MANILA, Philippines – Megastar Sharon Cuneta and daughter KC Concepcion pledged millions of pesos to relief operations for the victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), which devastated provinces in the Visayas after hitting land on Friday, November 8.

Yolanda ravaged the Visayan provinces, mainly Leyte and Samar, where survivors have been left scavenging for food amid the ruins.

Some estimates say at least 10,000 are feared dead and losses are expected to reach US$15 billion. President Benigno Aquino however told CNN the number of dead, so far, might be closer to 2,500.

According to ABS-CBN, Concepcion pledged to donate P5 million pesos to ABS-CBN's Sagip Kapamilya Foundation, on morning talk show "Kris TV." The show aired on November 13.

Concepcion, who is also an ambassador for the United Nations World Food Programme, pledged P3 million for immediate use and P2 million for future rebuilding.

The actress, who is currently shooting for a film in Ilocos, has been using social media to urge people to donate.

Miss World Megan Young: 'No typhoon can bring Filipinos to their knees if we’ll be united' November 14, 2013 4:20pm 49

Bagamat nasa ibang bansa para tuparin ang kanyang duties bilang Miss World 2013, aware si Megan Young sa ginawang pananalasa ng bagyong Yolanda sa Pilipinas.

Inihayag nga ni Megan ang kanyang saloobin sa nangyaring kalamidad sa bansa, sa pamamagitan ng mga post niya sa kanyang Twitter account na @meganbata.

Sa kabila ng mahirap na sitwasyon, naniniwala ang beauty queen-actress na kakayanin ito ng mga Pinoy:

“No typhoon can bring Filipinos to their knees if we’ll be united.”

Sana raw ay manatiling matatag ang mga Pinoy:

“Please hold on tight my dear Philippines… #unity”

Ipinagdarasal din daw niya ang mga naging biktima ni Yolanda. Maging ang bayan daw ng kanyang ina sa Antique ay nasalanta rin ng bagyo: “Praying for everyone that was struck by Yolanda.. My mom’s hometown, Antique, was also hit by the storm..”

Nagpasalamat naman si Megan sa lahat ng mga bansang tumutulong sa Pilipinas: “Thank you so much to all the countries that have been helping the Philippines! Thank you for helping us get through this… #unity #onelove”

Humingi rin ng suporta si Megan sa kanyang Twitter at Instagram followers para sa fundraising activity na gagawin ng kanyang kapatid na si Lauren Young at kaibigang si Saab Magalona.
Ito ang Ukay Alalay, na isa sa mga kalahok sa Bazaar Love Triangle, na magaganap sa Nobyembre 16 sa Heima Brixton sa Kapitolyo, Pasig.

“Ukay Alalay (@lo_young @saabmagalona) will be at this event selling old clothes/shoes. Some of my stuff will be sold as well. 100% of the funds raised will be going to the victims of #YolandaPH.”

Nakikiisa rin si Megan sa panawagan ng pagtulong sa mga nasalanta ng bagyo, sa pamamagitan ng pag-tweet at re-tweet ng mga paraan kung paano makakapag-donate sa iba’t ibang ahensiya, gaya sa Red Cross, DSWD, Gawad Kalinga, at Caritas Manila.

FEELING BETTER.

Samantala, sa interview ni Megan na inilathala sa Miss World website, ibinalita niyang maayos na ang kanyang kalagayan ngayon matapos ma-involve sa aksidente sa isang orphanage sa Haiti kamakailan, kung saan nalaglag siya kasama ng mga bata mula sa second floor.

Hindi man siya lubusang nasaktan, iniisip pa rin ni Megan ang nangyari dahil ilang mga bata ang nasaktan, at pati si Miss World chairperson Julia Morley ay sumailalim sa hip operation at nagpapagaling ngayon.

Lumabas ang interview ni Megan sa Miss World website bago pa manalasa ang bagyong Yolanda sa Pilipinas, kaya hindi pa siya natanong tungkol dito.

Sabi ni Megan, “I’m a bit better, I’m not as shaken as I was a couple of days ago.

"I’ve been able to rest and analyze in my mind what has happened and now I’m a bit more relaxed and feeling better.”

Hindi raw makapipigil ang mga ganitong aksidente sa kanyang intensiyong tumulong sa mga taong nangangailangan sa buong mundo.

Sa tingin niya, ito raw ang totoong kahulugan ng motto ng Miss World na “Beauty with a purpose.”

Aniya, “I think it’s an eye-opener not only for me, but for everyone else.

"It’s something that people can look at and can see what’s going on and think about what they can do to help.

"I mean, you hear so much about beauty with a purpose. But what exactly is it?

"This is it. It’s about going to places that need the world’s support, finding out exactly what they need, and giving it to them.”

MORE CHARITY WORKS.

Dahil nga sa aksidente ay na-cut short ang pagbisita niya sa Haiti.
Ipinapangako naman niya na muli siyang babalik dito.

“Since we weren’t able to visit the area of Pestel, which is where our major Beauty with a Purpose project is, we will be coming back to see you and to finish our trip.

"I have seen the medical plans and the water bucket plans that are underway, and I can’t wait to share them with the people of the region.

"I also hope to raise money this year for the orphanage that we visited and at which the accident took place.

"The kids deserve a better living environment, and we hope to give that to them when we visit Haiti again.”

Marami pa raw naka-schedule gawin si Megan para sa Miss World sa mga susunod na buwan.

“Well, I have quite a lot of trips on the cards in the coming few months.

"I will be travelling back to New York in a few weeks where we have several Charity events going ahead.

"We aim to raise as much money for the Haiti relief fund and also to continue to raise awareness of the situation in the country.

"I will also be meeting with the Filipino community in New York, to meet them and raise funds for both Haiti and the Tuloy Foundation and the PGH.

