[Letters] Heartened by worldwide response to kababayans

In response to the editorial "Our Common Humanity":

I am heartened by the response of Filipinos and their friends in the U.S. and all over the world in helping our kababayans back home. A heartfelt thanks also, to Positively Filipino for the updates and for giving us the information on how to help. I heard that the response to AARP’s call for help was enormous and is now over $500,000.  AARP is providing the full match, which brings up the contributions through AARP to over 1 million dollars.  As more help pours in the additional funds will also be given to the typhoon victims.
