How you can give to Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts

The scale of the devastation in the Philippines as a result of Typhoon Haiyan is immense.  The death toll is over 1,700 and rising.  Many predict it to reach over 10,000.Those who have survived have gone days without food or fresh water.  Doctors are desperate for medicine to treat the wounded.Air Force Capt. Antonio Tamayo told the Associated Press:  "It's overwhelming.  We need more medicine. We cannot give anti-tetanus vaccine shots because we have none."The longer survivors go without help, the greater chance of disease.According to the AP:  "a reporter drove through the town for around 7 kilometers (4 miles) on Wednesday, seeing more than 40 bodies. He saw no evidence of any organized delivery of food, water or medical supplies, though piles of aid have begun to arrive at the airport. Some people were lining up to get water from a hose, presumably from the city supply."How can you help?There are many organization which have set up websites for funds for disaster relief.   The American Red Cross will take your donations online.  The link for its website is here.  UNICEF reports an estimated 4 million children were affected by the storm.  You can also give via 'UNICEF Responds' by clicking this link.
