Typhoon Haiyan

Those of you who have been following the news know that Typhoon Haiyan's impact on the Philippines has been shattering, with a count of the dead and missing beyond belief.

I know the holidays are coming up and times are hard, but if you can help, here are some places to try. Those of you who attend places of worship may already be helping through collections there.

Oxfam International: those of us in the U.S. can click on the Oxfam America button to donate through them

The Red Cross, Disaster Relief donations. Keep in mind that Haiyan is now headed for Vietnam. Donations to international organizations will go where they are needed most, which is a good thing.

World Food Programme

If you can't donate, please boost the signal. The folks in East Asia need all the help they can get.

Please consider donating through NAFCON. Grassroots orgs in the US are working in solidarity with orgs in the Philippines to bring relief to those who need it most.

About a year ago, I was in the in the Philippines and I ended up helping with some typhoon relief projects and it wasn’t Red Cross or the other large organizations (or the Philippine government) that made it out to the most devastated areas, but the smaller, more grassroots organizations that brought relief and rebuilding to the areas.

NAFCON = National Alliance For Filipino Concerns

Thank you! I was going to copy yours but then I found another list via Reuters and used that to get some more charities as well. Letting people know and keeping the word out is important. I appreciate that you're always on top of these things.
