Bb Pilipinas Helps Fellow Binibini from Bohol

Ms Joyce with Mayor Nila Montero & your blogger
I got the surprise of my life when friends from all over the world sent messages of concern and asked how we are in Bohol.

The biggest surprise however came from 1985 Bb Pilipinas- Universe & 1981 Miss Young Philippines Joyce Ann Burton- Titular, the author of where I am a frequent visitor and commenter

Ms Joyce called me up to ask how I was and how fellow Boholanos are coping. You see, Ms Joyce fell in love with our island the moment she stepped foot in Bohol when we invited her to be one of the judges for the 2012 Miss Panglao Beauty Pageant

When I told Ms Joyce that Miss Bohol Sandugo 2005 and Bb Pilipinas- World 2006 Anna Maris Igpit was organizing a relief operations project and that I was hoping she could help spread the news about her fellow Binibini’s volunteer project, she asked me for Anna’s private number

One thing led to another and here it is from Ms Joyce Burton’s blog:

Anna Maris Igpit asks for help in behalf of Boholanos who recently suffered a 7.2 earthquake

Just got off the phone with Anna Maris Igpit, Bb. Pilipinas World 2006 who informed me that she had just set up a relief operations project called Oplan Bangon Bohol in response to the shocking 7.2 earthquake that rocked the island province of Bohol.

Anna Igpit is from Panglao, a sleepy beach-side town on one of the tips of the island.

Here is her message to you:

I am currently at a loss for words now with all the help and support we are getting from our Kababayans from all over the country and the world.

Thank you to everyone who extended help and for those of you who wish to donate or volunteer, you are all very welcome. This just gives me hope that our Bayanihan spirit is still very much alive. Our beloved province of Bohol may have been shaken, but not our faith.
We are descendants of Dagohoy, we have strong blood. We shall rise again. BANGON BOHOL!

Bangon Bohol is a team of young Boholanos from Manila, Davao and Cebu. Their first action was to set up a Facebook Page where people can get information on how to donate relief goods.

Anna says they are welcoming cash donations as well.

She says, “please private message me on Facebook and I’ll get in touch with those who want to make cash donations.”

Please help our fellow Boholanos who are badly in need of food, water & blankets

Thank you to 1985 Bb Pilipinas- Universe Joyce & 2006 Bb Pilipinas- World Anna Maris Igpit
