*** UPDATE: 9:08pm — I see that many of you have donated. Thank you. This is very helpful to people who are in very serious trouble as a result of this huge storm. Thank you also for sending this posting to friends to consider donating as well.
*NOTE: I have gone on the link below and given money to help these people who are in deep trouble from this powerful storm. Word is that as many as 10,000 have died — and just imagine the homes destroyed and the families who are without food and water right now. And with all catastrophes…the problems grow and grow as people struggle to survive.
I know these are tough economic times for many of you but I figure if enough of us join together, and even if some of us make a small contribution, our sheer large number of bloggers can make a big difference. No amount given is too small…and the more of us who give, the more we can accomplish. We on GretaWire are strong and effective as a group. If this is not a good time for you to give, I totally understand.
Incidentally, I have seen the quality of the relief work that Samaritan’s Purse does and it is first class work — so your contribution would be wisely used to help and each dime really helps. If you are a regular contributor to Samaritan’s Purse, you know that your money is already on the way to help these people.

It forced more than 750,000 from their homes as it lashed Leyte and Samar with strong winds and 15-19-foot waves. The fast-moving storm quickly moved across the central Philippines, leaving widespread devastation in its wake….”
