Really efficient - you can donate in no time at all.
It's a bad business out there, please do.

Done.

I'm surprised how long it's taken to get a public appeal going

In reply to Trangia:

Its also amazing how quick these charities move in Times of crisis.

Bristol red cross depot was shipping out tons of tents, Blankets, etc. I rang them first thing this morning to Volunteer to help Pack and dispatch. Was Kindly thanked, but They had been shipping lorryloads all weekend, and were all sent by today.

Indeed, and there was me complaining about burnt toast and a bus 5 minutes late... and in Tacloban not only whole houses and contents gone, but family members too - the mind boggles.

In the absence, donations to Oxfam, Redcross etc are all going to help.

Wasnt me. It was Darron.

But every additional post bumps it up again.

Was about to donate then got an email at work saying they will be doing a match donations.
So waiting for them to get their donate option up and running.

In reply to Darron:

I've pinged an email round at work with that link on it and so has Mistress Teffers. Might help get a few more donations.

Dropped down a bit.

Worth another bump for the evening folk.

In the last week over 6500 users have visited these forums.
If all of these users were to donate just 5 then that would amount to a group donation in excess of 32,500.
It would be a wonderful thing if the UK climbing community were to decide collectively to provide some financial support to help ease this desperate situation.
Lets all donate (at least) a fiver.

Who's in?

NUMBER OF CONFIRMED UKC DONATIONS: 1

i know a few people in there, its a messy one that will go long term. some parallels to aceh and haiti where there was an already compromised population and security issues.
with access being a major issue contributions need to go a lot further simply to get stuff there and maintain the life-line.

heavy stuff.

Nice idea, but I've already made a donation to the Red Cross

DEC website is excellent and easy to use. If 1 million people gave 25 each (less than half the cost of a tank of petrol - or a night out on the p155) then the value of donations would be 30 million by the time gift aid is added by HMRC.
