Typhoon Ondoy or its international name Ketsana has left things that could destroy lives further... Up to now there are so many people still missing, many people hungry and hurt, and others still shocked. below are some post from the Internet where we can help out in this tragedy wherever you are. PLEASE HELP, IN WHATEVER FORM MAY THAT BE!

Help Flood Victims

This will be short.
I’m sending out an appeal to the world.
As I write this article, thousands of people are still trapped in the floodwaters of typhoon Ondoy—or in relocation sites that have no food and drinking water. (Just in case you don’t know anything about what’s happening in Metro Manila and Rizal province, here are photos of the storm:
My friend, Sonia Lozada, is owner of Trinity restaurants.. Since yesterday, her five restaurants have been cooking like crazy and sending packs of cooked food to devastated areas.
Sonia was right about cooked food. Because if you’re trapped in floodwaters, uncooked food is useless. You can’t cook anything. Sonia has also been delivering cases of bottled water—but they weren’t enough. One bottle of water was shared by three people.
With our financial support, Sonia’s team will continue to feed people today and tomorrow. I will personally be there, giving out food and drinking water to Flood Victims today. My team will be there as well—all of us who can help.
But cooking food today and tomorrow is only an emergency measure.
In the next few weeks and months, the real work will begin: All our organizations—Light of Jesus, KerygmaFamily, etcetera, will do the hard work of helping people rebuild their homes damaged by the floods—thus helping them rebuild their lives. It will be a long and difficult work—but we’ll be there for them.
This is what Jesus wants us to do.
Friend, you may not be here physically to help, but you can be our spiritual and financial support. First, pray for the victims. Pray for strength that they regain their hope. Many are devastated emotionally.
Second, if you can, make a donation and help them.
If you want to be part of our efforts to help Flood Victims, you can make a donation. Any amount will do. You can make your deposit online or through a bank.

Okay, remember that time in Indonesia, where the tidal wave/tsunami hit around Christmas Time?

Did you remember the videos of people being chased by cars with no people in them?

Apparently, this previous storm (signal #2 only!) was exactly like that --but spread out in Manila and nearby areas - with places not affected and some places affected. It was flash floods all around. And yes, I was outdoors at that time, trying to get home from a postponed workshop in Cubao. (They shut off the Power in the Mall, they didn't give us a reason why but I think it was a nearby fire, yes, even with the rain). So yes, I saw what it looked like - EDSA area but nothing compared to what happened in C5 or Katipunan or elsewhere.

Let pictures do that talking:

The insidious thing was -- the rain wasn't all that hard. Nor the winds. It felt like a "regular" storm. Until the water rose too quickly and soon -even those in cars- were not safe. I actually tried wading in kneed deep flowing water (very unsafe!) just to get home but got blocked by waist deep water and decided it wasn't worth it. So yes, I checked into a hotel - the first one my mind remembered and stayed there until the next day. I looked out the window and saw a peaceful manila - this wasn't the affected area (Ortigas), it was Marikina and Manila and ....


Here's my point, if you're itching to help here's your chance:

1. How you can donate and stuff: Even if you're not in the Philippines:

2. If you have access to a vehicle, heavy moving equipment and boats, head on over to the Google Situation Map where you can find who DIRECTLY needs help: (A Pinoy inside Google had a hand in creating this one, I think)

3. To update this map, use this:

4. Plus, if you're monitoring the news, try this REAL TIME view from Twitter users:

5. Missing People List: (You can edit this)

6. Yes, some of the data are redundant --that's expected -people are just assembling this as it happens. And yes, yes I know that one day they'll look at us Pinoys and say that the Internet/Twitter/FB/Google Maps/Google docs has helped tremendously - but that's not the point TODAY.

So now, is this any where related to Mar.keting? Nope. It isn't and it doesn't have to be.

Now, live a remarkable life and if you're able, HELP OUT!
