7 "Fun" and Easy Ways to Help Typhoon Haiyan Victims #YolandaPH #ReliefPH

It's been a week since super typhoon Yolanda / Haiyan engulfed Tacloban in Leyte, and several nearby Visayan provinces in the country.  Just Google "Yolanda" and you can read about the massive destruction and the aftermath of this typhoon that brought Philippines in a state of national calamity.

I  feel helpless, seeing and hearing about what's happening on the news.  We do what we can, no matter how small.  I do feel grateful for the outpouring of love, prayers, and support from the global community, and the whole nation is thankful for all the help extended.

Whether you're in the country or living abroad, there are so many ways and channels to reach out and give aid.  Check out this infographic from Rappler for a list of organizations:

For this post, I'll just focus on other avenues for us to contribute.  If you can't send cash donations or goods, here are 7 more "fun" and easy ways to help in sending relief.
