The news out of Japan yesterday was so sobering, and continues to be so. My prayers are with all those affected by this devastation, and those working to help.
The first way you can help is praying if you are one who believes in prayer. Secondly, there are many organizations you can donate to that are helping with this cause.
We really like to give to World Vision to help out in disasters like these. They are already established in so many countries, and are one of the first on the ground to provide aid in situations like these. Here is the direct link to World Vision's donation section for the quake and tsunami in Japan: http://donate.worldvision.org/OA_HTML/xxwv2ibeCCtpItmDspRte.jsp?funnel=&item=2200736&go=item§ion=10324&
The American Red Cross is also, of course, actively seeking donations and is already providing help to this area. To donate through the American Red Cross, you can text 90999 to give a $10 donation or you can visit this direct link to give another amount online: http://american.redcross.org/site/PageServer?pagename=ntld_main&s_src=RSG000000000&s_subsrc=RCO_FrontPagePanel
Please consider donating to a reputable organization providing help, and please pray for all those affected and those helping.
