Our hearts go out to the thousands of lives affected by the typhoon's destructive hit in the Philippines. You can help emergency aid efforts in a variety of ways:
UNICEF is helping families find shelter, food, water and vaccines in addition to airlifting over $1 million in additional supplies. Donate online here.
The World Food Programme is providing 1000 packs of high-energy biscuits (nutritious food is especially important for victims in the next few days) for every $100 donated. Make an online donation here.
For more information on how you can help emergency aid efforts, please check out the this complete and helpful list compiled by TIME.
Navigating the world of charities can be tricky (of course we want to make sure our donation is helping those who need it), and we really like GuideStar's tips and charity ratings.
