There are many homes were washed away by Typhoon Sendong. While everyone was comfortable on their sleeps, many of us were shaken by the flash floods brought by this typhoon. I would cry so hard whenever I saw some families trying to look for their love ones who are missing after the attack of Bagyong Sendong. I tried to look for means to help, even just a little; I guess it will do good for them already. There are many ways to help; you just have to choose any organization that is open for donations for the victims for Typhoon Sendong.

Cagayan de Oro is like a home to me. I was actually there a few weeks ago appreciating the beauty of the city, enjoying the festivities of my Alma Mater and loving the warm welcome of my family and friends. But now, Sendong’s wrath changed everything. The devastation brought about by Typhoon Sendong have left thousands of families mourning and displaced. As of this time, death toll has already reached more than a thousand and still increasing and more than 276,000 people remain homeless and sheltered by evacuation centers.As a Kagay-anon, it breaks my heart to see my countrymen in such a helpless state. I know that in my own little way, I need to do something to help. The first thing I did was re post in my other blog the call to HELP CAGAYAN DE ORO and I am so happy upon knowing that many of my friends responded. Others called me and confirmed their willingness to donate. During that time I recommended that donations be given to the foundations and groups stated in my blog. Donations in any form will be given to all the victims anyway.Until, this particular blogger friend from the US who wishes not to be named, reached out and send monetary help to my sister in Cagayan de Oro and even encouraged some of her blogpals to donate and help in the cause of providing mats and blankets to 240 families staying at Xavier Heights Gym in Balulang thus “Bloggers Blanket” was given birth. The victims are somehow surviving day by day with the food and clothes from other donors and also from the barangay. What they are asking right now are mats and blankets for them to at least combat the cold weather and the coldness of the cemented flooring inside the gym.
As of the moment, the funds gathered by Bloggers Blanket are not yet enough to give a pair of mat and blanket to all the families in the community. You might wonder, what’s the difference between donating to a big agency or to an organized group compared to Bloggers Blanket, I can say that there’s a lot. First, you can be very sure that your donations will go directly to the recipients. Second, the only interest and objective of the group is to help the victims directly which means that corruption has no place in the group. Photos and documentation of the activities will be visible through the blog posts of this blog and the blogs of some supporters and finally someone from the group is tasked to account everything and will make sure that every penny goes to the recipients. When you donate, you can help these people rebuild their lives…
