Operation Christmas ShareLove: Philippines + Thailand + Turkey #ShareLovePHTHTR #in #fb


One of the fondest memories that I have while growing up in the Philippines is my late father’s generous Christmas tradition of helping the less fortunate.


One of the fondest memories that I have while growing up in the Philippines is my late father’s generous Christmas tradition of helping the less fortunate.

Every year at Christmas day, he would visit depressed neighborhoods and give away money to children of all ages. He did this regularly that word spread and the line of children waiting for him every year grew longer. He found joy in helping and giving to those in need.

This Christmas, let’s step up and help those who are in need specifically victims of natural calamities in the Philippines, Thailand and Turkey.

Philippine Flooding

On Dec 16, 2011, nearly 1,000 were killed when flash floods and landslides caused by Typhoon Washi swept through riverside and coastal villages in the southern Philippines. You can help by sending your donation to the Philippine Red Cross.

Thailand Flooding

Major floods occurred during the 2011 monsoon season in Thailand which began around July 2011. The flooding is described as “the worst flooding yet in terms of the amount of water and people affected”. Over 600 people died and as of December 3rd, some areas still remained 6 feet underwater and many factory areas remained closed. You can help by sending your donation to the Thai Red Cross.

Turkey Earthquake

On Oct 23, 2011, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck eastern Turkey. The earthquake killed over 500 and injured are over 4,000. You can send your donations to the Turkish Red Crescent.
