Let us help out and do our part

It has been over a week since Super typhoon Yolanda (International name: Haiyan) struck parts of Visayas and left our countrymen devastated with no shelter, food, and water. The death toll has already reached a staggering amount and even until now, many survivors still haven't received relief goods and are still suffering from extreme starvation.

In times like these, it's best to help out in any way we can. I see a lot of people complaining online about the inefficiency of the government or about other establishments/people not helping enough, or how other people are just plain insensitive by openly posting selfies, food, or travel posts. Instead of complaining, why not just spend your time doing more productive things like actually helping out?

There are tons of ways to help: just scroll down your Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram feeds and you're sure to find info on drop-off centers, different relief operations, calls for volunteers, and lists of suggested donations. I also posted some ways to help out on my Instagram and Twitter. If you don't have time to volunteer, you can always donate your old things or items that you don't use anymore -- clothes, blankets, etc. And above all, let us pray for our countrymen who were affected by this calamity: for them to stay strong and be led to safety.

It's not yet too late. Let us help out and do our part. :)
