Typhoon Yolanda: Ways to Reach Out

For those who have been messaging me on how they can help, here are options I gathered in the internet on how we can extend our help to our kababayans in need.
The devastation brings tears to my eyes. The videos, the interviews, the call for help is just too overwhelming. I have cousins in Ormoc City and until now communication is intermittent :(
Let us pray for the survivors (we all need a lot of that these days) and let us help anyway we can.

1. Through GMA Network: 


2. Through Red Cross: 
You can also go to this link to place your donations through Red Cross:

I tried sending donations through text and followed the instructions below. It's a quick way to help and they will send an acknowledgement.

SMS and G-Cash

Text REDAMOUNT to 2899 (Globe) or 4143 (Smart)
You can donate the following denominations:
Globe: 5, 25, 100, 300, 500 or 1000
Smart: 10, 25, 50, 100, 300, 500 or 1000
