I am not really in the mood to blog about food at the moment. Especially now that I have learned that so many Japanese people are still without food, water, and proper shelter.
I wasn’t even going to blog about anything today but saw the press release from Project Open Hand (see post prior to this one) earlier and thought that would be something people can do locally to help people here. People that are disabled, with HIV, seniors, and others with circumstances that cannot cook for themselves and rely on organizations like Project Open Hand to help feed them. So while I cannot do anything about Japan except maybe give some monetary donation and sending them good thoughts, I can certainly help spread the word on those in need around me.
For those of you that are moved by the Japanese Tsunami Disaster and want to give some monetary donation, please beware that scammers are out in full force. Please read this MarketWatch article, so that you don’t fall victim. Reputable organizations are out there to truly help those in need, please check them out to make sure they are legitimate before you hand over your money.
I felt the same way and used a post I wrote earlier. The dignity and grace of the Japanese people under such circumstances and loss resonates to my soul.
Yes, they are very calm (as can be) in spite of the circumstances. A lot of trust placed in their govn’t and I hope that they get the help they need quickly…
I absolutely love this post. Service to others makes this land a better one. I’ve already donated and I’m glad you put up the MarketWatch article link. There are too many scammers out there.
Thanks for the kind words and glad you like the post. I think it’s an important message and just helping to spread it.