"It should be a lot of fun, but also raise as much money as we can.

"I also have trips to Hong Kong, and to Jakarta, where we will be meeting with lots of interesting people, as well as catching up with MNC, the host partners of the Miss World 2013 competition.

"It’s a non-stop lifestyle being Miss World, and although it can be tough, I’m enjoying every second of it.”

GOING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS.

Sa interview pa rin ni Megan na lumabas sa Miss World website, inihayag niya ang kagustuhang umuwi ng Pilipinas sa darating na Pasko.

“This year, I also hope to go home to the Philippines and spend time with the family, and hopefully get to visit PGH [Philippine General Hospital] and Tuloy Foundation to spend it with the kids there as well.”

Ibinahagi rin ni Megan kung ano ang isang typical "Megan Young Christmas."

“Every year, we go back to my family house in the province, and all my friends and their families come to the house.

"We have a big backyard where we lay out one table with lots of food that everybody brings.

"Since it’s warm in the Philippines, we have a barbecue out in the back and everybody is singing karaoke and dancing the night away.

"We don’t always have gifts, but the company is what we cherish the most about that night.

"It’s a nice time for everybody to get together and enjoy the company.”

Natanong din siya kung anong regalo ang gusto niyang matanggap kay Santa Claus.

“Oh, my gosh, I didn’t think about that!

"I like surprises so I’m excited to see what Santa has for me and I will probably lay out some milk and cookies for him too!” -- Glen P. Sibonga, PEP

Artists, musicians, businesses organize relief efforts for Yolanda victims By BONG STA. MARIANovember 13, 2013 8:07pm (Updated 4:03 p.m., November 14)

More than 600,000 people have been displaced, and the death toll is estimated to reach 10,000. The destruction brought about by super typhoon Yolanda—one of the strongest the world has ever seen—has left central Philippines starving, thirsty, mourning.

Relief efforts have begun pouring in from other countries since the destruction, but the country needs more. The list below mainly focuses on local art and literature, music events, retail companies, and other fundraising efforts.

Art Works, a local non-profit organization working for multinational ad agency Leo Burnett Manila, has invited local artists to contribute their works to raise funds for typhoon victims. All proceeds will go to relief efforts—half will be sent to the Philippine Red Cross, and the other half will be spent for buying relief goods. Artwork details and prices are all available on their Facebook page.

As to how to the breakdown of where the proceeds will go, they said, "Upon attending AidCouture on Saturday, we'll be sending the money and the goods to Red Cross directly. We are part of both projects with different executions but with the same vision.

"AidCouture, another project for Red Cross, showcases pre-owned clothes to sell and open for auction, and the proceeds will go the the relief efforts for Yolanda. We're also representing Leo Burnett Manila and all the other ad agencies and artists around the country."

Art Works credits Publicis Jimenez Basic for the logo and relief efforts.

Aside from accepting cash and in kind donations, the 2013 Bloom Arts Festival on Friday, November 15 at The Collective in Makati will also be donating a percentage of its raffle ticket sales (where people will get a chance to win art prints, postcards, postcards, and other merchandise). They will issue confirmation receipts and use the money to buy relief goods which will in turn be handed over to Red Cross.

Pilipinas Street Plan’s project “TACart” invites artists to donate old and new works. All sales will be sent to the Philippine Red Cross. Details to be included in the email: name, title, size, medium, price (maximum of P10,000).

Artist Kitkat Pecson is selling prints (edition of five, signed) for P2,500 each. All proceeds will be donated to typhoon victims. Send an email to hello@kitkatpecson.com if interested. She will be the one to donate to Red Cross and will share the receipts online as well.

Artist Apol Sta. Maria, who will be having his first solo show "Oil on Canvas" on Saturday, November 15, will donate the show's profits to typhoon victims. The show will be held at the Liongoren Gallery at 111 New York Ave. cor. Stanford St, Cubao, Q.C. Attendees may also bring donations in kind. Exhibit-goers will be issued receipts (care of the Liongoren Gallery). The gallery owners will also personally deliver in kind donations to affected provinces.

There are also bags for Samar, Palawan, Cebu, and Iloilo. Photo from TheCuriousStudio blog.

"Art Para sa Lahat. Para sa Visayas" was set up by Geloy Concepcion. This is a Facebook page where anyone can buy artworks donated by other artists—similar to Art Works, but a separate initiative.

As to the breakdown of monetary funds, he said, "I will issue vouchers. Para lang mas madaling ma-liquidate. And 'di sila magbabayad hangga't hindi ko dinadala mga paintings. I will deliver the artworks personally … I will post all the transactions, total amount ng sold artworks, buyers with their artworks. Publicly on Facebook din after ko mabigay lahat ng paintings sa buyers at ma-idonate yung fund."

Businesses

Advocacy communications group Channel Good and The Curious Studio have launched The Goody Bag, which sells totes designed by artist Wiji Lacsamana for P250. All sales will go to beneficiaries in Cebu, Iloilo, Leyte, Palawan, and Samar (to be sent through ATM and GCash, and hand-delivered to families). For orders, contact goodybagph@channelgood.org.

They will issue acknowledgment receipts and get the contact details of all the customers to update them on which specific families they helped, and how much they have donated.

Resto-bar

Today x Future at 7-T Gen. Malvar St., Cubao Q.C., accepts cash and donations in kind (rice, canned goods, powdered milk—although it might be better to donate food that doesn't need water or electricity to be cooked—blanket, vitamins, kitchen, and hardware).

Palanca awardee Dean Alfar, author of "The Kite of Stars and Other Stories" and "Salamanca," opened a call for submissions for an English-language digital anthology Yolanda Relief Anthology. "You do not have to be a Filipino to submit a story, only a writer who wants to help out the Philippines," the call reads.
