What Can You Do

The disaster in Japan and the pacific is clearly on all of our minds. For those of you who read my blog regularly you know that it is a “close to home” issue for me. My beautiful sister June and her family live in Tokyo. They are safe. But the news coming from Japan continues to be terrible. The Tsunami is now being overshadowed by the unprecedented breakdown of four nuclear reactors. Although the feeling of helplessness can easily overcome me there is something I can do.

America is sending urgently needed funds and help to Japan. You can contribute to by going to the official American Red Cross website. Please remember when any tragedy occurs there are unscrupulous people who will take advantage of your good  intentions. Please be sure to make your contributions to a verified “official site” . If you can not help monetarily your prayers are worth more than gold.
