Here’s how you can help the victims of the monsoon

Lend a hand to victims this weekend!

Although not of Ondoy-esque proportions (thank goodness) the heavy and consistent rains over the past couple of days have certainly displaced thousands of individuals and families. Even if we are better prepared this time around with evacuation centersand information dissemination, the monsoon’s unpredictability continues to cause damage and renders most roads to smaller barangays and districts un-passable. It is not recommended that private citizens go out themselves to deliver rescue and relief goods, as this may result in more injuries, and even fatalities, but there are ways you can help. The easiest, of course, is through monetary donations but if you’d rather volunteer your services or donate goods, there are many ways you can do it without risking your own life and leaving the professionals to do it with safety a priority.

As of this writing, here’s a shortlist of what you can do to help:

The Angel Care Fund

In Living a Life Off-Center on March 9, 2011 at 3:09 am

I learned during a recent manifestation workshop that one of the best ways to attract abundance in your life is through “tithing”. Tithing implies giving a portion of your earnings to a charitable cause or to people in your life who are in need. Tithing isn’t always about money, it can also be about time spent with someone, or effort placed into a project that can help others. The key to tithing is consistency, it doesn’t have to be for example, a big amount, as long as you give something on a regular basis.

I would like to invite all my readers and friends to place the Angel Care Fund in their giving radar in the even that you, your friends or your family, would like to tithe :0)

Donations can be received in any amount, cash or cheques, payable to Isdanco Foundation Incorporated. You can indicate on the cheque that it be placed for The Angel Care fund specifically.  You may contact The Isdanco Foundation at:

(632) 8970383 Fax. (632) 8970307 loc 102 Mobile: 09188970383/ 09178970383.

Feel free to share the information with anyone and everyone.

Be an Angel to someone else!

If you’re in the mood to do some good this week, come to Powerplant Mall in Rockwell. The Angel Brigade is celebrating their 1st anniversary with a week long photo and installation exhibit that celebrates all the projects they have done since typhoon Ondoy in 2009. There will also be a silent auction with volunteers donating their services in order to raise funds for Angel Brigade’s ongoing projects. The current project has the Angel Brigade partnered up with Escuela Taller in setting up a livelihood center in Barangay Concepcion in Malabon. Feel free to repost this invitation and do encourage others to keep the spirit of volunteerism alive! See you at the South Court (near Zara) of Powerplant from September 20-26 and take a look at the auction pedestals that will be distributed around the mall. Anyone and everyone welcome to take a look at the exhibit and to bid on items from a Philippe Charriol watch, anti-aging treatments from Dra. Aivee Teo, a custom  made gown by Tippi Ocampo, a portrait by fashion photographer Pat Dy, running lessons from a professional coach, a beautiful three seater sofa from Nest and many other wonderful items.
