Disaster in Japan

Those of use who have been to Japan have experienced firsthand the hospitality and art of the Japanese people. Museums, monasteries and gardens in cities such as Tokyo, Kyoto, Kamakura and Nara come to mind.

Now this nation needs help.

If you wish to assist, there are many different ways, and I have worked through some of the agencies listed below:

• American Red Cross: Donate at 800-733-2767, http://www.redcross.org/, or by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

• Salvation Army: Call 800-725-2769 or go http://www.disaster.salvationarmyusa.org/.

• Save the Children: Text JAPAN to 20222 to donate $10. Call 800-728-3843 during business hours or go to www .savethe children .org /japan quake.

CNN lists the following Charities helping in Japan at http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/impact.your.world/:

  • AmeriCares
  • International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC)
  • Save The Children
  •  The Salvation Army
  • Doctors Without Borders
  • Convoy of Hope
  • ShelterBox
  • International Medical Corps

Thank you.
