I’ve seen the pictures and videos of the recent earthquakes in Japan, and I am nearly speechless. I’ve only been able to shake my head, to try to reconcile the scale of the disaster. I reeled a bit from the New Zealand quake, as I actually know people there. The Haitian quake was more distant, as I don’t know anything about the place, and earthquakes and tsunamis and all other disasters before have elicited in me concern, but also frustration.
The question always arises: how can I help?
I don’t have money to give, can’t afford to go there and help in person.
But I have a voice, and a little bit of savvy, and I trust some organizations to do the right thing.
If you can, donate to an organization you trust. I know that the majority of my readers/listeners come from Canada, the US and the UK, so here are links to the appropriate Red Cross websites.
