Orange County Collection for Disaster Relief for Philippines' Typhoon Victims

Real Estate Agent with CENTURY 21 Superstars

The Philippines has endured two typhoons in the last four weeks with a third ready to hit the northern island of Luzon again before the weekend.

Homes and whole villages have been lost to the first two typhoons which brought rain, floods and landslides.  As I am writing this, hundreds of thousands of families are again being evacuated in expectation of the typhoon called "Ramil" with the international name of "Lupit".

Donations are being collected throughout this week for money, cleaned clothing and blankets, non-perishable food, medicines (over the counter), toiletries and other basic necessities.  All donations will be going to those that have been most effected by the typhoon disasaters. 

Please think of donating to the relief drive as you do your shopping and clearing out your closets this week.  They are asking for over the counter medications such as Tylenol, robitussin, pepto bismol, etc.  I can imagine their need for diapers and sanitary items (sealed, unopened packages please).  Just think of what you will need if you were displaced in a shelter. 

Distribution and shipping will be provided by the Los Angeles BALSA Relief.  BALSA is integrated with the Filipino masses, ensuring all donations will be effectively used to help the urban poor, peasants, women and children, and other sectors of society.
