Many Ways to Help Typhoon Sendong Victims


I was so disturbed the other night. All I could think of was the calamity in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan. I have distant relatives who live there and thankfully no one was harmed. There was this urge for me to help out in any way I can despite the distance.

I have never been this grateful for social media and the internet. Twitter was a key tool. There were so many ways one can help through donations in cash and in kind.

If we were living in the Philippines, I'd cancel/return all Christmas gifts then just donate the money to the victims. 

Donate to Red Cross now. This is the easiest way for those living abroad with a Paypal account.

You may donate cash to buy underwear and slippers for the victims through Rock Ed.

I salute LBC for all their hardwork. You may leave your donations in kind at any LBC branch in the Philippines and abroad. Makes me wish they have a branch in Thailand.

Seriously, there is no excuse why one cannot help out.

Let us be a blessing. It feels awesome to give.

  1. Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I hope that preventative measures can be put in place soon. One thing that can be done which costs nothing is each individual take responsibility for their garbage and put it where it belongs instead of throwing it all over the streets, rivers, and everywhere else.

  2. I felt so sad about this catastrophic incident, I hope that people of the Philippines will then realize the value of our dear nature… stop illegal logging before the whole country plunge as a river…
