I volunteer!

8:48 AM

          Weeks have passed but our kababayans in Tacloban and other places that were struck by super typhoon Haiyan are still struggling. Sometimes I don't want to watch the news because it breaks my heart to see  devastated properties and people crying, specially the kids that are very helpless. 
          On the bright side Filipinos around the world are doing their best to collect donations and volunteering to help the typhoon victims. Even other countries are sending their help to our kababayans (Thank you). So if don't have anything to do this weekend or if you are bored or you want to help the victims I am encouraging you to volunteer. So if you are looking for a place to volunteer to you are very much needed here:
