into the area, creating serious shortages in food, water, and medical supplies.  

To help meet these ongoing needs, Pactimo is launching sales of a special edition Philippines Country Jersey. The jersey bears the colors of the Philippines national flag with the words, “Stand Strong” on the back. 

Designed to aid HOPE worldwide as they rebuild homes and schools, and provide emotional support to families in the coming years, $25 per jersey and $15 per running tee will be donated to support their efforts.

17th Battlefield to Vermont - B2VT
17th Battlefield to Vermont - B2VT

April 17, 2017

June 10, 2017 will be the 17th annual edition of the B2VT ride (formerly known as the B2B). In 2014 the course was altered to accommodate the new start and finish points but still contained most of the original B2B course (but was even more hilly!). The 2017 B2VT Ride will continue to be one of the most challenging single day rides in New England. By design, it is not for everyone.  This ride is for cyclists who are physically and mentally tough, don’t whine, excel in the face of challenges, know the rules of the road and can ride 130+ miles to the finish safely and without their hands being held. While it is an epic ride, it is not for novice riders nor the faint of heart…

A Smart Investment In Women and Water
A Smart Investment In Women and Water

March 22, 2017

Together with Water.org, we have helped empower smart women like Aisyah through access to safe water. 

Aisyah is a wife, a mother, and a farmer. Most critical to all of her roles is time. Asiyah explained, “Time to work my rice fields means more money I can make for my family; our life is better.” As a smart business woman growing one of Indonesia’s most desired crops, Aisyah recognized lack of access to water at home as the main obstacle keeping her from having the time needed to farm.
