Super Typhoon Yolanda

Honestly, last night was the first time that I was able to fully watch the news about the super typhoon Yolanda after it hit our country. And I am so lost for words. Thousands lost their homes, their loved ones and SO many were indeed affected. I am shocked upon seeing the damages caused by the super typhoon. My heart goes out to those who were affected. My heart was mostly wrenched when I saw those babies and kids' bodies already dead. I couldn't help but cry. I just couldn't bear the heartache. I just couldn't imagine the ordeal they went thru before they were gone. It was truly heart breaking! 

Let us help the victims. They really, really need our help. 

When my husband arrived last night, I told him that I would like to look into our old but still usable clothes (ours and Trev's) and donate it to the victims. It's just a small way for us to send help to them. My prayers are with them. 


I was looking for ways over the net on how we could send our donations and I found very useful links which I would also like to share here. Check out the links below. They have collated quite a good number of legit ways to help the victims of the super typhoon Yolanda.

Please click on the following links from Manila Shopper and When In Manila

If you are near any SM Supermall, you can also drop your donations at any of their branches via their Operation Tulong Express booth.

We are very near SM North EDSA, so that's most likely where we will send our donations once we finish packing it.

For more details about SM's Operation Tulong Express booth, you may like SM Supermalls FB Page here.

A lot has happened in just a few months. Recently, the war in Zamboanga, then the earthquake in Bohol and Cebu, and now the monster typhoon Yolanda that hit the central part of the Philippines. This is so sad. Let us help them in whatever way we can.

  5. I am happy you felt the urge to help. Our prayers are needed but we need to act after praying. Keep up the good work.

  6. Bayanihan... this is what we're known for. We can do this and I hope the government will act fast on this one. Lucy Torres is doing a massive job help in the city of Ormoc and Leyte already.

  7. Kami rin, we're trying to gather old clothes. Pero, I think it was Red Cross who said na pinaka-kailangan is money. I have no doubts naman na maraming donations; I just hope they go to the people who need them. :-(

  8. Read about the disaster. I hope that the victims get all the aid that they need and that it is not taken away by corrupted officials.

  9. The past three months have been so heavy for the whole country... and as a climax, Typhoon Yolanda has really taken its toll to the victims (Hope this is the last for the year!). We pray that the financial aid will be used properly and reach the people concerned.

  10. Agree, I really don't know what's with 2013.
    Our company already announced that they are accepting any donations (kind and cash). We will try to check on our unused clothes in the closet this weekend.
