5 ways to donate to typhoon yolanda victims

toddler for a cause, fundraising, typhoon

we have been watching the news everyday to get updates on what’s going on in the areas that was greatly affected by typhoon yolanda {haiyan}. personally, i do not want to watch anymore as i do not want to see images of children hurting, hungry and crying ~ it is really disheartening! 🙁

mum said we can do something to help these children and their families + have went on to rummage our closet for outgrown clothes to donate. we have also included those tee that we have not worn in a while. mum washed these clothes the other day so that the people can readily wear them when they got  them. we are also emptying my coinbank + will be using my savings to buy a number of items from the grocery later on to be sent to people in tacloban.

anyone can do his share + it does not matter what or how much you give for donation, i am sure it will go a long way in helping all those who are suffering now in the typhoon-destroyed areas. we have list down a number of ways in which you can help:

harry potter movie marathon

Harry Potteroffline for 3 days + occupied

i told you about our internet being down for 3 days + it rained the entire time, we never had the chance to go out of the house for a walk or a few minutes under the sun, no thanks to typhoon falcon. On friday, even my tita cecille was home-bound since due to the bad weather her boss cancelled work for that day. to keep ourselves amused, mum + i (with tito ken as alternate) would watch the rain from our bedroom window + see the water growing in our backyard (which is about up to my mum’s ankles by friday morning).

we’ve been doing it for several days already since it has been raining almost all week that everyone is just too tired of the rain come friday afternoon + is just praying it would go away sooner!

the grown-ups rediscovered an old favorite pastime activity + since i am only about 22 months + cannot really articulate my protest, i give in! but enjoyed much just a few minutes into it! yep, did i tell you people here at home are potter-nuts! they can talk harry potter all day long + yes, it also follows, they can watch potter movies on dvd’s all day long! + we did!

we started the journey with harry’s first brush with magic folk during his first year at hogwarts school. of course, there is no way you’d keep me glued on our lg screen longer than 30 minutes at a time, so i keep myself entertained + occupied with toys or books or my dood (that’s my baby talk for milk) or i’d sometimes doze off for a few minutes of naps!

long before i know it the first movie is finished + tito ken is fishing his 2nd dvd from his room. by the time the day is about to end + i was getting ready for bed, we have finished all 3 first movies already!

i really enjoyed watching most of it, especially that part with buckbeak + the flying car! i wish i can ride on beakie’s back too or drive a flying car! it will be very cool! 😉 i also find fluffy, the dog with 3 heads, very cute + funny!

am not sure when we will have a potter movie marathon again, but i’ll be sure to watch with the grown-ups again! maybe my tito will let me borrow his wand for a while so he can teach me some spells 😉

mum said the last harry potter movie will be shown very soon + the grown-ups are all raving about it! i hope i can watch it with them, but mum said i am not big enough to join! i guess i’ll just see it on dvd when it is out, then!
