With Philippine Red Cross CEO and Chairman of Board of Directors
Steemit Philippines, @SteemPH paid a visit today in the midst of Tropical Depression # MaringPH to the Philippine Red Cross Official Headquarters in Boni Ave, Mandaluyong.
We discussed with Mr. Ryan Jopia, their Youth Manager, how to open a Steemit account for Philippine Red Cross, how it can help @SteemPH and everyone in steemit support their cause through posts and through wallet transfers or donations. We explained how the blockchain acts as a ledger and gives transparency to these transactions. We showed them also the different ongoing projects of @SteemPH such as the Music and Art therapy for Caloocan. We also showed them the many donations that you guys made for #HelpMarawi. Awww, you guys are so great!
Shout out to @deveerei, @allmonitors, @cloh76, @surpassinggoogle, @jacobcards, @voiceshares, @philippinetrail, @saisei, @dreamiely, @donkeypong, @patriot, @jeanelleybee, @timcliff, @tjpezlo, @bearone and many more.

On October 27, they are holding a Youth Conference where 500 Youth Volunteers will be present and @SteemPH is invited to talk about our different projects and about blogging on steemit. How awesome is that?
After the meeting, we had a tour of their Operations Center were we saw the action live, how the storm was being monitored, different volunteer contacts they had at hand in case a disaster were to occur, also their call center operations who were receiving calls from their Hotline 143.
