This is an online auction to raise money for the Red Cross’s Typhoon Haiyan Appeal.
Typhoon Haiyan slammed into the Philippines on Friday (8 November), causing catastrophic damage. It is the strongest storm ever to make landfall, hitting an area where thousands of people are already homeless after an earthquake in mid-October.
The 300-mile wide typhoon – locally known as Yolanda – has left a trail of destruction with thousands feared dead. The full extent of the damage will become clearer in the next few days as rescue teams reach the more remote areas.
Philippine Red Cross volunteers have been on the ground since before the storm hit, helping with evacuation plans and warning communities. Now, they are getting aid to the people who are most in need and preparing to help thousands more.
The auction is now live and you can bid on the items via the comments on the individual posts.
Once the auction has ended (Wednesday 20th November), the winning bidder will donate the funds directly to the Red Cross and send the confirmation of payment to the Authors for Philippines appeal. When they have received the confirmation, they'’ll ask the relevant author to contact the winning bidder.
