    Hey Guys,

    I almost never post asking for something here but I just wanted you to know about the recent flooding and typhoon problem here in Manila. So if you're missing staff or outsourcing services i think this is primarily the reason why everybody is having problems. Luckily I am in the small part of the city where i am not affected by this great calamity.

    Honestly, I just thought that this was just a usual typhoon with hardcore raining and i went with my usual stuff and heard that there was flooding -- nothing unusual just didn't know the gravity of the issue.

    I just wanted to let you know that the whole metro manila is having big problems with flooding and I hope that we can find the proper avenues for donation to help our guys here. Especially the ones you outsource to. :)

    Although I honestly can't see a paypal sign or other easy way to donate. I will update this thread. I will do my part and probably help and do some charity work tomorrow by going to relief centers etc.

    Thank you for any help and I would really appreciate if you can find a paypal link or anything that would make donation easier since I really have no idea and I have taken the initiative to get this issue out and help out on our own way.

    Thanks for reading and any help will be greatly appreciated.

    all the best,

    F

    haha mate, I am not 'qualified' to accept donations or anything. I will donate a good amount for it but I don't want to be the channel for payment but I will try to look for the proper one asap.

    it's just that it's been tough when i really really thought it would be just another typhoone which happnes 8/12 months ehre in ph. :)

    gotta make a difference and I plan to do it in more ways than one .

    it's just tough especially when you realize that your friends and family are affected. even if they are just your university and highschool friends.

    gotta make a difference. :)

    yeah few deaths here and there. but nothing major. I hope everyone gets 'retrived and rescued' and I know that things will be well, but i didn't figure out that it was this worse but i am located in the least affected area and i actually thought that this just a nusiance and in effect i am realy guilty.

    Lol i was realyl scolding/wondering where my staff was for that saturday!!

    weird.

    I am from the Philippines, but fortunately not in the Manila Area. No one ever expected that the calamity would cause so much damage, I can only pray for my fellow Filipinos who are facing this unfortunate experience. My wife and little girl live there and luckily they're both ok.

    I will have no shame to ask for your help in behalf of those who were affected, please if you have a staff living in manila you can directly donate through their paypal account. They obviously need every bit of assistance during these sad times. In return it is expected of us Filipinos to look at it as a lifetime debt, which in return makes us do our best to serve you.

    There are still hundreds missing, let's just hope the authorities will find them in time.

    Thank you in behalf of my fellow Filipinos!

    Hey man I'm very sorry I didn't use the search button before making a thread. Was eager to help in my own little way as well so I posted quickly the moment it came to mind.
    Here's the link to the thread: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/122629-were-deep-shit.html#post1127042

    There's a link to other channels of donating including relief good donations in the USA and paypal as well.

    Where are you located btw? I'm in QC and we're one street close to the flood. Got a friend in Pasig still stranded on the 2nd floor with his wife and lil daughter :( Keep safe man. Will go out later to check if we could rescue my friend.

    Our team will also be going to the Philippines to help out as this is our home country. I didn't expect how bad this thing got and we'll do what we can to help out.

    Our team is accepting secure donations by Paypal also to help those who were affected by the flood. Any amount will go toward helping my people. Thank you all in advance.

    Here's the link to donate by Paypal:

    Thank you all for your support BHW!

    Outside of cash donations is there anything you need catz? I know your volunteering for the relief and whatnot, not sure if there is anything specific you need. Let me know bro.
