Super Typhoon Haiyan has left wide-spread death and destruction in the Philippines that is truly unimaginable.

The death toll stands at 10,000 and it is rising, with bodies being found in the aftermath of the worst storm in recorded history. This storm was of epic proportions- even of Biblical proportions.

This horrific loss of life touches many, especially those who have family in the region. As such, my heartfelt prayers go out to these families who have lost so much.

The Philippines is going to need a lot of help in terms of medical, food and financial assistance in the midst of all this devastation.

As Americans I’m asking all who can to contribute to this worthy effort in helping the poor people in the Philippines. There are a number or charitable organizations that can help like: The American Red Cross, UNICEF, Save the Children and the Catholic Relief Services, as well as local religious and community groups to name a few. So please, give, for these people need our help. Remember the good of the many outweighs the good of one.
