    Recently, an active volcano located in Batangas, Philippines had a sudden eruption of small rocks and ashes resulting to an ashfall to its nearby provinces. Evacuation and rescue are being done around its 10-15 km radius. Earthquakes also occurred around Batangas and people are in DIRE NEED OF HELP. Taal Volcano is currently at ALERT LEVEL 4, meaning a hazardous eruption is about to happen within days.

    All proceeds will SOLELY be used to buy goods, protective gears (especially masks) food, water and medication for the victims affected by the ashfall. PLEASE, A LITTLE DONATION CAN GO A LONG WAY! HOW WE WILL DISTRIBUTE THE FUND:

    A group of volunteers who will buy and pack the goods needed. (Food, water, clothes, protective gears/masks, medication) we have friends who have trucks and cars to deliver the goods to the designated evacuation areas! WE WILL UPDATE ALL ONCE WE STARTED ROLLING.
