Helping Japan's youngest victims

As we all know Japan is in a state of emergency... with an escalating death toll. Here are the facts:

Japan Disaster Facts

  • An estimated 100,000 children have been displaced from their homes
  • Japan facing three disasters: earthquake, tsunami and nuclear radiation
  • Japan is on high nuclear alert for two nuclear reactors in Fukushima
  • Many tsunami-affected areas are still cut off from relief
  • More than 465 roads, 43 bridges and seven railways washed away
  • More than 380,000 people evacuated across the country

If you would like to help, I encourage you to go here to donate now to the Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund to support Save the Children's relief efforts and responses to children's ongoing and urgent needs. And please add a prayer - these children are going to need it!
