The information and links below are places and websites that we in the UK can access to make a donation either through giving monetarily or our old clothes, shoes etc. We are all aware that Ondoy/Ketsana left parts of the Philippines under water.

· Underwear
· Blankets
· Footwear
· Towels
· Canned goods (preferably with a pull-open tab)
· Ready-to-eat food (cereal, crackers, snacks)
· Instant noodles
· Baby formula
· Diapers/Nappy
· Toiletries (shampoo, bath soap, toothbrushes)
· Medicines (Oral Rehydration salts, Sulphur Soap for protection from fungi, Cefalexin & Cloxacillin, Clotrimazole ointment creams, Analgesics and Expextorants)
• Food (long shelf life, such as canned goods)

KEG has teamed up with the student union and a bunch of other GMUL societies to try and help out in any way we can. I’m thinking we should get donation lists and organise small sponsorships for a fundraising event e.g. a jog or mens leg waxing where we can have a little fun but still give back. http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=140602610501&ref=mf
