By now, many of you are already aware of how typhoon Sendong (international code name: Washi) have severely ravaged the country, particularly Mindanao.
A lot of relief efforts are now being done to help our countrymen in Iligan, Cagayan de Oro and other places in Southern Philippines.
But it seems there’s still a lot of work to be done.
That’s why I would just like to take this opportunity to do a little more and share with everyone the various ways which you could help.
First, Yahoo! has been able to compile an extensive list of ways to extend your donations. You can check it here: How to help Sendong victims
Meanwhile, Google has also initiated a user volunteer project to aid in the rescue efforts:
I know its the holidays and you might be busy with your Christmas preparations. If so, then do consider at least donating to Red Cross Philippines online or through SMS.
Just simply text RED [space] AMOUNT and send it to:
- 2899 for Globe. You can text 5, 25, 100, 300, 500 or 1000 for the amount
- 4143 for Smart. You can text 10, 25, 50, 100, 300, 500 or 1000 for the amount
Thank you very much.
