the tohoku earthquake (and how you can help)
Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in Japan, especially those affected by yesterday’s earthquake and tsunami off the coast of Miyagi prefecture. The possibility of nuclear disaster in Fukushima is only compounding the problem. If you want to help out and make a contribution to relief efforts, you can donate $10 to the Red Cross via text message. Just text “REDCROSS” to 90999 in the U.S and to 30333 in CANADA. Other ways to donate are detailed here and here. Watch out for aftershocks, and stay safe, everyone.
