While we go about our daily lives in relative peace here at home, the news reminds us of the tragedy going on in Japan. While I personally don’t know anyone there, I do have an employee, Erin, who has the love of her life on the U. S. S. Ronald Reagan which was 60 miles from the nuclear plant two days ago and now is 100 miles out to sea. I pray for our soldiers safe return.
In the paper this morning, they talked about the fundraising efforts of the Salvation Army that had raised $2M as of Tuesday including $1.9M online, $93K via text and $59K my phone. To contribute $10, text the words “JAPAN” or “QUAKE” TO 80888. Other ways of donating are: calling 800-SAL-ARMY, going to https://donate salvationarmyusa.org or sending mail to the Salvation Army World Service Office, International Relief Fund, P. O. Box 630728, Baltimore, MD 21263-0728. In the memo field write “Japan earthquake relief.”
Heaven forbid that a big one hits here in San Diego someday. But, if it does, I sure hope that someone is there to help us.
Make it a “giving” day,
