Ways To Help the Victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) [updated as of 11/12]

It takes a nation to rebuild a nation.

In light of the recent tragedy that devastated the Visayan Region of the Philippines this weekend due to Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), here are some things that people can do to help and agencies to which they can go to donate and render their volunteer services.

I will add some more in the next few days.  I hope this helps…  I really do. – 11/11/13

and last but not the least, i’d also like to express my gratitude to all the countries that have expressed and given their sympathy and support to the philippines.  it’s great to see the world moving for a cause.  it’s just unfortunate that that cause has to be this tragedy.

anyway, i found this image floating around the web and i think it simply captures the philippines’ gratefulness and appreciation to the assistance being given by the entire international community.  we are deeply moved.  

thank you
