Thinking of Japan

As most of the world has heard by now, parts of Japan have been devastated by a major earthquake that in turn created a series of tsunamis. The disaster occurred in the middle of the afternoon there, and has resulted in what is currently being reported as "hundreds" of deaths and "tens of thousands" of people evacuated and fleeing for shelter.

In the coming days, weeks, and months, the people and animals of Japan will need our help. Sure, we can all text "redcross" to 90999 for our ten dollars of support, and that adds up - but if you are able to do more or respond in a more effective way, please do. This article may help us all to understand what can be done, when, and how.

Our hearts and thoughts go out to all who have been affected by yet another natural disaster...
