As if a 7.2 magnitude earthquake last October wasn’t enough, the central region of the Philippines was hit by another disaster, a 295 kph typhoon on November 8, 2013. Supertyphoon Yolanda (International name: Haiyan), one of the most powerful storms ever recorded in history, smashed the central part of the Philippines and left hundreds of millions of worth of destroyed of properties, death toll at around 4000, and over 650,000 displaced survivors who are desperate for food and shelter, among others.

My family has sent help directly to different people and groups who can give the relief goods to individuals in different cities. My husband also went to help distribute relief goods in a couple of islands affected by the typhoon. But there is still so much to be done. And all the feeding and rebuilding needs so much money.

As bloggers with social media influence, we thought we could help these people by throwing this huge fundraising giveaway — a way that we are all very familiar with. We have already raised $515 from this event and continuing to receive more donations through GoGetFunding.com. There will be a turnover of funds to a legitimate organizations that buys, repacks, and hands out relief goods directly to the victims. You can visit one of the host blogs for updates on the fund transfer in about a week or two.

One thought on “Bloggers Unite Fundraising Event for the Victims of Typhoon Yolanda

    When I got pregnant 2 years ago, I was really ecstatic not only because of the child in my womb, but also because of the things that my mom did for me. I know she loves me and my siblings a LOT. But I never thought that she’ll go that far just to let me know that she loves me so much. At 7th or 8th week, I was advised to be on a complete bed rest. And that meant going home to my parents’ home. I was not allowed to do almost anything except for eating, sleeping and taking a very, very short bath. My mom did everything for me. She cook food for me, accompany me to the clinic whenever my husband’s not available, wash my clothes…every imaginable thing that my very weak body can’t do. It was really hard for her to do those things because she has to take care of my siblings and my nephew at the same time. To add to all of those things, I took my 2 dogs with me. One of them WAS paralyzed (who died before my son turned 1) and very ill and needs medical attention. She took good care of them without complaining. I can see that she was very exhausted but I never heard her complain, and I can’t thank her enough for that. That was one of the most beautiful thing a person has done for me.
