Update: TXTPower total donations to Red Cross now at P1,185,390.40

Fri, Oct 2, 2009


TXTPower today brought to the Philippine National Red Cross a third check, bringing to P1,185,390.40 the amount we raised and given to PNRC for the benefit of typhoon Ondoy victims in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

The PNRC receipted today’s check bearing the amount P603,953.54 under official receipt number 022768 dated Oct. 2, 2009. We have earlier turned over two other checks: P94,752.50 last Sept. 30 (receipt number 0460385) and P486,684.39 yesterday Oct. 1 (receipt number 022665). These came from your online and mobile donations.

PNRC secretary-general Gwendolyn Pang promised TXTPower president Anthony Ian Cruz that the Red Cross will acknowledge and thank in its website the donors who coursed their donations through TXTPower. Those who still wish to make on online donation to the PNRC to send money to its official Paypal address: give@redcross.org.ph

Until we stopped the online fundraising yesterday, there remained a substantial amount in the Paypal account we used. We are waiting for Paypal to transmit those amounts for proper and swift turnover to the PNRC. We publicly urge Paypal expedite the release of the donations. Please note that PhilippineAid.com encountered a similar problem. Paypal, which has not offered any direct help to typhoon victims by way of transaction fee discounts, should at the very least not resort to technicalities and immediately release the funds that belongs to the victims of typhoon Ondoy.

Again, thank you to all those who supported the TXTPower fund drive. Perhaps in the next few hours or days, we may launch another, hopefully bigger campaign.
