by FFE Entertainment News staff
After his extensive reports on the horrific aftermath brought by typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines, Anderson Cooper continues to find ways to help the victims of the tragedy by keeping the news alive.
Through his twitter account, the Cable News Network (CNN) anchor recently shared an article discussing the best ways to donate to the typhoon victims in order to prevent further deaths due to delayed relief aids.
In the article of The New York Times, writer Nicholas Kristof advised readers who want to help to give money instead of goods. Kristof also suggested donating the cash to local organizations because they are in a better position to help the affected communities to recover and reconstruct.

Cooper’s reports while in Tacloban showed the rest of the world the different struggles faced by the typhoon victims and the government’s seeming lack of organized relief operations. He also expressed admiration of the Filipinos’ strength during the crisis.
“Amidst the hunger and thirst, the chaos and confusion, we’ve seen the best in the Filipino people… Mabuhay Philippines. Maraming salamat for all you shown us. Maraming salamat for showing us all how to live” Cooper said in a video diary aired in CNN.
