Just to share a thought: the initial reaction of giving leads to an outpouring of aid in the first weeks after an incident. However, as a staff of another charitable institution I interviewed before said, the aid tends to trickle down in the ensuing weeks or months when aid is still very much needed. I just noticed some posts in the social media networks regarding worries that December might be a bit late in raising more funds. As I've written earlier, every little bit helps and no aid is too late -- be it money, food, clothes, and of course, prayers. While we may never understand why our country has been visited by one calamity after another especially in the light of the earthquake in Bohol just weeks ago, all I know is that each one becomes an opportunity to rise above the occasion and help each other.
