DEC have opened a Phillippines Typhoon Appeal which means they think a) the problem is really big and serious  b) they can do something about it c) people will respond to an appeal (paraphrasing their Appeal Criteria).

I think they may be right about c) anyway - I had an email this morning urging me to donate money through the Big Give as there was matching funding to effectively double my donation.  By the time I looked this evening, the page said the matching funding had been used up within 6 hours, raising £150,000.

So I donated direct to DEC, approximately half my monthly budget for spending-on-me, which is about what I can spare on short notice.
