The Tragedy in Japan

Postby kmartell » Sun Mar 13, 2011 6:17 pm

Politics and BS aside for a moment.... I think we need to reflect for a moment and realize how well off we are compared to what's happening in Japan.

What's say we keep them in our thoughts and prayers. This is going to be a huge and ongoing effort to get that country back on it's feet.

If you contribute money be careful about who you contribute through. The Red Cross is my personal choice.

They need all the help they can get. Do what you can.

True enough Ken about the tragedy over there. Those pictures of those houses and cars all bumping into each other and bobbing around makes you wonder how frightening that must be to actually be in one of those houses being washed out to sea. Wind, wet, cold, pain and total fear. How sad. They definately need prayers. Today in church there was a plea given for prayers for those people and every TV ministry on Sunday satellite TV all encouraged nationwide prayer. May God have mercy on those people that are grieving over there. May those who did go with Him to their eternal home be Blessed to be by His side.

The Tomahawk Salvation Army is passionate about the following information it provided for the March 22 newspaper:

Those involved with The Salvation Army in Tomahawk have passed along four ways people here can contribute towards disaster relief efforts in Japan in wake of earthquake and tsunami devastation. Currently, those interested in aiding relief efforts are encouraged to give monetary donations since they offer great flexibility and enable local disaster responders to purchase exactly what is needed as close to the disaster zone as possible.

Options include:

•Text the words “Japan” or “Quake” to 80888 to make a $10 donation.

•By phone: call 1-800-SAL-ARMY (725-2769) and give a donation by credit card.

•On-line at: https://donate.salvationarmyusa.org.

•By mail: Send your check, marked “Japan earthquake relief” to: The Salvation Army World Service Office, International Relief Fund, PO Box 630728, Baltimore, MD 21263-0728.

At this time, The Salvation Army is not accepting donations of goods or household items (gifts-in-kind) from the general public for disaster relief operations in Japan.
The Salvation Army has provided emotional, spiritual and physical care to individuals and families in need throughout Japan since 1895. Currently, 81 active officers and 1,068 employees operate 57 church and community centers, 12 small social service stations, two hospitals and more than 20 institutions serving children, seniors, the addicted and other at-risk populations. Due to the Army’s extensive presence, it is considered unlikely that volunteers from the United States will be needed for initial recovery efforts.

Locally, The Salvation Army has an office at 108 W. Somo Ave., Tomahawk.
