A little help would go a long way...

Below is a forwarded message I got in my email. I thought I would post it here rather than forward it again.

Hi Folks,

I'm sure you do want to help our poor people back home in the Philippines--we cannot but see the reality of their situation--it is all over the news, TV, radio, internet, etc. and it is truly heart-breaking and heartrending.

Well - God provided an easy way to help - He touched the hearts of the owners of MAYFLOWER RESTAURANT in Chinatown (Los Angeles, CA) . They are offering 50% of whatever sale they will generate on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27 - FROM 10:00 a.m.. - 10:00 p.m. (Please see attached flyer)

This will only cost you whatever you are willing to pay for a meal - at the same time that you are helping our kapwa Pilipino!

But you can help further and go an extra mile by forwarding this email / flyer to all your friends, co-workers, etc - and by word of mouth - invite them to join you for a meal at Mayflower Restaurant - you can also ask your Pastors, Employers, etc. to have the flyer posted on your bulletin - the more people who will eat there - the more funds we can get .

It is really very simple, isn't it - so I am hoping to see you there on the 27th with everybody you can invite - let us match the generosity of Ha and his family - it took a Chinese Restaurant to think of this very creative and generous way of being in solidarity with those who are suffering - God will bless them abundantly.

Salamat po mula sa puso at pagpalain tayong lahat ng Diyos!

Sr. M. Christina, rgs

What an an excellent idea and a very nice way to help! God bless Mayflower restaurant! Too bad I live out of state. Ondoy and Pepeng really affected a lot of us in one way or another, hope they don't get those kinds of typhoons often if not at all...very destructing.

There are still good souls who are ready to help anytime.


Too bad I can't go either. Well, we can help in some other ways.


I'm doing okay.


Mabuti naman at maraming tumutulong sa ating mga kababayan.
