3. Donate your blood, canned food, old clothes, shoes…

Depending on the locale, you can donate just about anything to benefit disaster victims.

You can also be a catalyst for other people to donate by raising funds through the Red Cross and other services. You could organize a local drop-off spot where people could donate their unwanted canned food, clothes and shoes.

For Philippines disaster, Google has created a list of all the drop-offs currently in the country, among other disaster resources. We highly recommend you check it out if you’re interested in helping the disaster victims of Typhoon Ondoy.
