There is no sunshine in the Philippines today

You and I are very blessed in more ways than many of us realize.

But not many of our fellowmen back in the Philippines are, especially those who are languishing in the gutter of poverty and then hammered by back to-back super earthquake and the worst monster typhoon ever!

Let's picture ourselves and our children in their shoes....

The two natural disasters in the Philippines could conceivably leave at least 15,000 Filipinos dead and tens of thousands more, at least 60% children, displaced, with no shelter or food, much less the ability to recover soon from their misery. Their future is uncertain, shaky at best.

The Filipino United Network - USA has donated P1,000,000 to lessen the suffering of the devastated victims of these calamities. But this modest donation will only take care of about 1,500 families (4,500 to 5,000 individuals), and provide 50 tents to be used as makeshift classrooms for the countless children, whose schools were totally destroyed.

We are renewing our charitable fund-raising campaign and are calling on the compassion and generosity of caring people like you. No amount of help is too small; every little bit helps.

As I have said before, let us not wait for surgery to open our heart for the needy and desperate.

Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. FUN - USA is a 501(c)3 humanitarian advocacy Foundation in the United States, with Tax ID Number 261-71-7446.

Donations may be made conveniently and securely on this website: This website also shows a list of donors, for transparency and accountability.

Please click on and see for yourself. Your heart will melt to see the desperate victims who continue to suffer as they grieve for their dead, as shown on CNN, FOX, and all major TV channels around the world.

I am begging for your kind help and compassion. For info about the undersigned, please Google the word SCALPELPEN.

And please be a FUN Advocate by forwarding this appeal to all your contacts, including Americans, who are now well aware of this great tragedy.

Thank you, best wishes, and may God bless you and your loved ones.
