Bangon Pilipinas

It breaks my heart to watch the news, my heart goes out to those who are deeply affected by Typhoon Yolanda. The Filipino spirit maybe waterproof, but everyone of us has a breaking point and we all need to help in any way we can. It's hard to live a life where everything, is taken away from you in a blink of an eye. I know that our fellowmen is resilient enough to withstand this disaster and together, we can make a difference.

There are million ways to help and it makes me happy that everyone, all over the world is willing to lend a hand to our fellowmen in the Visayas region. From the bottom our our hearts, Maraming, maraming salamat.

Here are some of the organizations who are actively involved in disaster relief operations:

Please also read up on this link for a detailed list on where you can drop off your donations and please remember to use these hashtags properly. Please do not use this together with your selfies to gain more likes or for your online shop to gain followers. That's just rude and may God bless your soul.

World Vision PH , an organization close to my heart is also accepting donations for Yolanda Relief Response. If you are living in abroad, you can visit this link to donate via credit card.

My Alma Matter, UST is also accepting relief goods. They have an organized system on where you'll donate your goods. For inquiries on how to help in cash or if you want to help re-pack the goods, kindly contact them as well.

I also found out about an organization that called 1000Bearhugs that collects stuffed toys for the children of Typhoon Yolanda survivors. This is a great way to help lighten their burden and paint smiles on their faces again. They've been through so much and your new or pre-loved huggables can give them a feeling that everything will be alright again. Pick up points can be located here.

Muni PH is also collecting NICE clothes or bags for selling during the Moonleaf Tea Shop Not Another Planner launch.  Shed light on your old clothes or refresh your wardrobe with new pieces for a cause. In one way or another, you'll feel good because you are able to help out. :)

The Katha Magazine team will also be present during the Muni x Moonleaf Planner launch. We'll have a booth where all the proceeds will be donated to the relief operation funds. Please also stay tuned as the Katha Magazine Team is also brewing up something to help the survivors of Typhoon Yolanda.

Bangon Pilipinas!
