TP Friends, there's clearly no better time than now to remind ourselves that the true meaning of Christmas is giving. I hope that all of us can find it in our hearts to share whatever we can - time, energy, cash, goods, relief equipment - to our kababayans who are most in need in these trying times.

Here's a list of all relief centers and foundations where you can volunteer or send your donations:

2. Sagip Kapamilya will be accepting donations such as rice, canned gods, noodles, biscuits, coffee, sugar, clothes, blankets, mats and medicines.
