There has been a terrible lack of posts recognizing the Philippine Typhoon and that’s why I’m making this post. The Philippines just had the WORST typhoon in history called, Haiyan. Now if you have no idea about the severity, the wind speeds of this typhoon was about 250 mph, which is THREE AND A HALF TIMES THE SPEED OF THE WINDS OF HURRICANE KATRINA. imagine the damage Katrina did to the US, a developed country. The Philippines is a Third world country. Most of the people in this country live in SHACKS MADE OUT OF TRASH. It is estimated that about 10,000 PEOPLE DIED. Dead bodies literally litter the streets and are STUCK IN TREES. IF YOU GIVE ANY SHITS TODAY ABOUT FELLOW HUMANITY YOU BETTER REBLOG THIS. IM NOT ONLY DOING THIS BECAUSE MY FAMILY IS FILIPINO BUT BECAUSE THIS STORM WAS THE WORST IN HISTORY. GOD BLESS THE SOULS LOST THERE. My parents were seriously almost on the verge of tears and almost screaming. We didn’t lose anybody in our family, but it has got to hurt to know that the place you came from is IN SHAMBLES. Pls spread this if you care

Communications are down. Electricity is non-existant. Water and food are nowhere to be found. The people were so hungry and desperate to survive that they are looting from shopping malls and stores. Children were dying of starvation. Women were weeping. Men can’t do anything but watch their family suffer and die. If you ever watched some of the clips of the aftermath, you’ll literally cry. Everyone was crying, calling for relatives that they’re alright. Some people were even asking for forgiveness because they didn’t save their families. Some places that was damaged by the storm previously experienced earthquake that brought their houses down. Some evacuation centers that they thought were safe was flooded, causing children from dying. People are holding their dead families, sobbing and asking for forgiveness. They were shouting out of despair.
They don’t need money. They need food, water, medicine, clothes and a sign of hope.
We need help. They need help, everything will be appreciated. YOU MIGHT SAVE A LIFE. Please, reblog and spread the word.

URGENT: today in Russia, a terrible bill passed in the Russian parliament’s lower house that censors all things considered “gay”. It’s our local partners’ worst nightmare and we need your help.
This vote comes off the back of two brutal anti-gay murders in Russia, and the trial of a major LGBT rights organisation today.
Tell world leaders to STOP the crackdown, add your name:
This really is happening, and it’s scary as hell.
