Bloggers from Barrio Siete unite to provide assistance to our fellow Filipinos who were greatly affected by tropical storm Ondoy.
Please see the excerpt below from the B7 entry on how you can provide help too:
My fellow bloggers, readers and lurkers; it breaks our heart seeing all these images and watching the videos coming from Manila – the wrath and devastation not only to properties but also to the lives of our fellow Filipinos. Tropical typhoon Ondoy is not only creating havoc but also bringing epic floods in the Metropolitan Manila area.
In the spirit of Barrio Siete, I invite you all to join our Bayanihan Fund Drive: Donate to Ondoy Flood Victims. Very simply:
1.) Make a donation to our Bayanihan Fund Drive: Donate to Ondoy Flood Victims. If you can’t, then help us by making this viral and create an entry entitled: “Bayanihan Fund Drive: Donate to Ondoy Flood Victims“. A link to this original entry will be appreciated where your readers can make a donation. Please leave us a note in the comment section if you are joining so we can list your entry, in case the pingback doesn’t work.
2.) Invite other bloggers to join our “Bayanihan Fund Drive: Donate to Ondoy Flood Victims”
3.) We will list the names of the donors in a worksheet, their organization and/or their websites, unless they prefer to be anonymous.
4.) The listing will be updated regularly and will be posted here in Barrio Siete Dot com.
5.) We are only accepting monetary donations in currencies accepted by Paypal.
6.) All donations will be remitted only to the Philippine National Red Cross in Manila. (We have not made any contact with them yet.)
7.) If you prefer: You can make donations directly to the Philippine National Red Cross. Here is the link: Ways to donate
In Barrio Siete, this is where you can make your donation. We will in turn, turn this over to the Philippine National Red Cross.
8.) Reyna Elena’s entry on Ondoy here is getting a lot of messages from readers asking for help and assistance. If you are reading this, please head over to that entry and respond to some of the questions if you know because it kills me that I don’t know the answer to their questions or their plea for help. Hopefully, there is one here who could help.

I hope the politicians, especially those who are joining the 2010 race for Presidency, will set aside their personal agendas and help with sincerity. This is not a time for campaigning! This is a time for action.
