#YolandaPH: Raketulong!

Raketista, what's your favorite freelancer perk? "I control my own time!"? Well, here's your chance to make awesome good of that wondrous privilege for our brothers and sisters in Yolanda-stricken Visayas.

This is perfect because you CAN make time for it. And if you're all about complete independence and going all hands-on (because freelancers are like that!), then you're sure to find more excitement and fulfilment in packing and sending off relief goods than donating checks from the comforts of your home.

Here are some relief organizations in the metro that are calling out for able arms and legs:

DSWD-NROC in Pasay City. Interested volunteers can call 851-2681 to get into their organized help schedule.

Hands On Manila needs you, too. You can simply walk into the Philippine Army Gym in Taguig to be counted. Here's the map.

The Citizen's Disaster Response Center also welcomes volunteers at 72-A Times Stret, West Triangle Homes, Quezon City. You can call them at 829-9820 for inquiries.

Likewise, the Philippine Red Cross is opening its doors for 200 volunteers ASAP. Sign up here.

And for those who want more flexibility (because freelancers are like that!) --from 6am to 6pm, Project Life Visayas has your choice of 3 packing locations: In Alabang (0917-8237659), Makati (0928-4384667), and Las Pinas (0939-5273207).  Call the numbers mentioned for more details.

So what are you waiting for? Volunteer. It's your TIME, raketista.
