Thank you....thank you... Angels

**video taken from Go Shorty,
thank you for making such wonderful video
that touches our hearts


Dear Friends:

Let me tell you a story. A non-beauty related one.

Everyone probably knew about the Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana) that hit our country hard last September 26th. I took action by helping out our dear friends who weren't as lucky as I am, people who lost their homes or worst, even loved ones. My help was small --- old clothes, water, food ...

When I told this story to my dear friend online (a friend whom I met because of blogging), and shared some a video via twitter on what really happened on that fateful day... it was just my way of sharing what's happening on our side of the world and it's just a way for me to relieve the stress that's going on in my life too....

The dear angel said: "We will help, I'll get back to you next week".

I forgot about it... went on with my usual stressful day...
When I opened my mail, I got a message saying:

"Please check your paypal account"

Seriously, I've got the help from people whom I haven't met personally, but only through blogging. Now, who says beauty blogging is superficial? I am seriously touched... and with the generous amount...it says....

"Hope it comes useful to help your community"

I am seriously in tears. These are the group of people who took the effort to come together, to collect donations just to help other people, yes, not even their own countrymen...they are seriously angels...

On behalf of the victims from the Typhoon, I want to say THANK YOU so much from the bottom of our hearts, for the food, the water, the blankets that I can purchase with the amount received.

To the Group of Angels, I know all of you would like to keep this confidential and I respect the request, but I've said it before and I'll say it again...THANK YOU for answering the prayers of my countrymen. I will be purchasing more necessities for the victims. I assure you, the amount I received will be going to the rightful places! I will keep you girls informed!

GOD BLESS your kind hearts!
You girls know who you are!
*hugs*

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

Stay positive!

  7. Thank you for this. Unfortunately I'm one of those people who was hit by Ondoy. I never felt more scared when I was standing on the roof and watching the house go under the flood.

    But I'm still thankful that we were together when it happened, and we still have a roof over our heads to clean up.

    I'm also thankful for the all the people, who without hesitation helped and prayed for all of us affected. :)

    And because of that, I am actually doing a giveaway in my blog. Just something of a thanksgiving thing. :)

  12. that's wonderful, and thank you. i know Aubrey (Fafinettex3) had a youtube appeal as well.

    i've turned off a few of my "friends" when i started beauty blogging but i've gained new ones both at work and online. everything evens out in the end i guess.

    I am just happy that we are all chipping in some way, big or small.

    thank you for this post.
