Positive Humanitarian Response to Philippine Appeals

Patrick Rooney of Indiana University’s Lilly Family School of Philanthropy said he expect individual donations for Philippines relief to reach $1-billion. Americans gave $1.-billion after the 2010 Haitian earthquake and the $1.8-billion following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, in inflation-adjusted dollars.
The Salvation Army said its donations accelerated from $300,000 Monday to $1-million Tuesday, and both Oxfam America and Save the Children raised more than $1-million in the first days after the storm struck the Philippines on November 8. Three-quarters of disaster giving typically comes within three to six months of the event.
