Typhoon Sendong: Fund Drive / Donations Update

Typhoon Sendong GraphicTropical storm Sendong ravaged Mindanao with devastating rains, unleashing flash floods and landslides that left a trail of destruction and left thousands our kababayans homeless. Hundreds of pictures and videos filled the screens of our television sets and computer monitors depicting the sad plight of our brothers and sisters, sons and daughters.

What we saw in the news saddened each and every one of us. Words cannot describe the fuzziness in my throat and the clouds in my eyes when I saw the picture of a father carrying the dead body of his child. The picture tells it all.

Please allow us to take this opportunity to thank our pool players and friends who extended a helping hand in the form of cash assistance and/or relief goods for the victims of Sendong. They are the following:


Gillian Go (BDN)
Php 3,000

Lee Vann Corteza and the Negros Billiards Stable
Php 10,000


World Champion Rubilen “Bingkay” Amit (MAPPA/BDN)
10 boxes of bottled mineral water


Jonathan, Sonia, and Jed Paguio (IAC)
Php 500


Jassen Chua (BDN)
1 plastic container of used clothing


Boyong Jorge (MAPPA)
1 shopping bag of used clothing


Jesse Gonzales Cambosa (MAPPA)
1 shopping bag of new shirts


and

a group of kids who donated bags of used clothing.


Despite the short notice and all, we managed to gather a total of Php13,500, 10 boxes of bottled mineral water, 5 bags of used clothing, and 1 bag of brand new shirts for our kababayans. The donations were turned over to Ms. Sol of GMA-7, who furnished us with receipts for such. Many thanks to Sam Nielsen of GMA-7 for taking time out to assist us with the fund drive.

To everyone who shared their blessings with our brothers and sisters, and our sons and daughters in Mindanao, Maraming salamat po!


*To the man in the picture – I know it may not mean much but you and your child will always be in my prayers. Always.

Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I hope that preventative measures can be put in place soon. One thing that can be done which costs nothing is each individual take responsibility for their garbage and put it where it belongs instead of throwing it all over the streets, rivers, and everywhere else.
