Merry Christmas! and a Way to Help the Victims of Typhoon Sendong

Before anything, The Teen Readers would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! It has always been our favorite holiday of the year. Despite the tragedy caused by Typhoon Sendong in Cagayan De Oro here in the Philippines, we can't help but be touched to see the victims smiling and trying to lift up their spirits in celebration for Christmas. Who are we to be ungrateful and feel all down and gloomy when we can't even imagine the extent of their loss? So we, The Teen Readers decided to put up a donation button to extend what little help we could give to the victims. We also put it on our upper left sidebar and it will stay there until January 1st. All donations will be given to Sagip KapamilyaThank you so much to everyone and have a Blessed holiday!
