The Philippines is still reeling from the effects of Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana), which had a record downpour over the weekend resulting in massive flooding in many, many areas. Thousands of families are now homeless, and as of writing over 240 are dead, several more are missing. Even worse, at least two stores have been spotted approaching the country in the next few days.

Please take a moment to visit these sites and offer any help you can—cash, in kind, or through voluntary efforts.
