    Apple has always been a company with high corporate social responsibility standards. Now, Apple is inviting iTunes customers to help those affected by the Typhoon Haiyan, which ripped through the Philippines last Friday and is estimated to have killed more than 2,500 people.

    You can donate between $5 and $200 to the American Red Cross to assist its relief work in response to Typhoon Haiyam. Apple has used the iTunes donation system several times before, in response to Superstorm Sandy, the tsunami in Japan and the earthquakes in Haiti. Now, the Cupertino company wants to support the Philippine Red Cross volunteers that are looking after the injured ones and still still searching for survivors. Apple is also advertising the effort on its homepage.

    The US and UK are also helping out Philipine in this disaster, sending military naval vessels to render aid to the roughly 660,000 people displaced by the cyclone. The typhoon is thought to have been the worst ever to hit the land of Philippine. Once a donation is made, according to Apple, you "will receive an email receipt from the iTunes Store which will serve as your only acknowledgment of your donation.“

    This is very very nice to see this. It's quite overwhelming to see all of the international Relief from so many countries to the Philippine islands during this devastating and trying time for them.

    send your cash donation to the Philippines from Canada through the Red Cross or World Vision and the Canadian Government will match it dollar for dollar.
