Please Help

I'm sure most of you have heard about the tsunami in Japan that took the lives of thousands of people. You may be thousands of miles away and not feel the impact, but please help. 

I am currently impacted by this catastrophe because one of my dear friends was in Miyagi, Sendai when this occurred. He is fortunate enough to have survive, but have lost all his belongs. However, he is so incredibly strong and is currently volunteering in one of the nearby schools, helping many of the elderlies and children adapt to their situation. I am so proud of him.

You can  help too. There are many non for profit organizations that are receiving donations and sending it as emergency relief funds to Japan. There are also bloggers who are selling items and donating 100% of the proceeds, such as Eki, Yasumi, and Asiyakei. I, myself, have pledged a donation to Red Cross. These people are without home, some have even lost their family, and are trying to survive on whatever resources are left in the area, so they really need our support and for us to be compassionate during this time. If you don't have the resources or finances, there are other ways to help. You can spread the word or volunteer to fund raise at a local charity or at a relief center.  

Remember, every little bit helps.
