D.C. area fundraisers for the Typhoon Haiyan relief effort

The Philippines is on the road to recovery after Typhoon Haiyan hit the country's islands last week, but there's a tremendous need for humanitarian aid. We've rounded up fundraisers around the D.C. area supporting relief efforts. (You can also donate directly to the American Red Cross.) If we're missing something, let us know and we'll add it.

Daikaya: The Chinatown restaurant will donate all proceeds from sales of its sisig dish to the World Food Programs for families in the Philippines. Sisig is a Philippine-inspired pork disk. At brunch, the dish is a braised pork hash with citrus-yuzu and egg; for lunch, try the Sisig Donburi, sizzling pork and egg served over white rice.

MalmaisonAll proceeds from tonight's $20 open bar event will go to the International Rescue Committee's typhoon relief efforts. You can donate directly to the committee or get your ticket here.
