A Big “Thank You” For Your Generosity

Posted on Nov 2, 2009

A few weeks ago, in conjunction with Philippine Aid, our team initiated a fundraising drive across our network to try and raise money for the victims in the Philippines suffering from the devastation of Typhoon Ondoy. The reaction has been overwhelming, as one can see at sites such as Blog Herald, Performancing, Charities Blog and many others. The amount raised from this campaign drive is an amazing $12,472.32 from 140 contributors:

So a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who donated!! We will be posting a list of all who gave at our original post.

With the PNRC, we can be 100% sure that the funds have gone directly to those who are in need- with the basic human needs being prioritized: medical, clean water, food, shelter and the setting up of evacuation centers.

However, the devastation caused by Typhoon Ondoy to many victims in the Philippines is still not over, even if it is no longer in the mainstream news cycle. Many are still trapped and/or stranded, as this Google Mapspread locator shows:

So if you can donate or raise more funds for those who desperately need it, please do visit the Philippine National Red Cross donation page. Or you can send directly via paypal to: [email protected].

Once again, thank you dear readers for your support during this terrible calamity.
