#LUVisayas: How to help the victims of Typhoon Yolanda

I'll keep this short. Please read: URGENT! 

Our kababayans in many parts of Visayas are in desperate need of our help, and in response to this grave extraordinary situation, my friends from BookSail and I are collecting donations of  food and supplies. 

Since children and women are the most vulnerable in situations like this, we would like to prioritize their needs. 

Children's special needs
biscuits (not too sweet)
vitamin C (generics also accepted)

Women's special needs 
disposable panties
vitamin C

canned goods
bottles water


Hygiene kits:

For cash donations, please forward the money to Philippine Red Cross. Once deposited, please let me know so I can document and acknowledge your donation here in my blog. Thanks!

    1. oo nga eh, sana pwede kaso mukhang hirap pa din mapenetrate yung mga lugar till now.

  2. I will bring the donations from my office ASAP. :-)
