On the night of January 19 (incidentally, my birthday), some 600 lanterns were flown into the sky of UP Los Banos to symbolize the sympathies of the Los Banos community to the victims and survivors of typhoon Sendong (International Name: Washi) that devastated the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan in Mindanao and Dumaguete in Negros. Most importantly, the event was able to raise modest amount from the lanterns sold to individuals and organizations for the benefit of the affected residents, specifically in the rehabilitation efforts.

Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I hope that preventative measures can be put in place soon. One thing that can be done which costs nothing is each individual take responsibility for their garbage and put it where it belongs instead of throwing it all over the streets, rivers, and everywhere else.
