COVID-19 – Here's how you can help

by - Saturday, March 21, 2020

I'm starting this blog post by saying that the feeling of uncertainty is killing me – people forced to stop working, involuntary isolation, limited market hours, etc. Suddenly waking up to not doing my usual routine definitely triggers my anxiety.

Patty Villegas - The Lifestyle Wanderer - COVID19 - Donation

I'm privileged enough because I'm staying with my family, working from home, and still able to replenish our goods from time to time. But there are our kababayans who still need to go out and work just to be able to make ends meet for their family – not just today but until all of these are over. It is heartbreaking to hear how they push to go to work amidst the pandemic. There are also frontliners who risk their lives every day to be able to contain COVID-19 cases. God knows when was the last time they had a good rest. 

Apart from washing our hands and self-quarantining, here are other ways on how we can help the frontliners and the less fortunate in the comfort of our home!

Blogger's United

Patty Villegas - The Lifestyle Wanderer - COVID19 - Bloggers United

Blogger's United and the team behind this organization never cease to amaze me with their initiative in helping those who are in need. Having a common denominator – social media – they use their influence to raise funds for our less fortunate kababayans who cannot earn a living because of the enhanced community quarantine. Head to for more details.

I hope you can spare some of your untouched daily allowances to help out those who need our help. While we don't know when this pandemic will end, we're in control of how much help we can extend to the people around us. Wishing you all safety and security during these uncertain times. ❤️
