[UPDATE, Oct. 1, 2009: Donate directly to the Philippine National Red Cross via its official Paypal address: firstname.lastname@example.org]
As of 3:25 pm today, Sept. 29, TXTPower’s fundraising campaign for victims of typhoon Ondoy has gathered a total of P1,217,188.96.
For the past 24 hours, we received the following:
Where are the donations now? We are waiting for Paypal to transfer them to the Philippine bank account. Once transferred, we will get manager’s checks payable to the Philippine National Red Cross. We have informed the PNRC, thru the office of secretary-general Gwendolyn Pang, about this donation drive.
TXTPower convenor and Kabataan Rep. Mong Palatino is calling on students in Metro Manila and Rizal to volunteer for relief operations and to help gather donations and contributions in cash or kind, after government suspended classes in these areas. Students can contact Tulong Kabataan at 118-B Scout Rallos, Bgy. Sacred Heart, Quezon City with mobile number 0926-6677163.
Also, Mike Villar, one of our friends at PhilippineAid.com, said that they will redirect their Chip-in drive to TXTPower’s due to problems with Paypal. We hope Paypal would not give us any problems and instead discounts on transaction fees on donations made by friends of the Philippines from across the world.
Again, thank you to all those from around the world who have helped us.
