Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund

We are raising funds for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan which hit the Philippines on November 8th. Experts have called typhoon "Haiyan" the strongest ever to make landfall! Reports say that the super typhoon packed winds of up to 235mph and brought waves as high as 20 feet.

It is estimated that over 10,000 people have perished in just one city alone. Some expect that millions will need basic aid during the still-unfolding rescue and recovery process. The Philippines is reeling from this disaster and the recent 7.2 earthquake. They are in desperate need of our help.

The money that is donated will be sent directly to Compassion International: http://www.compassion.com/typhoon-hits-philippines.htm
