My country, the Philippines, was recently hit by a supertyphoon, named Yolanda (or Haiyan, internationally). It wreaked havoc in the Visayas region, particularly the provinces of Samar, Leyte, north Cebu, Negros, Panay, as well as in Romblon, Mindoro and Palawan.
My family and I are all right, but the extent of the destruction in these areas, and all those lives lost, is truly heartbreaking. We're helping out as much as we can, and hopefully, through the efforts of all those who are lending a hand, those affected by this typhoon, can recover.
By the way, fandomaid is hosting a buy-it-now fundraiser for the victims of typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan. I put up an offer here.
I'm offering original fic (Philippine mythology and folklore, as well as the Sinukuan and Tikbalang series) and fanfic (Noli/Fili, because I noticed no one had offered it yet, as well as Trese, since I was working on that crossover fic anyway). Thank you!
