It is amazing how the Filipinos are united at this time. Technology and social networking sites are playing an important role in disseminating information. Facebook and Twitter are perfect examples. I was really surprised to see Paulo Coelho (who even donated via bank wire transfer), Ashton Kutcher, and Yoko Ono among others tweeting about the situation and pointing to a site where others can donate.

At this moment, thousands of volunteers are repacking goods to be distributed to the victims. Please help in any way you can, monetary or otherwise.

Here is a site where you can find more information: where to drop off donations, how to donate cash, how to volunteer.

Typhoon Ondoy may have left the Philippines but it is not over yet. Keep on praying for the victims and the rescuers.
