Spread the word
Over the past two weeks, our friends at London’s Clove Club (Daniel Willis, Johnny Smith, chef Isaac McHale) have put together a campaign to get restaurants in their city — and around the globe — to help the Haiyan Typhoon relief efforts.
The way it works is simple: an establishment gives customers the option of adding £1 to their bill for a contribution to the cause, which, if accepted, the restaurant will match. Funds go to the Disasters Emergency Committee, a group that brings the 14 main UK aid agencies together at times of crisis.
So far, the effort has spread throughout London’s best restaurants and is starting to catch on outside the city. The group is organizing several attractive dinner auctions to raise funds, as well.

For restaurateurs outside of London who’d like help out or implement similar efforts in their cities, please reach out to Daniel and the gang via Twitter.
