DONATE TO TYPHOON HAIYAN VICTIMS FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
For those of you in other parts of the world, you can donate to Doctors without Borders who are on the ground and trying to help as many people as they can.
HOW TO DONATE TO DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS IN THE PHILIPPINES FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
Tick the “I would like to earmark my donation for the Emergency Response Fund” box and your donation will get to the team on the ground in the Visayas right now.
Before I go, I just want to say to our dear friends living outside the Philippines, I know many of us want to help people in the Philippines, but this is a good read on the best things to give and the WORST things to donate during a calamity:
If you have many old clothes, etc. or even want to buy canned goods and grocery, please remember that doing a fund raising wherever you are and sending the money is better because when you donate in GOODs then costs become triple: 1) for the donations themselves 2) for transport to the Philippines and 3) for the manpower to do quality control, packing, etc. Have a garage sale instead and donate the money! The article above good article to read for thoughtful donations that don’t waste manpower and time of aid workers.
