10 Ways To Help #YolandaPH Relief Operations
One of the strongest typhoons to hit the country left many without homes and shelter in Visayas. With the death toll rising by the minute, we are one with you in making sure we do what we can to help our brothers and sisters affected by super typhoon Yolanda.
If you've got resources, the best thing to do is donate. What to donate exactly? Suggested items are medicine, toiletries, blankets, unused underwear, easy-to-open canned goods (food that doesn't need to be cooked), and bottled water.
RockED Radio has also opened its New Underwear Drive and are accepting donations at Route 196 in Katipunan and cash donations through BPI bank deposit.
Anne Curtis together with sister and Candy cover girl Jasmine Curtis-Smith are partnering with World Vision to raise funds for victims of #YolandaPH too.
You can also donate with your phone through SMS and Red Cross.
