I just arrived back home and every Filipino Family based in Manila is affected in one way or another. Here are things you can do to help in your Own Personal Way…
1. Just Help Anonymously
Manuel L. Quezon III has a complete and up-to-date list on how to help Typhoon Ondoy victims. He has been on top of the digital space ever since the typhoon started. Good job, sir! 🙂
This Google Spreadsheet is also very helpful on How / Where to Help Out The Ondoy Victims.
2. Support your socio-civic organization’s efforts like Oplan Damayan from Manila Jaycees
Every Jaycees and Rotary organization (or other similar groups) has its own aid efforts. The Manila Jaycees (MJC) were in the middle of elections for the JCI Board for next year, and they were flexible enough to adjust their schedules to organize the relief efforts for the people of Marikina last night. I admire that; I might be more active with Jaycees next year…
[Oplan Damayan] “Junior Chamber International – Manila will continue to accept donations for the victims of Typhoon Ondoy from 9am – 9pm up to Tuesday Sept 29/at the Baypark Tent, Roxas Blvd, Manila, which is near Malate Church/ Max’s and Rajah Soliman Park.
