Typhoon Haiyan is recorded as one of the - if not the strongest - typhoon in recorded history. Its strength was nearly four times as strong as that of Hurricane Katrina. The devastation Katrina left in the United States was simply horrible, but just imagine what it did to a third-world country like us. Bodies are simply lying on the roadsides, and more and more people are dying of starvation.
Now, I wasn’t expecting the amount of support I would see on tumblr, and right now I’m overwhelmed. Thank you so so much, we really do appreciate it. We appreciate the prayers and well wishes and donations.
However, please please PLEASE do NOT donate to any agencies associated with our government. The government we have is full of shit stains who only care about themselves and the amount of money they can gain from international aid. I’m a 100% certain a portion of funds donated have already been pocketed by dicks who could care less about us. None of the victims are getting the help they deserve. There have been reports of bags of food that have been scraped up of some of its original contents. Instead of five canned goods and eight packs of noodles, survivors get three cans and two packs of noodles. The amount of fuckery here is astounding. I could go on and on about politics, but that’s not the most important thing right now.
