I was going to post a bit of my WIP North Pole: Confidential, but that can wait because there is a need in the world that you might be able to help.
The damage in the Philippines from Super Typhoon Haiyan is unbelievable and catastrophic. The death toll at this point is just guessing and will undoubtedly be horrific. Power may not be restored for months. People are without homes, without food, without water and basic clothing.
In honor of a friend who has family there, I am posting some links for anyone who wishes to donate to the relief efforts. I know things are tough right now, and it seems like everyone wants a donation for something these days, but please consider how you would feel if it was your mother, your brother, your niece, or grandson with no food and no place to go. Even the smallest bit counts. If you can spare $1.00, that can help someone. And if you cannot spare even that, please give your thoughts and prayers, which are more powerful than you may know.
