Funds for Shipping Collected Used Clothes to Haiyan Victims

Hi everyone!
I bet everyone had heard about the devastating typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan that hit central Philippines early November. This tragic event really hit our heart. Not only because of what we saw on televisions, but because we had experienced the same thing also last December 2011 with Typhoon Sendong. Sendong killed over a thousand people including some of our friends and family members. We also lost our home/house and our stuffs as well. We experienced hunger, thirst and pain during that time.

Having experienced the difficulty of living as a survivor of such a monstrous event, I understand and I also feel the pain and suffering that typhoon Haiyan survivors are experiencing right now. Because of this, me and my friends tried our best to help. We gathered used clothing from our friends and families. Fortunately, we are able to obtain ample clothing donations. We just need to repack the clothing and we are good to go. However, we have a little problem, we need to pay for the shipping cost and we were not able to raise fund for that in our locality. We will be needing around P10,000 for our fare to central visayas. I am from Northern Mindanao, Philippines. Actually, we also experienced the wrath of Haiyan but the effect in our area is not as massive as that in Tacloban. Please see my photo above.

In connection to this, we would like to ask your kind heart to please help us with our intent to help our fellowmen. We also would like to give back to them the help we received during Sendong. We would like to let them feel that there is still hope after all.

We will be forever grateful to you for your donations, no matter how big or small the amount is. Any donation in excess to the estimated shipping cost will also be used to purchase additional relief goods such as medicine, water, milk for babies, biscuits and toys for kids.
