The Yolanda Typhoon death toll has reached 6,201 according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) as of yesterday. More than 16 million individuals have been affected by the typhoon with over 4 million people displaced.
I just want to remind everyone that helping out isn’t just a fad, you can always donate a portion of your salary or your daily coffee money (it’s okay to sleep you know?).
BPI e-Donations makes it easier for us to share our blessings. No more excuses about being too busy to run to the bank, etc. Admit it, you’re online for the better part of the day so please take the time to check this out and donate whatever amount you can. Yup, I’m guilt tripping you!! Haha, sorry I’m not sorry!
One of the foundations you can donate to is TEN MOVES
TEN Moves is a campaign led by the Philippine Business for Social Progress and the League of Corporate Foundations in response to the Department of Education’s appeal to the private sector to help address the country’s severe classroom shortage. TEN Moves – which also means The Entire Nation Moves – urges 2 million Filipinos to donate P10 a day for 10 months to help build 10,000 classrooms nationwide.
TEN Moves and iGive.ph have partnered to raise funds for the reconstruction of classrooms in Typhoon Pablo and Typhoon Yolanda affected areas. Together, we hope to mobilize resources to help rebuild classrooms in Mindanao and Visayas. All donations during this period will be received and managed by Philippine Business for Social Progress.

I donated a lump sum of P3,000, the total amount if I set aside 10 pesos every day for a total of 10 months! Again, if more Filipinos do the same, we can build a LOT of classrooms! I don’t think 10 pesos everyday is too much to ask from you, is it?
