As a nation, we should all try our best to help our brothers and sisters in the typhoon-stricken areas. We shouldn't tell ourselves that we can't do anything. Even the smallest of donations can go a long way. But aside from directly giving money, food, water, clothing, blankets and other relief items, there's another way we can help. By eating out.
Spearheaded by Jeremy Slagle (Mr. Delicious), restaurants, cafes and food purveyors have united for #YolandaActionWeekend. With this initiative, participating establishments have pledged a portion (or all) of their proceeds to help the victims of the typhoon, to be coursed through the Philippine Red Cross.
So if you're eating out this weekend, check out this list and consider dining in any one of them. You'll not only be treating yourself to a scrumptious meal, but can also extend help.
There are also other establishments not on this list but are donating their proceeds.
If you're interested to donate money, food and water, clothing and other relief items, you may want to check these out.
Our brothers and sisters need all the help. Let's all share what we have.
Please help spread the word. For every FB share and retweet until 11:59PM of November 17, The Purple Doll will be donating P10 to the Philippine Red Cross.
Disclaimer: This is not a propaganda. I just want to help get the word out and reach people who are dining out this weekend. If you're going to eat out anyway, best to do it at restaurants which have pledged to donate part or all of their proceeds. Also, I consider The Purple Doll and me as two separate entities. Thanks!
