My son and his friends helped fold and organize the donated clothes.

Our church, Metro LA Church of Christ had a donation drive in the past 2 weeks for the victims of the Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. The members generously gave their used clothes, shoes, blankets and canned goods. It was very encouraging to see our little ones help sort, fold and organize the relief.

Several of the campus people also helped pack what is sorted. The whole experience is very uplifting seeing different people come together to support the victims. I personally had so much fun organizing. Several of the clothing and items donated are either cool, funny, funky or yukky. I saw a couple of wigs being donated! Oh yes :)…One of the best trick I’ve learned in packing is having a quality packing tape. They hold the box together especially for the heavy ones.   1465230_10152085360736563_1883222440_nAfter all the packing, we had 24 big boxes in all!…Then we headed to the LBC Cargo Warehouse in Gardena to drop off the boxes which is very close to our church building. LBC is a Philippine shipping company and they have agreed to ship our donations for free! It was also refreshing to see there are hundreds of donations waiting to be shipped.

Our local church is affiliated to the International Churches of Christ (ICOC). If you wish to give monetary donation, you may give to Hope Worldwide, our church’s benevolent arm.

Typhoon Haiyan in The Philippines

November 8, 2013 – Super Typhoon Haiyan, locally called Yolanda, swept through the central Philippines today. This storm brought 195 mph wind that shut down electricity and services among the islands. The people in Tacloban were left with nothing and are struggling to survive as they await aid.  The city of Tacloban in Leyte is the worst of all.  So far, the official death toll is at 3, 982 and many fear the number may reach 10,000. The UN reported that 673,000 people are displaced from their homes and their survival depends on help reaching them quickly. Anderson Cooper of CNN covered the disaster area.

the social network family :)

here’s comes the Halloween and as usual the edralin family is again cramming up with what to ‘wear’. I wanted something unique but i couldn’t find anything online and I didn’t have the time and energy to go buying and choosing what to get for the kids …and me…and Moses. It took me a couple days to decide i’m not gonna do anything fancy- maybe Vincent can just be another hero like every kid in town and Austria be another princess or fairy. A day before Halloween, I was updating my blog and correcting my ‘follow me’ widgets when a light bulb went off my head. We’re all gonna be logos of the social network! I have styrofoams and paint already from a previous project so I went ahead and made it. Though i didn’t have much time, i enjoyed making it and finished it the night before the Halloween. People loved it so i guess it was a success!DSCF3174DSCF3179               DSCF3176 Continue Reading →
