  • The Situation in Japan - and what you can do to help * everyone please read *

    As everyone knows, Japan was devastated by a massive earthquake, tsunami and nuclear issues as well. Everyone who has seen the videos knows what a difficult time the Japanese people are going through right now. This event happened without warning, and with no time to react. This could happen to all of us at any time as well, and we could very well be those victims.

    In times like these, any help is greatly appreciated, whether it's helping to search for lost loved ones in rubble, a doctor to perform needed medical care, or simply a warm bowl of soup to eat. Many people lost everything, their homes, their possessions, and worst of all, their families. They literally have nothing but the clothes on their backs.

    Being a former long-term resident of Japan, and still having a lot of family and friends there, this event has hit me very hard. The people of Japan need our help, and there is something you can do that will directly affect and make a difference for the victims.

    The Red Cross is a very active organization in Japan, and they are one of the groups heading the operation to help the people of Japan. They are providing all sorts of services such as providing food, shelter and medical care. You can see them on the news programs on the front lines doing their best to ease the burden of the victims.

    If you donate to the Red Cross, your donation will go directly to this operation.
    Please, even if you can only spare a little, it will make a difference.

    You can donate here:

    Or go to one of the following banks to donate to the Red Cross:

    BMO Financial Group
    Canadian Western Bank
    HSBC Bank Canada
    Laurentian Bank of Canada
    National Bank Financial Group
    TD Canada Trust

    Also, Rogers and Fido users can donate directly from their phone, you can text ASIA to 30333 to donate $5 to earthquake relief , with 100 per cent of the donations going to the Canadian Red Cross Japan Earthquake/Asia-Pacific Tsunami fund.

    Thanks for anything you can do to help.
