I am from the Philippines and I am safe. But a good portion of our Eastern Visayas region is not. The bank I work for already reported two deaths, an employee and a retiree, and mostly deceased family members of employees.
I regret not posting sooner on this channel to call for help. I’ve seen the local news, but it wasn’t until I heard exasperation in Anderson Cooper’s voice did I realize help is taking too long.
I will do my best to constantly update this post for help and information where you can donate.
May God bless us all.
Haiyan (Yolanda) Fact Sheet:
Rappler is my favorite local news source as of late.
If you have other relief operations, food drives, fund generation and means to give aid to those in need, please let me know so I can post announcements here. I have a good number of unique hits per day; let’s put that to good use.
Again, thank you and let’s continue to pray for each other.
UPDATE: If you follow me on Twitter, I was screaming for airdropping relief goods. Here’s why they won’t do so. And to tickle your fancy, here’s a very interesting read from Time.
UPDATE 2, 16 November 2013: This has to be my most favorite kind of donation drive: DINE FOR A CAUSE! :) Eat at these restaurants for the weekend and contribute to the continuing rescue of Yolanda victims.

Interesting analysis of airdrop pros and cons. It’s certainly been very challenging to get enough relief into the area fast enough no matter how you look at it.
