Dear Kimberley,
The chaos and destruction caused by Typhoon Haiyan this weekend is absolutely devastating. Please read the message below from our friends at UNICEF to learn how you can help those trying to survive the aftermath of this disaster.
Thanks, as always, for all you do.

Please donate to UNICEF’s EMERGENCY response in support of the victims of Typhoon Haiyan and your donation has the potential to TRIPLE in impact.

Dear Kimberley,

On Friday one of the largest typhoons ever recorded ripped through the Philippines where hundreds of thousands have been evacuated and are bracing for the worst.

Maximum sustained winds measured 235 km/h and wind gusts as high as 275 km/h. Initial images show trees uprooted like toothpicks. Buildings demolished. Homes washed away by a torrential storm surge.

A child stands little chance against this kind of storm.

There are reports of 10,000 deaths in a single coastal town. Up to 4 million children are believed to be living in the areas that were hit.

UNICEF prepositioned supplies in advance of the storm and is rushing staff, relief and more resources to the region. “…We know how vital it is to reach children quickly,” says UNICEF’s Philippines representative Tomoo Hozumi.

You can help this effort by donating to UNICEF’s EMERGENCY response. Every donation will triple in impact and go directly to relief efforts there.

Every moment matters for these children.

DONATE NOW AND TRIPLE YOUR IMPACT*

The last few months have been heartbreaking for children in Syria and now the Philippines. This is urgent and children’s lives are on the line, so I’m asking for your support.

Thank you for your compassion, your selflessness and your generosity in the face of such a heartbreaking crisis.
