Best Trip Ever: Typhoon Drive Update

Dear Trip or Treaters

Let me update you on the day that has passed. I was contacted by a local magazine/website to be featured for my efforts to help the victims of the unfortunate event that is Typhoon Ondoy. Since I promised to update those who gave, and also those who are in the loop, I'll just send you what I sent the writer... because I'm damn tired and there is so much work to do. Multitasking at its best.

We collaborated on this. and will start on Thursday

AND THEN, my uncle (who is a doctor) called me up on Monday showing his interest in doing a Medical Mission with us on Saturday... since I was on a roll I decided to take on yet another load since it was all intertwined. I found a generic drugstore and will order goods on top of the medicine which was donated over the past few days

SMS'd, Emailed, Facebooked, Twittered and posted on my blog http://www.triportreats.com regarding the three different activites we had set up!
I accepted donations of cash thru my account, goods at home, and contacted my subdivision to use the Clubhouse for our packing efforts.


  • As of today we have raised over P200k in cash and gathered overwhelming support not only in kind donations, but through helping hands especially during our packing today! We packed over 1500 bags &
