My friend Ron created this text image to show on how you can donate via SMS to Philippine Red Cross, I don’t know how they can collect the money from the telco , but it’s a legit way from Red Cross on how you can help the people affected by the Typhoon Yolanda.

“According to http://worldpopulationreview.com/the-philippines-population-2013/ there are 98,734,798 people living in the Philippines. Lets take away half since there are children and old people without work. That leaves 49367399 people.
If all those 49367399 donate 5 pesos each 246,836,995 php for rehabilitation of Tacloban and other area.
Di naman mahirap di ba? 5 pesos lang - text na sa globe or smart -at ang donation nyo ay pupunta sa Philippine Red Cross. Sino ba laging una sa disaster response -di ba sila? Kaya tulong na! “
I tried the sms donation thing from Red Cross, but after I sent my Php 5 donation, there's no notification if my donation went through. hmmm, I will update later if ever I receive a txt back msg from Smart or Red Cross.
I just received a notification from SMART -- and I just learned that minimum to donate is Php 10.
To donate to Philippine National Red Cross. txt RED
You can only donate any of the ff amounts: 10, 25, 50, 100, 300, 500, 1000.
