It’s become a meh break
Recently, the Philippines was hit by Typhoon Haiyan on November 9, 2013. It is said to be one of the most devastating typhoons on record. This unfortunate occurrence has displaced over 500,000 people and the death toll is currently at 3,974 people and climbing. The Filipino people are in desperate need of food, medical supplies and assistance.
The Filipino American Student Association (FASA) at Virginia Tech has started an ongoing project to aid those that have been affected by this disaster and to raise awareness for this cause.
Here is what FASA plans on working on:
FASA will be collecting donations of non-perishable food (preferrably pre-cooked food that does not require any assistance to open, or any water), and medical supplies (gauze, bandaids and etc.) that will be given to Advancement for Rural Kids, Inc.
FASA has started collecting monetary donations from various events such as Lumpia Sales, Class Change Wars and collections from the AASU Culture show. FASA will continue to collect monetary donations throughout the semester and through various events and this will be given to UNICEF.
FASA is currently working on collaborating on projects with Oxfam America at Virginia Tech to also fundraise for this cause.
FASA is also working on raising funds through T-Shirt Sales in collaboration with Blue Ridge Graphics. These are available through an online store or in-person at the relief drive locations. On-campus pick-up orders will be available Dec. 4-14.
If you wish to donate food/medical supplies, money or pre-order a shirt. FASA will be at Squires Information Booth B on these days:
Tuesday, November 19th from 9am-12pm
Wednesday, November 20th from 9am-12pm
Thursday, November 21th from 3pm-5pm.
100% of the proceeds will go to these organizations.
Please like FASA at VT to find out more information about our relief project efforts and to keep up with our progress.
It’s clue week and although I’m super pissed at certain people and wayyy too tired… my littles are adorable and make me smile <3
…I just hope they aren’t disappointed when they meet me o.0
Hey everyone. I’m about to tell you all a really personal story, and then, I could use your help.
The blonde in the pictures above is my little sister, Rachel. She’s 14, a freshman in high school. She’s one of the smartest kids you’ll ever meet, to be honest. Smarter than me. She’s got an amazing sense of humor and the most gorgeous smile, the sort of person who just lights up a room with laughter after being in it for five minutes. Even though I’m 19 and I should be the tough one, she’s held me when I cried, and she cooks me dinner when I’m too lazy to do it, and she gives me confidence when I don’t believe in myself. We cosplay together, we fangirl together, and we talk Tumblr-speak at the dinner table. It’s not an exaggeration when I tell you this girl is my entire world. I’d do anything for her, and I love her more than words could fully describe.
On Friday, she was admitted to a psychiatric hospital after a year of battling severe depression and anxiety.
She thinks she’s ugly. She thinks her future doesn’t matter. She often hates herself, and can’t see all the amazing things everyone else knows is obvious just from their first glance at her.
The red tie on my wrist you see in the third picture was from her. Behavioral hospitals don’t allow anything with strings on them, so after she pulled out the tie for her sweatshirt, she wrapped it around my wrist for me to wear until she gets back. It might only be for a weekend, or it might be for longer. I don’t know yet.
Here’s where I’m asking for your help. At the earliest, Rachel is coming home on Sunday, but it’ll probably be longer. Still, that means I might only have two days to get the message out. I want to show her when she comes home that there are people out there who believe in her. Who think she’s beautiful and worth fighting for, worth recovery.
So please, reblog this and prove to her that she has more support than she ever realized. I’m hoping it’ll give her some confidence than she can get better.Dear followers, please spread the love! The girl who posted this is incredibly sweet and super cool. Please help her and her sister out
As a person that feels similarly toward her own younger sister: PLEASE REBLOG THIS. My sister means the world to me and I definitely would not be here without her.
I stepped off that ledge…and there was another one below <3
What a good talk
