I was at our book club’s Christmas party last weekend and was a bit sad about the rain that afternoon that stopped us from running around the place. Little did I know that the Southern part of our country was already being ravaged by flash floods and rains brought out by Typhoon Sendong (International name: Washi). :(
I know how it feels to be a victim of that. And this is harder because Christmas is just around the corner. So, in the spirit of giving, I ask the few of you who read my blog to share whatever you have to help in the relief efforts. Let’s help make their Christmas a little better for them despite the circumstances, yes? I’ve always believed that no one is too poor not to be able to share anything to anyone, especially to those who really need it.
For people in the Philippines, you can send your donations to the Philippine National Red Cross through text message (I already donated yesterday, and it’s very, very easy):
Text RED<space>AMOUNT to 2899 (Globe) or 4143 (Smart)
Text DONATE<space>AMOUNT<space>4-digit M-PIN<space>REDCROSS to 2882
You can donate the following denominations:
Globe: 5, 25, 100, 300, 500 or 1000
Smart: 10, 25, 50, 100, 300, 500 or 1000
If you’re not in the Philippines and you still want to help (please!) or if you want to donate in kind, you can donate through the Philippine National Red Cross site. All LBC branches are also accepting donations, so you can drop off your in-kind donations (clothes, food, medicine, etc) there as well. Thank you!
