Let's all help!!!

I could not fathom how Sendong made his way thru Cagayan de Oro and nearby places. Looking at the pictures from blogs, facebook photos and newspapers, I could barely look straight at it, let alone read about how many people, especially children, have died.








My heart goes out to the people affected by the tropical storm. Let's all help!




Here are some of the ways we can do so. I got this from Drowning Equilibriums: Sendong Aftermath: Let's All Help!


1. Red Cross: to help, send RED to 4143 (Smart) and RED to 2899 (Globe). * Smart subscribers may send financial help to the Philippine Red Cross through text.
