In a world where this and this happens on a regular basis, it is easy to end up cynical and generalize that most people are heartless worms with opposable thumbs. However, a work colleague of mine and a dear friend has decided, together with her husband, to celebrate the 1st birthday of their child in a very charitable and meaningful way.

By doing a fund raising effort for the CDO/ Iligan victims.

Here is an excerpt of my friend's FB post:
Hi Family, Friends, Ninangs, Ninongs, Titos, Titas, Ates and Kuyas,

As you know, it's Lexie's first birthday on January 5, 2012. We initially planned for a first birthday party, but we have decided to landmark her 1st year by making it extra special and meaningful.
With this - we would like to seek your support for a Fund Raising effort for the people in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan City impacted by Sendong.

We will be collecting donations from January 5, 2012 (Thursday) till January 21, 2012 (Saturday). Donations in kind and cash are welcome :)
If in kind - please take note of the following preferred items:
Mineral Water
New Underwear
Diapers - all sizes
Medicines - Biogesic, Bioflu, Diatabs, etc...

Cash donations will be used to buy items stated above (Christia's note: If you want to donate in cash, email me for details) . Repacking activity will be out our home on the 21st of January - and everybody who wants to join is more than welcome to assist us with this effort :)

We can also meet you guys on the 7th and 8th in strategic spots around the metro (
Christia's note: They request not in Megamall as the parking is horrendous) to pick up your donations.

All donations will be delivered to GMA Kapuso Foundation on the 22nd of January.

Jan, Vayie and Lexiepatootie
If you can find it in your heart to donate, please send me a quick email via christiasworld[at]gmail[dot]com and I can assist in getting your goods for Lexie's Fund Raising 1st birthday.

Or, if you are a blogger with multitudes of hits per day, please share and repost this in your blog. The more we spread out the word, the better. Help make Lexie's Fund Raising 1st birthday a success! :)
