Supermodel Naomi Campbell is selling exclusive signed prints of herself in a bid to raise funds for the victims of the deadly typhoon which battered the Philippines on Friday (08Nov13). An estimated 10,000 people were left dead by Typhoon Haiyan as it tore through the island nation, leaving thousands more seeking shelter as homes and schools were swept away. The British beauty is offering her support by selling a limited-edition print for $30 (£20) each, taken by half-Filipino photographer John-Paul Pietrus, to raise cash for Red Cross charity's disaster fund. Pietrus tells Vogue magazine, "I was on the Red Cross website and thought that there must be something more that I can do than a personal donation, not only to raise money but to raise awareness. "I immediately called Naomi to see what can be done and I suggested selling one of the images we've taken for charity. Naomi has always been passionate about helping those in crisis and I am grateful for her getting behind this initiative and coming up with a way of helping those effected by the typhoon."
