UBAM: Typhoon Haiyan Fundraiser, Book Friday and Cyber Monday Deals

I am hosting a fundraiser to raise money for Typhoon Haiyan Disaster Relief, donating 100% of my commission from book sales, now through Dec. 14.  The money will be donated to World Vision.

Why World Vision?  We have two children that we sponsor through World Vision, so the organization is very dear to my heart.

From the World Vision website: World Vision is setting up about 40 Child-Friendly Spaces in order to provide a safe place for children recovering from Typhoon Haiyan to resume learning, play, and process the disaster’s effects.


  • World Vision has opened the first of an estimated 40 Child-Friendly Spaces for children recovering from Typhoon Haiyan.
  • Child-Friendly Spaces provide a safe place for children to learn, play, and process the disaster’s effects.
  • Child-Friendly Spaces have proven effective in previous disasters, as noted in a study from Columbia University and World Vision.
  • Typhoon Haiyan is believed to be the strongest tropical storm ever recorded.
  • An estimated 5,000 people are feared dead, and some 800,000 are displaced.
  • World Vision has distributed emergency food, water, and hygiene kits to an estimated 24,000 people.
  • The greatest needs include clean water, food, and shelter.
  • World Vision is raising funds to provide emergency assistance to 400,000 people.
