HELP JAPAN!!!
MARCH 13, 2011

You probably already heard the news.

On 3/11, 8.9 Magnitude Earthquake hit Northeast of Japan, also triggered 30-foot
ferocious Tsunami to destroy coastal city of Sendai, the city in Miyagi prefecture
(state) closest to the quake's epicenter. After the earthquake, the whole nation
was followed with over 100 aftershocks, and we just got another one as I write
this. The images are apoclayptic, so surreal that it almost resembled scenes
from a Hollywood disaster movies.

and tsunami at the bottom link↓↓↓

JAPAN EARTHQUAKE: BEFORE & AFTER

Hundreds of miles of Japan's northeast coastline, entire towns are swamped, leaving
thousands dead and thousands (still counting as I write) left with no homes, food,
and water and heat. And there are not enough resources to quickly reach - or even
contact - the tens of thousands who remain missing.

Prime Minister Naoto Kan called the disaster the country's worst crisis since World
War II. While Tokyo was given a good shake, amazingly it survived largely undamaged.
However, one feeling we've all sharing at the moment is a terrible sense of uselessness.
I wish I can taken it upon myself to get in a car and head north but it's not the most
sensible option at this moment. :(

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!!!!!!

Even if its just $10, it can really be saving someone's life right now!!! One man's meal
could mean another man's life. I recommend the following sites:

American Red Cross
*If you are in US, simply text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 from your phone
(you'll be prompted to confirm with a second text reading YES).

International Medical Corps

WORLD VISION

Doctors Without Borders

Save the Children

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!

CONTACT INFO FOR 2011 JAPAN EARTHQUAKE
MARCH 12, 2011

It's been a day since the earthquake, and we are still experiencing
aftershocks, which just happened a minute ago (10:25pm JST).
Actually, that was the biggest aftershock today. If we have after-
shocks like this in Tokyo, I can't imagine how frightening it is,
in other areas of Japan.

So much tragedy in Japan right now. It has affected many, especially
in areas where the earthquake and tsunami hit hardest.

There are many foreigners who are seeking information and the
whereabouts of their family/friends in Japan. CNN has covered
this:

I'm sure most people have information already , but in case it can be of
any help, I gathered a few links.

Please pass this along to anybody who may need them.

Many prayers for those who have suffered from this tragedy.
