Help Japan Now

I was awake when the Japan Quake hit. 

It was 8.9 on the Richter Scale.

Here is a news video:

And thanks to USA Today, here are some charities to donate too:

"Convoy of Hope's 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. The best way to help is to donate online at or text TSUNAMI to 50555 to donate $10 to Convoy of Hope's Disaster Response efforts.

" has already launched the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund, raising funds which they plan to distribute to various efforts in the region.

"International Medical Corps is responding to the health needs of the disaster's victims.

"Mercy Corps is now accepting donations for survivors of Japan's earthquake through their longstanding partner, Peace Winds Japan. Donations will be used to meet immediate and longer-term needs of the survivors.

"The Red Cross is asking for $10 donations to their relief efforts in Japan online or by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to donate from your phone.

"The Salvation Army in Tokyo is sending an assessment team to the city of Sendai tonight to assess damage and will begin providing basic necessities (food, water, etc.) beginning as soon as possible tonight or tomorrow.


"Those interested can text "JAPAN" or "QUAKE" to 80888 to make a $10 donation to the Army's relief efforts."

Do a good deed this weekend and help Japan.

Thank you from the Valley.
