Ladies (and Gents)! It’s that time of the year– in fact, in exactly 14 days, we celebrate Christmas! And this also happens to again be the perfect time for me to clean out my closet of bags that I no longer use– as these will need to go to better homes!
Along the same lines again, I am earmarking some of my own pieces to be sold (and special thanks to my friend DCV as well as fellow baghag JanetteC who have sent over their bags as well) to help my Nana’s families in Leyte, as 3 of her siblings and their families– 2 from BayBay and 1 from Ormoc had lost everything they had to Yolanda. Honestly, I have always remained somewhat detached when it comes to news about people who have been affected by calamities, but this time around, tragedy like this really hit close to home. I guess it is true what they say– that you won’t really know what it’s like until you experience it yourself. And while we were fortunate to have been spared, it is equally disheartening to see a loved- one cry over relatives that had not yet been heard from (at the time), and disheartening to see the pain in her eyes and how she struggles to move forward knowing her siblings are in dire need (and the news that no government agency had yet gone to their area to help or distribute relief goods until just last week– nearly 1 month after the typhoon left the country). Anyway, enough rambling on from me, I’m already posting some of the bags for Sale to benefit my Nana’s families here. At least with the proceeds, I do know for sure that it is going straight to her siblings who have been directly affected, as opposed to agencies who channel funds to smaller groups as well. Accountability this way is straightforward.
