We've all seen the news. We all want to help. How? Every bit of help counts, whether you go to the places hit by super typhoon Yolanda and extend whatever help you can, or gather essential supplies and organize donation drives, or donate both in cash and in kind, or rally up other people to also help with you -- all these things count. Don't think that since you as a single person can do just little, you might as well not do it at all. Even little things, when put together, can mean and be something big. You can even help as you eat.
Thanks to the laudable efforts of Jeremy Slagle a.k.a. Mr. Delicious in spearheading #YolandaActionWeekend, local chefs, restaurateurs, food purveyors, and home bakers have now come together in the spirit of sharing and giving.
This weekend, should you decide to eat out, please consider dining at these establishments that have pledged a portion of their proceeds to benefit the Philippine Red Cross:
Here are some other restaurants, cafes, and food purveyors also willing to donate a part or even all of their sales to various charitable institutions for the victims of super typhoon Yolanda:
