Iâ€™m sure youâ€™re all aware of what happened to typhoon-hit areas in Northern Mindanao and Visayas over the weekend. Three cities were badly hit and affected by massive floods and landslides. If you have clothes, food, bottled water, medicine and money to spare for the survivors, you may do so by sending them to trustworthy organizations that will transmit your donations to evacuation centers. Thousands have perished and many more languish in evacuation centers. It may take a while before evacuees recover.
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve, many are expected to buy fireworks and firecrackers to celebrate, but instead of spending so much money on fireworks, maybe you can give them to typhoon victims. Also, you can share anything that you no longer need like school books, notebooks and pencil, old jansport bags for school children. It will definitely make a lot of difference to people in need especially kids.
DONATE, DONT DETONATE (NO FIREWORKS FOR SENDONG)
With the recent devastation in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan, we urge everyone especially those in the Sendong areas (Iligan and Cagayan de Oro) to refrain from using fireworks this Christmas and New Year. Instead of burning and blasting money into the air, use the money instead to DONATE to relief efforts for Sendong ravaged areas. Let us put resources to GOOD USE, and to help others. We pray for… SENSITIVITY : no reason to be loud and flashy in our celebrations while people remain homeless, grieving and hungry. We can still celebrate CHRISTMAS in the true meaning, by giving instead of blasting away. Below are some ways to help.
If you cant donate cash or relief goods, DONATE by forwarding this facebook site/link /LIKE to all of your friends http://www.facebook.com/nofireworksforsendong
This way, we can get more people to campaign for a silent, solemn, meaningful, prayerful and sensitive Christmas.
