If I find out the mechanics on how to volunteer for ABS-CBN's Sagip Kapamilya or GMA's Kapuso Foundtation I'll try my best to keep you guys updated. Or if you guys have more to add to that feel free to drop me a line.

Then also I have to apologize for my previous post as some people took offense and I did note that it could be offensive (That's why its categorizes in people & blogs, as I am entitled to my own opinion). Please excuse me and my companion for that behavior but I do sympathize for my fellow Filipinos who are experiencing a difficult time because of Ondoy. I did not intend to make a mockery of the situation you just have to understand that as blogger I have a tendency to use English as my medium and I do not, in any way, wish to degrade my mother tongue or my fellow countrymen. Hindi ko po pinagpipilitan ang pekeng "American accent" at maslalong hindi ko ikinakahiya ang pagiging Pilipino, ganyan lang po kasi ako magsalita ng Ingles pancencya naman po. Hindi ko po intensyon ang magpababa ng moral ng ibang tao. Humihingi po ako ng dispensa kung iyon ay nakakapanglait ng sobra.

Later days, kids
