ImageWe here at Carlos Bulosan are preparing to close our office for the Holidays. Although we want to acknowledge the state of emergency back in the homeland. The press has been calling our community partner, Kapisanan,  to see if we are able to mobilize relief efforts within the GTA for Typhoon Sendong (Washi) that struck the province of Misamis Oriental in the northern part of Mindanao, on Friday [December 16].

Although we all are not able to mobilize for this typhoon, like they did for Ondoy, there is still a huge need for people to contribute and donate. If you are starting or finishing some  shopping, think about donating to the help the victims of Typhoon Sendang on behalf of the person you are buying a gift for.

On behalf of Kapisanan and CBT here’s our recommendation of where you can donate cash. We strongly recommend cash donations, it’s much more immediate, and it’s carbon footprint-conscious.

OPERATION SAGIP MIGRANTE (Operation Migrante Relief) for the survivors of typhoon Sendong. This relief effort is organized by Migrante Canada and its chapters, in cooperation with Migrante International.
Operation Sagip-Migrante is now open for monetary donations.

Donations in cash or cheques can be deposited to the MIGRANTE ONTARIO account. Please write “For Sagip Migrante” on the Memo line.
