David's work has helped raise an astonishing amount of money 

The World Food Programme thanked David in a Twitter post which read: "Since @DavidMuir’s detailed look at the world’s first climate-induced famine in #Madagascar for @ABCNews last week, $3.2 million and counting has been raised. Please continue to support our efforts to help families like those in Madagascar."

The post was written on 13 November, meaning much more money has likely been raised since.
