Last Friday, Typhoon Haiyan decimated part of the Phillipines. The storm is one of the most powerful in recorded history. There are 1774 confirmed dead but estimates are over 10,000. Countless more have been left homeless and displaced. The devastation is so horrendous, people are walking down the streets covering their nose and mouth because of the smell of rotting corpses.
Efforts are underway to assist people but there is still much that can be done to help the survivors. The staff at Tumblr posted this:
