on lending a helping hand....

the storm has passed. but it has left such massive tragedy to our fellow Filipinos. and sad to say, my relatives are one of them.

they lived in the lower part of QC. during the wrath of typhoon Ondoy, their houses were immersed in the flood, sparing nothing but their lives, and leaving nothing but mud, unusable furniture and appliances, and a totally messed up house. my aunt's family is currently staying in the house of one of her son's friends, while my the family of my two cousins are currently staying with their sister in novaliches.

why am i saying this? because i want to help them. because i want you to help me help them.

my family is now organizing stuff to donate to them this coming saturday. and i know my family can only give what extras we have. that is why i am asking for your help. i would like to help not only them, but also their neighbors who suffered the same tragic fate. they are in dire need of the following basic items:

> plates, spoons and forks, drinking glasses or mugs

> pillows, beddings (floor mats and blankets at the least)

> clothes (for a baby girl, a baby boy, two boys in their early elementary years, and adult clothes for my aunt, uncle, and cousins)

> toiletries (soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc)

> food (rice, noodles, canned goods at the least), and drinking water

my family cannot provide all of these. but with your generous help, we can create a miracle. i am more than willing to meet up with you for your donations. you can also share your extra cash if you want. anything you are able to donate will surely go a long way. i know it sounds a bit too aggressive. but they need our help as well. as far as i know, QC is one of the parts of metro manila that was devastated by the typhoon, yet was not given sufficient media attention and aid by the government and other volunteer causes. let us help them as well.

you can contact me at 09151874140 or at karljonaldfaustino@yahoo.com for your concerns and details as to how we can meet up to pick up your donations. i hope you can support this good cause. thank you very very much. god bless us.
