A petition calling for the EuroMillions £12 million jackpot to be donated to the victims of the Typhoon Haiyan has attracted over 127,000 signatures.
As many as 11 million people have been affected by the disaster, with aid agencies describing survivor's urgent need for food, shelter and medical supplies.
The number of signatories to an online petition calling for the EuroMillions £12m jackpot to be donated to aid for people in the Philippines as rocketed to more than 100,000, almost doubling this evening.
The petition was set up by Rachel Riddall, 43, in response to what she described as 'shocking suffering' in the region.
Camelot has said that despite an online petition calling for the Euromillions prize fund to be donated to the Philippines, the money does not belong to the company and so is not theirs to give.
The number of signatures supporting an online petition which has called for the EuroMillions £12 million prize to be donated to the Philippines has shot up to more than 58,000.
Rachel Riddall, 43, who set up the site said: "On Tuesday, £12m (15 million euro), said: "On Tuesday, £12m (15 million euro) was up for grabs from the EuroMillions prize draw but there were no winners.
"I'd just finished watching the 10 o'clock news and saw the shocking, harrowing scenes of the suffering in the Philippines, where millions of people have had their lives torn apart by a typhoon."
More than 43,000 people have signed an online petition to donate the £12 million EuroMillions prize to the Disaster Relief Fund to help people in the Philippines.
The petition, set up by Rachel Riddall, says that Tuesday's prize, which had no winner, should be donated to help people in the wake of the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan rather than being rolled over to tomorrow's draw.
Set up on the site change.org by Mrs Riddall on Tuesday night, it has already attracted more than 43,000 signatures.
