How can we help Japan….

We’ve all seen the news, and we all are praying for the country of Japan, very little we can do from that far away and the hardest part is, it’s not over yet. Those people lost everything, I’m deeply saddened and wish I could do more, I get sad thinking about the children that lost parents, parents that lost their children or anyone that lost a loved one in this horrible natural  disaster.I was asked by so many how can we help, is there a way? I did some research this evening and here are some destinations for you to go and help, donate or  get info. Let’s all unite and be all we can be and help those in need out….God Bless…
