From the Philippine Red Cross Twitter account:
Sending help is easy! In fact it’s in your hands. It’s just a text away. Text RED<space>AMOUNT to 2899 (Globe) or 4143 (Smart)
There are many ways to help:
Many establishments are accepting donations in cash or in kind. Some even hold fundraisers, pledging to donate their profits for a day for the victims of Yolanda. If you live near UP, there are relief centers in the Kalayaan Residence Hall, College of Engineering Basketball Court, and Vinzons Hall, where you can drop off your donations. You can even volunteer in the sorting and packing of goods! Here’s a list of what is most needed at the moment:
- Food (canned or packed)
- Mosquito Nets
- Blankets and/or Comforters
Take care, everyone, and let’s continue to help out in any way we can. Don’t forget to pray for the safety and welfare of those affected. Hope this serves as an eye-opener about the very real and very threatening effects of climate change–we have to work to save the environment NOW!
