UPDATE: Please also see the comments section below to learn where else you may send help. For donations in kind, bottled water is the priority.
Typhoon Sendong has left a trail of destruction and devastation that, as of writing, has left 436 dead and a number of our fellow Filipinos without food, shelter, clothing and clean water. It has been reported that 50mm of rain per hour was dumped by Sendong in the early morning of Dec. 17 when everybody was asleep. People in Mindanao and a part of Visayas woke up to rising floodwaters with little time to evacuate. As of writing, 440 have been declared dead and 200 are still missing. The numbers are still expected to rise. (Read more about Sendong from Red Cross’ page here).
I know that a lot of people want to help so I did the list below. Should you have any other information on how we can all ease the burden of our fellow Pinoys please do leave a comment. The information found in the table below all came from Twitter and Facebook from trusted and verified sources but you can always double-check the sources on your own.

Please feel free to add and correct the information listed herein in the comments section below. Let’s also remember those affected by Sendong in our prayers that they may we they all find strength, comfort and relief amidst the tragedy. May our leaders also find the will to reach out and use their energies wisely (translation: huwag na muna magsisihan pwede ba?!).
