Call For Help - For Victims of Typhoon Haiyan


As many of you know, I am a Filipino. Over the past few days, many of you have heard, read, and/or seen, the horrific aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan in my home country. My mother's family is from one of the most adversely affected areas. My family and hers are all safe, but great damage to property has been suffered - they are the lucky ones.

There is so much to be done to alleviate the suffering of those who weren't so lucky. Therefore, I am turning to you, my writing and reading family, for help. If any of you would like to assist in this great time of need, here are links to several charitable organizations you can donate to that I know will bring help to where the need is greatest:

Philippine Red Cross
AmeriCares
UNICEF
Catholic Relief Services
World Food Program USA

If you are unable to donate financially, your prayers will also be greatly appreciated.
