Time to give back – Help the victims of Typhoon Pedring

Most of us here in the provinces were spared from the direct effects of typhoon Pedring (Int. Nesat) which ravaged through Northern Luzon yesterday.

As of the latest count by officials, around 18 are dead while 35 are missing with thousands of evacuees are struggling in flood stricken areas.

So for all of us who were very lucky to Tweet or post our rants and musings on Facebook, it’s time to give back. Volunteer your services to help the victims recover from this ordeal.
