The devastation in Japan is beyond heartbreaking. Every day the news seems to worsen with the body counts on the rise and the threat of nuclear meltdowns on dangerously high alerts. This blog is normally a place of musing, but Japan is on my mind and I believe it should be on everyone’s mind. What is happening in Japan is being described as the nation’s “worst crisis since World War II.” But it’s not enough to pay attention, it requires collective action on all of us because this is about our humanity. I hear a lot of people talking loosely about sending thoughts and prayers, which are great but I hope those thoughts and prayers are also followed with action. The best immediate action is to donate to organizations that are working in Japan. I know money is tight for everyone in our current economic state and trust me, I’m no baller but the strength is in our collective effort. Donate whatever you can, every bit helps. Please donate to any of the following 100% legit organizations.
For bloggers everywhere, I urge you to spread the word.
