TV Networks aid Yolanda Victims

The country’s three largest TV networks are busy collecting and sending out emergency aid  for thousands of people devastated by Super Typhoon “Yolanda” (international name: Haiyan).

Support has been pouring in since the storm made landfall last Friday with wind speeds of up to 225 kilometers per hour - what experts say is one of the four most powerful typhoons ever recorded.

Current estimates revealed that Yolanda may have killed more than 10,000 people in what is feared to be the country’s worst natural disaster.

ABS-CBN dedicated one episode of its popular Sunday variety show ASAP as a live telethon as part of the wider Sagip Kapamilya progam also promoted in radio AM station DZMM.

In addition, ABS-CBN will be donating part of proceeds from the sale of limited edition t-shirts "Tulong Na, Tabang Na" which will go on sale within the week.

Mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Alexander Gustafsson, who visits Manila on Sunday for a Balls Channel event, will be offering part of the proceeds of his t-shirt sales for the benefit of the people hit by the typhoon.

TV5 also held a live telethon live yesterday dubbed "Gabi ng Kanta at Biyaya", successfully raising P21 million in donations within one-and-a-half hours of its launch.

GMA Network has been fairly quiet with its support for Yolanda victims, but has been collecting much-needed donations and goods via its own “Operation Bayanihan“Telethon.

Social news network Rappler posted all current open relief operations centers in the country with open hotlines and bank accounts ready for donors locally and overseas.
