The response we’ve had to the Philippines typhoon has been phenomenal so far, but we’ve also had a number of you get in touch asking if you can do anything else after donating.

Here are a few other ways you can help.

1. E-mail your friends and family

We put together a short fact sheet about the Philippines typhoon appeal. If you’ve got a spare 30 seconds, copy and paste the text from this document – and email it to 5 of your friends and family.

2. Spread the word on Facebook

Oxfam is putting up photos and info graphics about the emergency on Facebook – here’s one banner and here’s another. Log into Facebook before you click the links, and then hit SHARE.

3. If you’re on Twitter…

Follow @oxfamcanada on Twitter for all the latest on our emergency response work, including updates from Oxfam staff on the ground.

4. Put up a poster

We’ve made a few posters and graphics for the appeal. Put these up in your workplace kitchen or your window at home. You can also print out or pass along the links to our backgrounders:

Thank you, once again, for everything that you do.
