Thank You Dance Manila



In October, one of the website/blog I have been regularly contributing to has finally announced its end. www.DanceManila.com bids adieu to the community and its readers. Though as they said to their avid followers, it was never about just a website / blog, but about the community that came together and connected through Dance Manila. With the booming dance community in all parts of the country, their purpose has been achieved.

Their post on their FB page:
Long time everyone! As the saying goes "All good thing (must) come to an end." Dance Manila is officially shutting down....
Posted by Dance Manila on Monday, 26 October 2015

Thank you for the opportunity. Writing for Dance Manila helped me reconnect with one of my passion. Helped me come to terms with my doubts and made me meet new friends. Dance has been and will always be a key part in my being.

To all the local dance community, dance crews and friends thanks for entrusting me with the power of giving you a voice. Hope you'd all still have me at your events though, as I'm sorely missing the scene and everyone so much.

This won't mean the end for my writing for the dance community, nope. Though my readership was never as big and as specific as Dance Manila, I will continue to write about dance and the community here in my humble mumble jumble blog. We just found a new home.

Roof for Relief

Also read in PhilYCM
The world saw the devastation the super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) left in its wake. Northern Cebu was one of the regions badly hit by the typhoon which left over 5,000 families' homes destroyed. Among the many relief aid initiatives for victims, Roof for Relief -as the name suggests, has a more targeted goal.

Roof for Relief is A Gawad Kalinga project to provide roofs for more than 5,000 families affected by Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda).

Typhoon Yolanda's strong winds have practically ripped off the roofing of thousands, rendering structures and houses unlivable and unsafe. Roof for Relief aims to provide long-term solution to help those affected in Northern Cebu to rise up and rebuild their homes.

The program is targeting to rebuild 5,000 roofs for 5,000 families. With a donation of P,5000 you could be putting roof on someone's home. The P5,000 (approx. US$120.00) will be for the materials to make the roofs. For more information on Roof for Relief's operations, you can check the FAQ tab in their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/RoofForRelief/app_203351739677351



Here's how you can help:

And if you're still looking to give a meaningful gift this season, Roof for Relief has this solution of donating in behalf of someone, it would also be great gift for those affected.
