Hello, everyone! I know it’s been a very difficult two days for all of us here in the Philippines – more especially for those in Luzon. Typhoon Ondoy (international code name: Ketsana) has caused so much catastrophe in our country. It left thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, homeless, hungry and in pain. So far, a lot of deaths has already been reported and with another typhoon set to visit the country in the next 3 days (yes, unfortunately!), we really need to unite and help each other.
Even though we’re here in Mindanao, it is still our duty as Filipinos to help out. So please, I want to enjoin you all to please donate. The victims of Typhoon Ondoy need all the help they can get.
You can donate through these measures:
Donate to the Red Cross Rescue and Relief Operations. Text: Red AMOUNT to 2899 (Globe) or 4483 (Smart). The AMOUNT can be 10, 25, 50 or 100
You can also visit the nearest Department of Social Welfare and Development, Sagip Kapamilya or Red Cross office.
You can also send your donations via Paypal like I did. There’s this group called TXTPower that receives the donations and forwards the same to the Philippine National Red Cross. TXTPower’s Paypal email address is [email protected] – more details can be found in their official website. You may also donate via SmartMoney (5577-5144-1866-7103) or GCash 0917-9751092.
Now for anybody who wants to send donations but don’t have Paypal, you may CONTACT MINDANAOAN and I’ll make sure that the Red Cross receives your donations.
Thank you very much for your help and may the good Lord continue to bless you! Let’s go, Mindanao! Let’s do what we can to help our fellow Filipinos!
