How To Help Victims of Typhoon Haiyan aka Yolanda.

As we all know, the strongest typhoon in the world Haiyan, more known in the Philippines as Yolanda, has brought so much pain to the country the past week.

I know I am not alone when I say I can't bear to look at the photos or hear the news as my heart breaks for my fellow countrymen who were affected by this calamity. So instead of talking about the extent of the destruction it has caused, I collated information on how you can help victims of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda. Feel free to share more information in the comments section or email me at joeiandme @

What NOT To Give to Relief Aid

Please be responsible and not post selfies when using hashtags connected to the typhoon, most especially #RescuePH.  The rescuers use this to mobilize their efforts and it would be a waste of their time to have to sort through all the photos and what-nots before they get to the people who are in need of rescuing.  For prayers, messages of hope and encouragement, you can use other hashtags such as #PrayforthePhilippines.

If you live outside the Philippines, here's how you can help.

TIME to get to know the hardy Filipino people.…unbelievably resilient, long-suffering, good-natured, uber friendly, loyal, ingenious and a bunch of survivors. At the end of the day, the Filipinos will just shake off the dirt from their clothes and things, and go about their business…and SMILE. They do not complain much, they will bear as long as they can. Maybe this is why they were given the ‘privilege’ of bearing the burden of the strongest typhoon ever recorded.”

God Bless the Philippines.
