Our hearts go out to the millions affected by the Japanese earthquake and the resulting tsunami. A times like this, well meaning individuals tend to feel helpless as they see the enormity of a disaster like an magnitude 8.9 earthquake. We know first hand that one individual can make an impact by joining with others to offer aid to those who need it. We encourage you to seek out support organizations who can make a difference and send them money right away.
Minimally, reach out and donate to the Red Cross who’s personnel are already on the ground in Japan coordinating relief. As one of our friends said, “Don’t just send condolences and positive thoughts. Send money. Now.”
Please give to the Red Cross
