AOL's Typhoon Haiyan Relief Efforts Raise A Quarter of a Million Dollars

Dec 3, 2013

Helping others is in our core DNA – so when typhoon Haiyan recently hit the Philippines, AOLers worldwide sprung into action. Coming up with a plan that involved both consumers and employees, we raised a quarter of a million dollars for typhoon Haiyan relief.

In the wake of the devastation, AOLers jumped in quickly from all sides of the company: leveraging our unique Cause of the Day module, we rallied our AOL users to donate; leveraging the AOL UK homepage, we put a call out to all AOL UK users that for every pound they donated to relief efforts, we would match up to 10,000 pounds; and, utilizing our Community Relations site, employees raised money and AOL matched the amount through our Matching Grants program.

AOL is also providing support for the relief effort via content, and we're working with our partner, Network for Good, to provide opportunities for consumers to easily donate.

We've made great progress and are committed to continuing relief efforts. Thank you to all the AOLers who have supported this important cause. Click here to find out how you can help.
