Let’s All Help Out

1

Upon arriving last night in Manila from Kuala Lumpur, I was picked up by my driver who’s been with us for 27 years (he’s more of my second dad than just a driver since we spend everyday together) and I immediately asked, “how’s your family?” His family, including two of our helpers at home, lives in Tacloban and after the horrible typhoon Haiyan (also known as bagyong Yolanda) happened, he still hasn’t heard anything from them. There’s no cell site, no communication, no flights going there- no news at all. His face seems like he hasn’t seen the sun for days. He doesn’t know if they’re still alive, or where they are or what their state is if they survived the typhoon. Talking to him, I just couldn’t help but cry. That’s just one family out of the millions who were affected by the horrible storm. I had to fly to Kuala Lumpur for an event when Yolanda was about to hit our country, but I’ve been keeping myself updated on Instagram, Rappler and CNN. Seeing the videos and photos just tore my heart. After the earthquake and the tornado that happened recently, now the super typhoon. I know a lot of people out there would love to help out, here’s a list of RELIEF OPERATIONS CENTERS that Rappler made. To those people living outside the Philippines, you can also donate, just check out this LIST. We are all united, we are one. We can all make a difference. These people affected by typhoon Haiyan/ Yolanda may think it’s the end of the world, but let’s give them hope.
