The entire CBS LOS ANGELES team has partnered with the American Red Cross to raise money for the disaster relief fund to help in the aftermath of the disaster.
Your donation provides critical support to those in need.

Disasters such as the Philippine typhoon affect the number of people able to donate blood, but hospitals still need blood to meet the needs of accident victims, cancer patients and children with blood disorders.
If people are looking for a missing family member in the Philippines, please remember that many phones lines are down and communication is very challenging right now. If people are still unable to reach loved ones, contact the Red Cross via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.familylinks.icrc.org or call your local chapter to initiate a tracing case (the caller will get voicemail; line is checked several times a day and someone from Red Cross will get back to them).
The American Red Cross urges those who are able to schedule an appointment to donate blood or platelets by visiting Redcrossblood.org or calling (800) RED-CROSS.
