    Ioshi, wishing you well (and a lot of strength) for your volunteering efforts today to help the stricken people of Manila.

    You are all in our thoughts and prayers

    REPOSTING *for the sake of bumping*

    I guess this link sums it all up: http://moongirl.wordpress.com/2009/0...a-from-abroad/

    you're welcome. if you can, please send your help, in any way.

    At the moment, we badly need in-kind donations (canned goods, no-cook instant noodles, mineral water, medicines), if its not too much, I know there are plenty of drop-off points somewhere around the US, US-based Filipinos organized most of these I'm certain. I have some friends in Cali too whose collecting those donations and sending them ASAP here in the Philippines. There are free shippings provided. The help is overwhelming and makes my heart melt.

    Danish Red Cross sends relief to Samoa and Tonga that was struck by a tsunami on Tuesday 29 September, 2009. So far no clear overview of the extent of this catastrophe / disaster.
    Responsible for this page on the site: drk.dk/nyheder (website of DRK = Dansk Røde Kors = Danish Red Cross / News) : Hans Beck Gregersen.
    ”We do not know much for the time being. Massive destructions have been reported to us by eye witnesses, and we know from the enormous tsunami in Asia in 2004 how serious / critical the consequences can be. Therefore we are now sending emergency”, says Birgitte Ebbesen, in charge of handling disasters within Danish Red Cross.
    Evacuated before the tidal wave / flood
    Already before the tidal wave hit, the local Red Cross had played an important part by evacuating the population. Now Red Cross is working on helping the 15,000 affected people - according to the first, very uncertain information.
    Three catastrophes / disasters in one week
    Anders Ladekarl, General Secretary or Secretary General within Danish Red Cross points out that the tsunami in the Pacific (Ocean) is the third enormous natural catastrophe / disaster in only one week:
    ”Red Cross is working at high pressure in the Philippines and Vietnam after the typhoon Ketsana. We have not yet a full overview of the numbers of people killed – and of the extent of the damages. But three catastrophes / disasters in one week, where Red Cross is playing a dominant part, show the reason for the collection on Sunday throughout Denmark, says Anders Ladekarl.
    Collection on Sunday
    If further help is needed, some of the money collected by Danish Red Cross on Sunday will go to the three current catastrophes / disasters:
    ”Therefore it is important that the Danes support the collection. And we still need collectors / volunteers on Sunday throughout the country, says Anders Ladekarl.

    http://drk.dk/nyheder/nyheder/r%c3%b...ami-hj%c3%a6lp

    __________________

    A week ago I volunteered to take part in collecting money for Danish Red Cross on Sunday 4 October, and I will see what I can do in order to ensure that some of the money collected on Sunday will go to the Philippines.

    And of course I will give a special money contribution to the Philippines.

    My heart goes out to all people affected by this disaster / catastrophe.

    Ioshi, thanks for posting the list of places where we can donate to...

    I'll do what I can...

    Unfortunately Indonesia just suffered from a big earhquake just 6 hours ago (measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale), and a lot of us here in Malaysia felt the tremors. Devastating state in Indonesia, though

    Ioshi messaged that she has gone to her home province of Bulacan where the situation is just as bad. She can't access Coldplaying from there and so won't be able to post for some days probably, but may be able to send updates through myself or others she is in touch with.
    I didn't eat confetti but I made it close...four times now!

    Message from Ioshi:

    As you already know, I'm at Bulacan at the moment, people from around our farm lost their homes as they got caught in landslides. Oh and my Dad's crops got destructed too. That's sad cos most of these harvests were given to my Dad's laborers and their family.


    Nobody's online, so if its okay, can you please post this over at the Philippines help thread? We are really in need of more in-kind donations (canned goods, used clothes, blankets, for personal grooming like soap, toothpastes and toothbrushes and all that stuff), if ANYONE, please, who's living in California, we are in dire need and I'm asking you to donate thru my friend, Fides Magtoto, she is also a Filipina living in California, she got a free shipping. Just tell her you are a friend of mine (Ioshi Enriquez) so that she won't get freaked out. If they could drop off the goods here, this is my friend's home address (I don't want to put Ioshi's friend's contact details on the internet please PM me AND Jsalyers for contact info, that way hopefully you will catch one of us online. She lives in Anaheim Hills, and her school is in Camarillo).
