I had a very busy weekend. I performed in the choir during our Church’s Year-end Thanksgiving Worship Services. I accompanied my daughter in her school. While I was waiting for my her, I overheard some mommies talking about the damage that Typhoon Sendong (international code name Washi) has brought to Mindanao. They mentioned about the Ondoy-like flash floods. I confirmed the news when I tuned in to TV Patrol Weekend on Saturday night. There were more than 600 dead bodies and almost a thousand missing. As of the latest news, death toll is more than 900. Many of our kababayans lost their homes and properties, and their loved ones. In times like this, they really need our help, whether in cash or in kind.
Our blogger community called Pinay Mommies Community is rallying for donations to help the victims and their families. We also have fellow bloggers from Cagayan de Oro and Iligan City who were affected with the devastating flash flood. This morning, I sent a small amount via PayPal.
