Philippine Daily Inquirer [one of Philippines’ national newspaper]

Here’s a link to a video of the said floods in various areas of the the metropolis.

Ways to donate towards supporting work that assist Typhoon Ondoy victims in the Philippines:

1.  TXTPower [magbayanihan@yahoo.com.ph]

This is a Philippine listed organization. There is a possibility that donations coming from the U.S. are not tax deductible, in case that is a concern. However, they have a Paypal account—thus, very convenient.

Please do your own research about the organization. I did my own— I gather and trust this to be a legal organization in the Philippines.

2. Philippine National Red Cross

No Paypal link as of this writing. There are other ways to donate  listed on their website. This venue is probably more  convenient for those who are in the Philippines.

3. American Red Cross

This is probably the safest, most convenient,  and best way for those outside the Philippines. As of this posting, they have not updated their marked beneficiaries yet—considering it has just been about a day since. However, there is a general donation page found in their website. It accepts all forms of convenient ways to donate.

Thank you.

Stay safe, dear friends!
