What is there to say? It just beyond horrific and getting worse. If you want to help by sending financial support http://www.savethechildren.org.uk/, http://www.redcross.org.uk/ and http://www.shelterbox.org/ are all running campaigns and getting help up and running on the ground where it’s needed most.
In addition I had an email about this auction this morning as well. If you’re into books and want to raise money for a good cause this might be for you:

So far there are more than 100 lots including exclusive editions of new books, signed works, feedback and critiques on manuscripts and proposals as well as publicity help, social media expertise and freelance journalism mentoring. There are three lots from me: A critique of a non fiction book proposal, a place on a Kick start your freelance writing career day-long workshop, and four one-hour telephone mentoring sessions, with exercises and feedback in between and two signed books with each.
