Blogging and other forms of social media is a great way to share information. With our blogs, Facebook and Twitter, we can share our joys and lament our misfortune. In the recent years, we’ve witnessed how the online community banded together to report on the current state of the country after a typhoon has hit and how it inspired people to take action.
In 2011, the Philippine Blog Awards has partnered with Habitat for Humanity to build the Bahay Blogger or the Blogger House for the residents of Navotas, who have lost their homes when typhoon Pedring battered Metro Manila. In the spirit of Bayanihan, we’re calling on everybody to donate to the Bahay Blogger fund or if you’re strapped for cash, help us spread the word.
If you have a blog, you can post a badge similar to what I have on my sidebar simply by posting this code on your site:
No blog but on Twitter, Facebook, Plurk, Google+, and other social networking sites? Share the link to the Bahay Blogger fundraising page (http://www.habitatyouthbuild.org/member/clairealgarme/bahayblogger). The future residents of this house will surely appreciate your effort!
[UPDATE] People can deposit to Habitat for Humanity Philippines Foundation, Inc. BPI Current Account No. 2421-0014-67. Please fax the deposit slip with your name and contact details (and to indicate that it is for the Bahay Blogger) to 856-5389 or e-mail a scanned copy to firstname.lastname@example.org.
