Ondoy in the Philippines

I read the news about the typhoon 'Ondoy' (international name: Ketsana) in the Philippines only last night when I returned from an out of town day trip. The net is full of accounts of people needing help and the damage and casualties brought upon by this typhoon. There are also many calls for help.

Digital Filipino has posted a blog called How to donate via SMS to help typhoon victims. This is one of the ways in which technology is being put to good use, where every person can participate in giving help, in small or big things. This particular donation will go directly to the Red Cross Rescue and Relief Operations.

Just text: Red AMOUNT to 2899 (Globe) or 4483 (Smart).

The AMOUNT can be 10, 25, 50 or 100.

Read more about it here.
