The Fastest Way to Help

I never imagined the damage that typhoon Sendong brought to Cagayan de Oro, Iligan and nearby areas until I saw the statistics from Yahoo! Philippines: 652 dead, 808 missing (as of 12:00 AM December 19).

It’s indeed worst that typhoon Ondoy. Take a look at some of the pictures taken from Minda News:

Since I’m a Globe subscriber, I opted to use the fastest and most comfortable way to help: by way of sending a text message. Here are the instructions on how to help, taken from Globe Telecoms Facebook page:

Help our brothers and sisters in Mindanao who were badly affected by typhoon Sendong via Red Cross.

Donate by texting RED <amount> to 2899. You may transfer P5, 25, 50, 100, 300, 500 and 1000.

You can also help via GCASH by texting DONATE <amount> MPIN REDCROSS and send to 2882.

Every help counts so please share this to everyone you know.

BTW, there’s a <space> between RED and the amount that you wanted to send. Spread the word guys. I also pray and hope for the people’s fast recovery from this tragedy.
