DaYuum Taking Action Car Meet for Philippine Disaster Relief

Huntington Beach, CA, by W&HM - The Haiyan Typhoon disaster has brought many of the Filipino communities together to show their love and support to the homeland on the other side of the globe.  DaYuum hosted the Taking Action car meet to show their solidarity of the effort.  We arrived early so we only captured a glimpse of the cars showed up there.  Nonetheless, some of the works are pretty cool and unique too.  Through many of such petite donation charity, it shows the strong combined force as a whole, to help disaster relief efforts and true humanity regardless of borders or methods of how it is done.
