Atheist Foundation Beyond Belief - desperate need

Post #: 11
In the wake of Typhoon Haiyan, Foundation Beyond Belief's Humanist Crisis Response program is collecting donations to support relief efforts in the Philippines. 100 percent of all donations will be forwarded to our beneficiaries throughout the course of the drive. Please go to http://foundationbeyo...­ to contribute.

A super typhoon that the US Navy's Joint Typhoon Warning Center has called the most powerful storm to make landfall anywhere on Earth in recorded history devastated the Philippines on November 8 (local). Over 10 million people were in the path of the storm, which is 300 miles across with a wind speeds up to 235mph and tidal surges of 12-15 feet. On the Dvorak Scale, which measures tropical cyclone intensity on a scale of 1.0-8.0, Haiyan has rated a full 8.0. The force was 3.5 times greater than Hurricane Katrina.

UPDATE 11 NOV 0555 ET: Over 10,000 are now feared dead; hundreds of thousands are stranded and in desperate need of food and water in towns and villages strewn with bodies. Multiple local and international agencies are scrambling to respond to the humanitarian need, which includes residents who lost their homes in an earthquake several weeks ago and were forced to ride out the storm in makeshift shelters.
Foundation Beyond Belief is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation created to focus, encourage and demonstrate humanist generosity and compassion.
