Where Should You Eat Out this Weekend to Help Yolanda’s Victims?February 3, 2019
- Dwight CoWords
This isn’t for those of us in the front lines rolling up our sleeves and hauling sacks of rice in the wee hours of the morning. (Thank you!) This is for the rest of us who’ve been nailed to the walls of our homes and offices not knowing how we could help.
Here comes the easiest, most convenient, if-you-do-not-help-we-will-lose-faith-in-humanity way to help Yolanda’s victims.
These food establishments have all offered to donate portions/all of their proceeds (for a detailed breakdown, check out each one’s social media page and website) to Red Cross for aid. All you have to do is pick your favorite spot and eat.
In the unfortunate case that you’re still not convinced, realize that nobody’s asking you to be a martyr. We are asking you to be a human being.
If there’s one ironic thing about #YolandaActionWeekend, it’s that all these Filipino food businesses were brought together by an American. If you’ve got a thank you to spare, send one to Jeremy Slagle, (@mrdeliciousph) head cook at Mr. Delicious, troll with a heart, and creator of the country’s best bacon. He never asked to be recognized for any of his work in this initiative.
