This March 11 will mark the one-year anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami and nuclear disasters.   Japan continues to struggle with the after effects.  Areas have been rendered uninhabitable by radiation, and the nation is currently facing a 40% increase in the price of eggs caused by loss of port facilities used to import chicken feed (Eggs are a critical staple for Japan).  For an overview of the past twelve months, NHK, the Japanese National Broadcasting Service, has collect a series of their stories documenting the disaster and the response.  They range from the story of the desperate evacuation of a nursing home where 50 seniors subsequently died to the ongoing efforts to save and preserve priceless cultural artifacts and national treasures from museums and other locations impacted by the disasters.

 
Please follow this link to the Japan Red Cross to make a donation to help those still struggling.  The money you contribute is distributed by Prefecture governments directly to those who have lost their homes and livelihoods in the form of cash grants.  You can also text "GIVE 7954" to 80088 to give $10 to relief assistance.  Globalgiving has a website with other options for donating.
 
For everyone in Philadelphia, the Japan American Society of Greater Philadelphia will be hosting an anniversary event on March 11 at 7pm at the Bellvue.  They will screen the film "Radiation - Fighting the Invisible Enemy" and the Japanese Student Association of Temple University will be having a bake sale to raise funds.  Click here for JASGP's donation page.
 
Thank you for doing what you can.
