Hi Renz. You can keep it in a safety box if you are taking donations on site. And then you can send that in bulk to your recipient in the PH via money transfer. Good luck on the fund raising!

On my recent visit to Iligan, just weeks before Sendong, I had the pleasure of meeting with the Iligan Bloggers Society Inc. on several occasions. I am very impressed with this group.

As I have been monitoring Tropical Storm Sendong and the resulting Calamity, since the first raindrops began to fall the IBS originated ” One For Iligan ” relief effort has proven to be one of the most effective. First with a quick, convienient way for making Worldwide Donation via Paypal, First to come up with a theme ( One For Iligan ) and the First to display a logo that became so popular, other non-related groups have adopted it, making it a Universal Logo.

When I have made donations to past Iligan Calamities, it was a rather long process for my donation to get there. With their Paypal donation account, this time my First and only choice was Iligan Bloggers Society.

When I learned that members of this group were financing their operation out of their own personal money, I sent a separate donation, via a different international money transfer method, to help with their operating expenses to additionally assure that NONE of the relief donations shall be used for ” administration or operating costs ” incurred by IBS. 100 Per Cent of your relief effort Donation will go to the relief of Sendong Victims.

There are thousands and maybe millions of Blogs on the internet. I have often wondered who really reads them. With the overwhelming and continued response to the Iligan Bloggers Society Inc. ” One For Iligan ” donation Drive, it looks like Internet Blogs really do have a worldwide following.

Congratulations to Iligan Bloggers Society for a continuing job well done. Thank you for being First in making it possible from concerned people from all over the world to contribute towards your efforts.

Iligan City & Iligan Bloggers Society Inc.

Simply Amazing !

Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I hope that preventative measures can be put in place soon. One thing that can be done which costs nothing is each individual take responsibility for their garbage and put it where it belongs instead of throwing it all over the streets, rivers, and everywhere else.
