The origin of the term "bayanihan" can be traced from a common tradition in Philippine towns where community members volunteer to help a family move to a new place. The process involves literally carrying the house to its new location. This is done by putting bamboo poles forming a strong frame to lift the stilts from the ground and carrying the whole house with the men positioned at the ends of each pole.

Tropical storm Ondoy’s fury has reignited the Filipino ‘bayanihan’ spirit. And it comes with a twist. As Ondoy poured out his wrath Saturday, Filipinos from all walks of life renewed the bayanihan spirit - that indomitable Filipino quality that helps them collectively conquer adversity.

People from all persuasions and class, total strangers, neighbors who were previously nodding acquaintances, businessmen from big corporations to the lowly sari-sari store are generously lending a helping hand to the less fortunate victims of Ondoy.
