Japan was hit by one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded on Friday. The magnitude-8.9 quake spawned a deadly tsunami that slammed into the nation’s east coast, leaving a huge swath of devastation in its wake. Thousands of people are dead and many more are still missing or injured. Japan has often donated when other countries have experienced disasters, such as when Hurricane Katrina impacted the United States. (Lili Ladaga – yahoo)
If your like me then you are looking for some way to help out anyway you can. If you can spare anything (even just 25 cents) you can donate here: paypal and after I get $10 or by the end of this week (which ever comes last) I will send a donation to “show your heart” with the names of anyone who donates. Also I will be adding updates at the end of this post every time i get a donating to let you know what we are up to and recognizing those that have decided to donate ^_^
Here are a few other places that are trustworthy and will put you donations to immediate use:
AMERICAN RED CROSS: Emergency Operation Centers are opened in the affected areas and staffed by the chapters. This disaster is on a scale larger than the Japanese Red Cross can typically manage. Donations to the American Red Cross can be allocated for the International Disaster Relief Fund, which then deploys to the region to help. Donate here.
CONVOY OF HOPE: Disaster Response team established connection with in-country partners who have been impacted by the damage and are identifying the needs and areas where Convoy of Hope may be of the greatest assistance. Donate here.
INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL CORPS: Putting together relief teams, as well as supplies, and are in contact with partners in Japan and other affected countries to assess needs and coordinate our activities. Donate here.
