Last night I was up thinking really hard about what I could do further to help spread the word about the devastation and tragedy that happened on March 11, 2011 in Japan. Not only where they hit by the FIFTH largest earthquakes recorded in history they then were hit by a tsunami CNN reported that the events have moved Japan's coastline 8 feet and has also shifted the Earths axis. Many people have been displaced and many lives have been lost in such a big event in history. I think that everybody has seen the footage and heard on the radio the death toll and the missing people that have still not been found. Even though this happened literally on the other side of the world for people here in Canada and The United States it still does hit close to home. I know from when I was in college there were many exchange students from Japan that I got close with and they are going through such a hard time being here while their families are back home. My heart goes out to all of the people that have been affected by the quakeS (yes plural) and the tsumani. I just wanted to be able to do my part in helping to get people to either donate time or money for this great cause. Nurberxo on youtube has started a tag to spread word and get people to help. Down below are some charities she has found that you are able to donate to. I have also added one that I am very interested in as well.
