In Need of Every Help They Can Get

I don't know what it feels like to lose a home to a calamity, but I certainly feel for my countrymen, here in the Philippines, especially those in Visayas, ongoing through the spite of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda.

With almost a week's worth of news, I barely could look at the photos of the tragedy, but it drives me to do something for my fellow Filipinos, somehow, someway.

And with so many foundations laid out in the country, you could never go wrong with each institutions you decide to send in your help to.

So if you will donate, then please, these are the primary necessities needed:

Food (Canned Goods, Rice, Instant Noodles)
Hygiene Equipment
Toys (for the kids)

You could donate them to Sagip Kapamilya:

In my own little way, I hope that I could be of help. I will be donating a few things myself but of course, we'd also need your help with such a large cause. Thank you already Misfits, and to anyone who has viewed this post. Please pass it on to your friends who need immediate information and links. Thank you.

That's it for my post. My fellow Filipinos in Visayas, please do take care. You can survive this. I know you can. We'll constantly pray for your rehabilitation...
