Our brothers and sisters in the Philippines need help.
The super typhoon Haiyan – also called Yolanda by Filipinos – blew through 36 provinces early Friday with gusts of up to 235 miles per hour.
More than 4 million people or 905,353 familes have been effected, and it is feared that more than 10,000 people have lost their lives in one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall.
Whole villages have been destroyed, and survivors have little access to shelter, food, and medical care.
The Philippine Red Cross accepts Paypal, and has a list of other other ways to make donations.
If you work for a large multinational corporation, set-up a fund to assist one of the humanitarian organizations.
