do your part: donate to flood victims in southeast asia



14 inches of rain in six hours — that’s the amount of water that Typhoon Ketsana dumped onto Manila this past Saturday, leading to massive floods that have killed at least 200 and have displaced tens of thousands of others in the northern part of the Philippines.

You can do your part by contributing to the American Red Cross’ efforts to help out. (Vietnam is also in the path of the typhoon.)
