Typhoon Haiyan swept across the central Philippines on Friday leaving a trail of massive destruction in its wake. With sustained winds reported at over 145 miles per hour, and significantly stronger gusts, Haiyan was the second category 5 typhoon to strike the Philippines this year.
The typhoon affected 4.3 million people across 36 provinces. They are estimating about 10,000 deaths. They need our help.
I lived in the Philippines for the first 12 years on my life and I want to let everyone know that it is a wonderful place with wonderful people. This typhoon has devastated so many lives and I wish I could do more to help. I implore everyone who is reading this to make a donation. I know it will help.
$1 can buy a kilogram of rice and feed 6 people. Imagine what $10 can do. Please donate. The effects will be felt.
