From restaurants mounting “Dine for a cause” projects down to private individuals’ offering their skills and services with proceeds going to various organizations, there is no shortage of ways in which you can help those affected by Typhoon Yolanda.
Yesterday, I came across this post on the Ateneo Initiative for Korean Studies (AIKS) 아테네오 한국학 선도 Facebook page:
YOLANDA, YOU AND HALLYU: Pagbulig, Pagtulong, 도움
It’s time for Filipinos and Koreans to work hand-in-hand again to extend help to our brethren from the Visayas region. Our solidarity must work not only in good but also in bad times.
For Kpop fans out there, perhaps you have old or extra Kpop goodies (or other goodies for that matter) that you can contribute for auction — all proceeds will go to victims of Yolanda!
PLEASE SEND ALL KPOP DONATIONS TO THE MODERN LANGUAGES DEPARTMENT, SCHOOL OF HUMANITIES, ATENEO DE MANILA UNIVERSITY (MON-FRI, 9AM to 5PM)
For inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com / 09272310070 / 09239457227
I planned on selling some items early this year (alongside the KPop stuff I bought in Korea still lying around in my boxes) but I didn’t have time to work on it. Maybe stalling for that is a blessing. Now these items really have to go.
For KPop fans, I hope you can lend your support in this cause either by donating extra items or by participating in the auction. Salamat/kamsahamnida/thank you!
