Nakakatuwa talagang makita na andami-daming mga kababayan natin from abroad — either working or already permanent residents — ang gumagawa ng kani-kanilang kampanya para makatulong sa mga kababayan nating nasalanta ni Bagyong Yolanda.
Iba-ibang grupo, iba-ibang tao, iba-ibang istilo… pero nagkakaisa sa iisang layunin.
Pero ang pinaka-nakakatuwa na marahil ay yung mga bata na kung anu-anong mga gimik ang naiisip maka-kalap lang ng pera at ibang donasyon para mai-ambag sa Relief and Rehabilitation efforts dito sa atin.
Take these two kids, for example. Magkapatid sila na Fil-Ams (isang 10 years old at isang 13 years old) na gumawa ng mga “Haiyan Bracelets” upang ibenta online.
Lahat ng proceeds ng sales ay ido-donate nila sa isang eskwelahan sa Tacloban para ito’y maayos at muling magamit ng mga kapwa nilang bata.
Heto yung sulat ni Malaya, yung 10 year old na nakaisip ng proyektong ito:
I want to tell you about a project that my sister and I are doing to raise money to help the children in Tacloban. Most of the schools in Tacloban were destroyed by typhoon Haiyan. We want to raise $1,000. to help rebuild an elementary school. We are in contact with someone in Tacloban to help us find the school to donate it to. As soon as I find out I will let you know the name of the school and hope to be able to send you a picture of the school.
We are making bracelets from rubber bands that we are calling Haiyan Loom. The color red, blue and yellow are the colors of the Philippine flag. It means that the Filipino people are strong in spirit. We are asking for a donation of $10 or more for each of the Haiyan looms. We are donating all of the profit to help rebuild an elementary school. My only expenses are the rubber bands and clips to make the bracelets and cost of mailing. All of the Haiyan Looms are made by our volunteers of family and friends. I taught my sister and she taught her friends. I also taught Lolo Amado and Lola Jax. I am making news designs. I have a list of 65 family and friends that I hope will donate.
Here are pictures of my Haiyan Looms. They can be worn as a bracelet or also on a dog. I can make them any size. If you want to make a donation let me know. Also if you have any ideas for my Haiyan Looms. My Lolo just set up an account on pay pal but i don’t think it is working yet, you can try it firstname.lastname@example.org
Asteeg ano? Marapat lang na suportahan ang mga ganitong klaseng kampanya, lalu na’t mga bata ang nagpasimula. Kaya, in case na mabasa ninyo ito, at kayo ay naghahanap ng paraan para makatulong, baka type ninyong bumili.
Puntahan niyo lang ang site nila by clicking on their banner image above and start placing your orders. And spread the word na din ha?
Let’s help these 2 kids help the thousands of kids affected by Yolanda! :-)
