aoikei asked: the background of your blog... oh my god

Thank you (◡‿◡✿) (here’s another edit I threw together) 

(Forgot which account I was on when I reblogged that signal boost, but it’s still pretty important so I’m not going to delete it).

STOP SCROLLING FOR A SECOND. JUST STOP.

notkorra:

EVERYONE JUST STOP FOR A FUCKING SECOND AND FUCKING LISTEN TO ME.

METRO MANILA, PHILIPPINES IS IN DANGER. MY CITY IS HALF-WAY SUBMERGED IN WATER. WE’RE PRACTICALLY FUCKING ATLANTIS RIGHT NOW. FOR MORE THAN THIRTY FUCKING HOURS, IT’S BEEN FUCKING RAINING NON-STOP. NON-FUCKING-STOP.

AND IT’S FUCKING STRONG. THE FLOODS ARE REALLY BAD HERE. SOME PEOPLE HAD TO EVACUATE THEIR FUCKING HOMES BECAUSE THE FLOODS REACH THEIR ROOFS.

AND I SEE THIS POST THAT HAS MORE THAN 4,000 NOTES, THAT JUST SHOWED PICTURES TAKEN BY SOMEONE WHO LIVES IN A SAFE AREA OUT OF THE COUNTRY. NO OFFENSE MEANT, BUT HERE I FUCKING AM, PRACTICALLY UPDATING EVERYONE ON THE REPORTS ON HOW THINGS ARE GOING, AND I’M FUCKING IGNORED.

I LIVE HERE. I EXPERIENCE IT. AND I AM FUCKING TELLING YOU THAT WE FUCKING NEED YOUR HELP.

NOT AWARENESS. HELP.

CLICK HERE IF YOU THINK YOU CAN DONATE—YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIVE IN MANILA TO DO SO. 

IF YOU THINK I’M A BITCH, WELL, NEWSFLASH, MY COUNTRYMEN ARE FUCKING DROWNING IN THIS WEATHER, AND I DON’T FUCKING CARE. IF YOU THINK I’M DOING THIS FOR ATTENTION, THEN, YEAH, I FUCKING AM. BECAUSE WE NEED IT.

I DON’T HAVE A PHOTO BECAUSE I CAN’T GO OUT TO TAKE ONE, BUT I CAN FUCKING HEAR THE RAIN COMING DOWN IN TORRENTS.

WE’RE DOING ALL THAT WE CAN HERE—LETTING RESCUE TEAMS KNOW WHO NEED RESCUING AND LETTING THE NEWS MEDIA KNOW WHO ARE DOING RELIEF OPERATIONS—AND IF YOU WANT TO HELP, YOU CAN. DON’T JUST TELL PEOPLE TO BE OKAY.

HELP THEM BE OKAY.
