PLEASE READ: you can help to make a Christmas miracle.

Post by Moses » Fri Dec 27, 2019 5:19 pm

I'm writing this post after getting the OK from Gaybutton.
Sorry for my poor English.

Usually Christmas brings happy times to families. Not this year. At this Christmas house of Siamroads guide on Philippines - https://siamroads.com/jay-em-guide-boracay/ - has been totally destroyed by Typhoon Ursula :(

https://news.abs-cbn.com/news/12/26/19/ ... -to-ursula

Jay-em is 22 yo, second oldest kid in a family of 6 kids, 2 parents. His parents are farmers. At Siamroads we are already collecting money to help him. I never did it before, but now I ask you to help as well, since at Siamroads alone we can't collect enough money. Please join us and make a donation if you can. Let's do a Christmas miracle for family with 6 kids.

The best and direct way for donations: PayPal. Please make donations in USD or Philippine pesos. Jay-em's address for donations via PayPal [email protected]

Please help!

Moses does indeed have my OK. After all he has done for this board I hope everyone reading this will come through for him.

To send money without a PayPal account just go to PayPal's front page and from there click the link Send Money> Send Money Online. From there it will be possible to send a payment to any email address.

I hope they are going to build "simple and solid" with ample diagonal cross bracing and the roof firmly bolted to the walls. My general impression is that a few % extra spent on intelligent reinforcement can make a big difference (my profession was engineering, although not civil engineering).

PayPal does not want to load up on the dismally slow hotel Wi-Fi, in one of Thailand's less developed neighbours. Shall try in a coffee shop tomorrow.

I hope he's going to do just a little bit of research into wind resistant building methods.
Things like cross bracing in the walls and some steel straps to hold the roof structure down.
