The Philippines need your help


Recommended Posts

I was talking with Ioshi (sp★rkle), a lovely member of this board and I think there's something you should know.


Lots of people died because of the typhoon in Philippines, but there are also lots of people in need now.


so if you can, please donate to the American Red Cross. Call 1-800-435-7669 and you'll help to the typhoon victims in Philippines :)

Some of you may have heard the news about the typhoon that struck the Philippines. We need your prayers. A lot of people are still missing and plenty of families has lost their homes. At the moment, its starting to rain again and we are told that another typhoon is about to hit the city. If you guys could also send help, please do... Thank you x

Things around here are still crazy, there are still people who's stranded on the roof of their houses since Saturday and its raining again, people crossing the electric lines... There are plenty volunteers, but the victims are vast... Everyone's caught off guard...


Aaaand, I don't know how these things work, but here's another link on how to donate thru Bank.

'Rescue workers are being overwhelmed by the scale of floods in the Philippines...Torrential rains from Tropical Storm Ketsana flooded the capital, Manila, and 25 nearby provinces on Saturday.


Some 80% of Manila was submerged, displacing 450,000 people. More than 115,000 are now in makeshift shelters.'

Thank you for all the thoughts.


Me and my family are alright. But having witnessed the aftermath of the typhoon has really made my heart sank. I'm going out on Wednesday to help repack the goods that our University will be getting. I'm still worried about those tunnels that I have to pass through on my way to Uni so to make sure (because our local Disaster Control said they would be able to suck the water out after 2 days), I will go there by Wednesday.


One of our fellow coldplayers got stranded too last saturday but he got home safely.


Its just really traumatic that everytime it starts to rain again people start to panic. I myself had been wanting to go home because it was mentioned in the weather forecast that another typhoon will hit our country..


Look at this news:




Its inspiring to know that amidst all of these devastation, some people are still willing to sacrifice their lives for others... in our local news there are 5 soldiers who died during the rescue mission. If they can do it, why can't we?

I’m not one for feeling helpless – and neither are the rest of the Filipinos around the world. When Typhoon Ondoy struck Manila this weekend and buried 80% of it underwater, everyone went online on Facebook and Twitter and started what my dad calls People Power 3.
