I know it’s annoying that I tagged unrelated things on this post (yes, simply to get the word around), but really this is important.
I’m just going to put this out there. In the midst of the state of national calamity that has fallen on my country, there is always a glimmer of hope, and a…

Several hours before Typhoon Haiyan made landfall in the Philippines on Nov. 7, DigitalGlobe activated FirstLook, an online service that provides satellite imagery of large scale disasters. Their satellites collected more than 7,300 square miles of imagery in the areas hardest hit by the typhoon — one of the strongest storms to ever make landfall.
With heart of Gratitude, a profound and a very big thank you to all the countries all over the world who are always there and ready to give support and help.
Thank you so much showing your deepest sympathy to the typhoon haiyan victims.
May the almighty God continue to shower you with blessings.
I just hope, that all these generous donations will fall to the right hands…
To the corrupts- “Don’t even think about putting these donations to your pockets” Your country men needs it!
There has been a terrible lack of posts recognizing the Philippine Typhoon and that’s why I’m making this post. The Philippines just had the WORST typhoon in history called, Haiyan. Now if you have no idea about the severity, the wind speeds of this typhoon was about 250 mph, which is THREE AND A HALF TIMES THE SPEED OF THE WINDS OF HURRICANE KATRINA. imagine the damage Katrina did to the US, a developed country. The Philippines is a Third world country. Most of the people in this country live in SHACKS MADE OUT OF TRASH. It is estimated that about 10,000 PEOPLE DIED. Dead bodies literally litter the streets and are STUCK IN TREES. IF YOU GIVE ANY SHITS TODAY ABOUT FELLOW HUMANITY YOU BETTER REBLOG THIS. IM NOT ONLY DOING THIS BECAUSE MY FAMILY IS FILIPINO BUT BECAUSE THIS STORM WAS THE WORST IN HISTORY. GOD BLESS THE SOULS LOST THERE. My parents were seriously almost on the verge of tears and almost screaming. We didn’t lose anybody in our family, but it has got to hurt to know that the place you came from is IN SHAMBLES. Pls spread this if you care
I have a lot of Filipino friends and people I cherish a lot! If you could donate to the cause that would be great!
I just want to say that most people here, and especially the ones who got hit, do not live in “shacks made out of trash”. People live in cemented houses and they thought that they’d at leaat be relatively safe in their homes. It was devastating that even strong structures couldn’t be a haven for the people that were affected.
I appreciate the signal boost. But just correcting the misconception.
I agree.^ most people actually live in a concrete houses..Not in “shacks made of trash.”…
