(SPOT.ph) The world sent us love when Yolanda hit Tacloban and today is a good day to pay it forward. On April 26, a devastating earthquake hit Nepal and millions of people now need support. Here are ways you can send aid.
It's probably the first thing that you check in the morning—now you can use it to send a little love to Nepal. Facebook has set up a simple page where you can send anything from P100 to P1,000 (or more) via credit card or Paypal. All you have to do is visit their Nepal Quake Support page. The best part is that Facebook will match the donations its users give.
If you're more comfortable sending your money to a named charity that you trust, the Philippine Red Cross won't require you to pour anything over your head. You can just click on Donate and they'll take care of the rest. Transactions are made via credit card, Paypal, and Dragonpay. Visit their official website to donate now. Alternatively, you can send cash donations through these accounts:
Banco de Oro (Port Area)

Metrobank (Port Area)
Swift Code: MBTC PH MM
Bank of the Philippine Islands (Port Area)

You can also donate via text:
