It goes without saying that the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan has been disheartening and has emotionally affected people worldwide. We cannot possibly know what the typhoon victims are feeling and we can only hope that everyone is giving their full efforts to help the Philippines in their state of need.
With that said, people have tried various methods to raise funds and help the relief efforts in the Philippines. Our hearts are warmed by acts as big as million dollar donations to acts as small as children donating their piggy-bank savings to those in need (small, but equally appreciated).
This is why we can’t help but smile at the efforts of Alex and Roi who handle the YouTube channel Wassabi. The boys, both Filipino, felt that they needed to do something to help. Of course, they wanted to do things a little differently.
In this time of tears, worry and stress, the Wassabi boys thought it would be best to create a video of love and support.
They visited a mall and had random strangers dance and give words of hope for the Philippine typhoon victims. In exchange, the boys would give monetary donations depending on the actions/ words of the the strangers.
In addition to strangers, the Wassabi boys also got a few familiar faces to participate including Keanu Reeves, Ryan Higa and AJ Rafeal.
Watch “Smile For The Philippines” below and be prepared to catch yourself smiling along with them.
