They have also published an emergency relief hotline, along with bank account information to receive donations to assist their cause:

We will add others to this as more becomes known.
UPDATE: Thanks to all who have provided additional methods for contributing. CLB has no real knowledge regarding any of these charities nor any real expertise at determining which of these charities make the most sense or which is “the best.” In other words, you all are on your own for that.
