I’ve also seen these creative relief bag ideas from Jenni Epperson, using cloth rags and old T-shirts:
Very simple but will effectively eliminate the use of plastic bags for relief goods, which will only add to the problem instead of the solution.
How else can we help? Some of my favorite bloggers give relevant information through the following posts:
- Run Around Girl’s List of Relief Operations and Evacuation Centers and how we can donate to the Red Cross
- Lissa Kahayon’s informative blog post here (now I know we can actually donate via GCash)
- Franny Wanny’s post on Operation Help Luzon 2012, with information on where to send donations and where we can volunteer.
Life will definitely go on but hopefully when we reach that proverbial calm after the storm, we would have found our way on the path towards long term solutions for this little piece of the world we call home.
