WAYS TO HELP SURVIVORS OF TYPHOON HAIYAN

There are really no words to describe the devastation that Typhoon Haiyan has created in the Philippines.  It is easy to feel helpless when such disasters happen, but there are many ways that we can help.  Here is a round up of organizations from USA Today that are providing medical care, food, water, shelter, and more to the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan. Each dollar raised can help them help more people in need.  Please donate if you are able to and / or help to spread the word.   I have also provided each organization’s Charity Navigator profile and score for your reference and the below is listed starting with the highest rated organizations.
