2011 東北大震災 Tohoku Daishinsai

It has been a terrifying and heart breaking week. My prayers are with those affected by the crisis in Japan, especially the Tohoku area. This is a public blog, so I have been dealing with the situation privately, connecting directly with family and friends to share our concerns. Thankfully, my parents who live in coastal Sendai are uninjured and are now in a safe environment. But my heart breaks every day for the victims in the area still living without water, food, heat and now facing a nuclear threat.

Let us each think of how we can help given our individual situations, whether it’s a monetary donation or your time, no matter how small or big.

Purely as FYI for Hawaii residents who were unsure of how to donate, First Hawaiian Bank (followed by other major banks) has set up a fund that they jump-started with a $100,000 donation of their own. Donations are accepted at any FHB branch, and the money will go directly to the Japan Red Cross (source: KGMB News).

I’m filled with gratitude for my cellphone carrier AT&T, who along with Verizon and Sprint are offering free phone calls to Japan during this time of crisis. Their efforts to help in the best way they can given their unique position is inspiring and greatly appreciated.

Everyone please stay safe, and continue to pray for those affected by this disaster.
