PLEASE DONATE TO THE VICTIMS OF TYPHOON KETSAMA (ONDOY) !

now that i have seen, i am responsible
faith without deeds is dead
---- brooke fraser, ALBERTINE
I never thought that the devastation brought by the Typhoon Ketsama (ONDOY) in Mega Manila last Saturday was  worse than expected. The flood caused by Typhoon Ketsama was the worst flood in the Philippines in more than almost 4 decades. In just 6 hours, the infamous storm dumped a month's worth of rain all over Mega manila. Infact, rainfall brought by Ketsama to  the Philippines (410mm) was  way too far compared to the rainfall brought by Hurricane Katrina (a Category 5 Hurricane) to  Louisina USA years ago ( equivalent to 380mm).Photos and stories about the historic flood are flooding the internet. It will really break your heart. Thanks to the help of technology today, internet users are so vigilant in  posting updates via twitter and facebook about people who are in need and affected by the flood.ONLINE BAYANIHAN!. I would like to express my deepest gratitude in behalf of the Filipino people to the following international artists and celbrities around the world for expressing their sympaties over  the victims of the flood: @ramielmalubay (American Idol) Finalist , @Jonathan Foreman and @Switchfoot Band,@Josh Groban, @Ashton Kutcher, @Paulo Coelho, @Alyssa milano, @megan fox, @paris hilton and many more. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
