When we asked what things the folks most severely affected by the recent earthquake in Bohol needed, the answer was clean drinking water. How ironic that the island which had previously been viewed to have an abundant supply of potable water, now faces fear that their supplies are contaminated, and require bottled water from elsewhere. All of us at Zubuchon, and in a private capacity as Marketman and family, are donating several thousand bottles of clean drinking water, and some folks are underwriting the transport of goods by chartered bancas directly to the worst stricken coastal areas of Bohol. None of this will pass local governments, just straight to people who need them.
How can you help from anywhere on the planet? Here’s how. For every single reader comment I get on this post, up to a maximum of 1,000 comments, I will personally donate another bottle of water in your “name” to folks in need. That’s it. No sweat off your back, just a comment, and you will do something for those who need it most. In your comment, simply state where you are on this planet (say city or country) and state what is your favorite (or you consider your most memorable post) from the nearly 3,700 posts in the archives of this blog that is roughly 9 years old. That’s it. Get your friends and family to leave a comment… the faster we get to 1,000, the faster I can get more water to the folks in Bohol. Only one comment per email address please. All of us at Zubuchon, and Marketman & family thank you from the bottom of our combined Cebuano/Boholano hearts. :)
