I'm sure you all have heard about the devastating news about the earthquake in Japan. On 9.21.1999, Taiwan suffered a grade 7.3 earthquake that devastated the country. I was in elementary school then, and I can distinctly remember the fear, the shaking buildings, and the electricity outage that lasted several days after the quake.... Luckily my families didn't live close to the epicenter, so we weren't really affected. But the nation did suffer a great deal of loss... and I cannot begin to imagine an earthquake with the magnitude of 8.9.... plus tsunami. Seeing the videos and images of Japan, hearing the news and climbing death toll and thousands of missing people and the injured... it's heartbreaking.
I am writing this post because I want to encourage you guys to get involved. I noticed a lot of people seem to be unaware that they can actually help Japan. A lot of people don't do anything beyond saying "that is horrible," and that really isn't enough. Either they really don't care about helping, or they don't know that they can. The easiest way to help will be to make donations. And this can be easily done over the Internet, and there are many websites and organizations you can make your donations to. Amount as small as a dollar can help, because everything adds up. Just imagine if every single person in the US made a $1 donation, how powerful that could be. I'm planning to make my donations to Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund and Red Cross as soon as I deposited my paycheck tomorrow.
