Apple opens iTunes for Yolanda donations

Apple is accepting donations via iTunes to support ongoing relief efforts of the American Red Cross for typhoon Yolanda survivors in the Philippines.

The computer company is promoting the campaign on its homepage where a link brings visitors to a transaction page. The page is paired with iTunes where donations from $5 up to $200 via credit cards can be dropped.

Apple is no stranger to humanitarian aid. The system was recently used last year to for victims of Typhoon Sandy in the United States. It was also used in 2011 for relief efforts for Japan and Haiti both devastated by earthquakes.

Over 4,000 people have been confirmed dead in the aftermath of the storm, which experts claim as the strongest to make landfall in the world’s recorded history.
