Helping Japan's Earthquake and Tsunami Victims

When the 8.9 magnitude earthquake happened in Japan last Friday my immediate thought was my aunt (my mother's sister) who works in Tokyo. I immediately contacted my aunt's daughter if she has heard from her mother and sent a message to my aunt via Facebook.

The agony of waiting wasn't long because by 7:00 in the evening another cousin of mine informed me that my aunt called up her daughter to tell us her family that she's okay and I got a message reply through Facebook from my aunt the following morning.

But a sad news came for me last Monday because up to now the sister of a good friend of mine who lives in Miyagi, Japan hasn't communicated yet with the family. Miyagi prefecture is one of the areas hardest hit by the tsunami.

I was going to report her sister as one of the missing people in google's people finder but when I typed her name it was already reported as missing. I pray that she's safe with her family in Japan and we could hear from her soon.

If you want to help and make a donation to the victims in Japan you can now go over to paypal.com where you will be able to make a $25 contribution to charitable organizations helping out in the relief operations in Japan. If $25 donation is a little big for you, you can also give a $5 help to Japan.

Let us pray for the people in Japan.
