    Typhoon Haiyan Fundraiser


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Carol Lim says the Filipino community in Tampa Bay, Florida, organized a fundraiser to help raise money for Typhoon Haiyan survivors in the Philippines. The organizers of the event say that they nearly doubled their original goal of $20,000. She says while she was covering the story, she estimates that more than 100 people were at the event. 'From my perspective, I was truly impressed by the generosity of the Tampa Bay Filipino community and the public's response in helping the Typhoon Haiyan survivors. They've been at it since news broke of the typhoon's devastation,' she said.
