On March 11th, an earthquake with the magnitude of 8.9 hit Japan and caused giant tsunami waves of over 9 meters to come crashing down on the island country. Thousands are reported missing and acres of land were under meters of water. Whole towns were washed away.
Please help Japan, they need our help right now. Here's how to help:
American Red Cross-
Emergency Operation Centers are opened in the affected areas and staffed by the chapters. This disaster is on a scale larger than the Japanese Red Cross can typically manage. Donations to the American Red Cross can be allocated for the International Disaster Relief Fund, which then deploys to the region to help.
Convoy of Hope-
Disaster Response team established connection with in-country partners who have been impacted by the damage and are identifying the needs and areas where Convoy of Hope may be of the greatest assistance.
The Salvation Army has been in Japan since 1895 and is currently providing emergency assistance to those in need.
These are only some ways to help donate. Go the this page for more ways to support the relief effort: Yahoo! Newsroom: How to Help Japan
