Welcome and a Plea

Dear Everyone,

I know that you have heard or watched the recent devastation that hit our beloved country, the Philippines. Metro Manila is still in a state of calamity because of the flooding brought by the typhoon "Ketsana".

It was so heartbreaking to see the kind of damage and destruction it brought to our countrymen. With the pictures still vividly entrenched in my mind, I decided to start a fund-raising campaign to help out these people who were greatly affected.

I will be setting up a bank account, and provide the seed money of $100, which will be used as the depository account for this fund-raising campaign. All money received will be recorded together with the names of the donor. My aim is to raise at least $2,000 to be sent to the Philippines on Monday, October 5. The money will be used to buy food, clothes and other necessary items. Distribution of the goods will be done to the mostly affected areas, particularly Marikina and Cainta. Priorities will be given to those who are still in the evacuation centers.

Any amount you donate will make a big impact. So, I am appealing to your kind heart to please share your blessings and help those people who are now in most need of assistance.

I will post here all the money received with their names (anonymous, if they want to remain as such) and the snapshot of the bank statement.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Bless you all!!
