I know we’re all busy preparing for Christmas but let’s not forget that ultimately, it’s all about giving, sharing, and helping others – especially those who need our help.
A few days ago, a flash flood took the people of Cagayan De Oro City, Iligan, and Dumaguete in the Philippines by surprise. It came like a thief in the night while most people were sound asleep. People who escaped were only able to save the clothes on their back. Some people lost their lives and won’t be able to celebrate Christmas like you and me.
Some of our BC Blogger friends, Grace, and Karen were from those areas and I’m very happy to report that they are alive and well. Unfortunately, like most of the people from their area they lost their belongings to the flood. I hope we can all drop them some message of comfort in their blogs.
I did my research on how we can all help. I found out that the best way we can donate is through Philippine Red Cross. You can donate as little as P5 and as effortless as getting your cellphone and typing some letters. So if you can spare a few pesos please grab your phone right away and donate. Don’t do it later lest you forget. Act now!
For Globe subscribers:
via SMS, c/o Red Cross – text RED <amount> and send to 2899 – valid donation amounts are P5, 25, 50, 100, 300, 500 and 1000 (For ex, RED 10). Transaction is free.
via GCASH, text DONATE<space><amount><space><MP
For Smart subscribers:
via SMS, c/o Red Cross – text RED <amount> and send to 4143 – valid donation amounts are P10, 25, 50, 100, 300, 500, 1000 (For ex, RED 10).
I am also appealing to you to make a blog post about this tragedy and encourage people to donate. Let’s not turn a blind eye because we can all help in our own little way. Other people are not aware of the gravity of their situation. I understand because Christmas is coming and everyone is busy. But if we can just inform and reach out to as many people as possible maybe we can make a difference.
