Watch it and pass it along…more than 1,000,000 and counting.
The best thing to do, as a blogger and for compassion towards others that suffer right now is to guide others that want to help. May Our Lady Of Akita have mercy and protect our people of Japan.
From Yahoo! News:
Japan was hit by one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded on March 11. The magnitude-9.0 quake spawned a deadly tsunami that slammed into the small island nation, leaving a huge swath of devastation in its wake. Thousands of people are dead and many more are still missing or injured; almost half a million people are homeless.
Japan has often donated when other countries have experienced disasters, such as when Hurricane Katrina impacted the United States. Below are organizations that are working on relief and recovery in the region.
AMERICAN RED CROSS: The American Red Cross is currently supporting and advising the Japanese Red Cross, which continues to assist the government in its response. You can help people affected by disasters, like floods, fires, tornadoes and hurricanes, as well as countless other crises at home and around the world by making a donation to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Donate here.
GLOBALGIVING: Established a fund to disburse donations to organizations providing relief and emergency services to victims of the earthquake and tsunami. We are working with International Medical Corps, Save the Children, and other organizations on the ground to provide support. Our partners on the ground are working hard to provide immediate relief. Donate here.
SAVE THE CHILDREN: Save the Children, which has worked in Japan since 1986, has an immediate goal of $5 million to launch longer-term recovery for children affected by Japan’s March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Save the Children has opened the first child-friendly space in Japan, protective environments where children can gather to play and share their experiences under the supervision of trained, caring adults. Donate here.
AMERICARES: AmeriCares and its relief workers in Japan are working to deliver medicines and supplies to hospitals, shelters and health responders to treat and care for survivors. The AmeriCares team began mobilizing within hours of the first reports of the dual disasters, dispatching an emergency response manager to Tokyo to direct the efforts of our relief workers in Sendai, the largest city closest to the impact zone. Our team is in direct contact with local officials, evacuation shelters and hospitals treating the injured in Miyagi, Fukushima and Iwate to determine health needs. Donate here.
INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL CORPS: A team of doctors flew to Sendai, where they will be delivering supplies, assessing needs, and identifying communities that have not yet been reached. We continue to coordinate with local health authorities and partners on critical gaps, providing technical expertise and assisting with logistics. Donate here.
SHELTERBOX: ShelterBox responds instantly to natural and man-made disasters by delivering boxes of aid to those who are most in need. The box includes a tent for a family of 10, cooker, blankets, water purification, tool kit and other items survivors need to rebuild their lives in the days, weeks and months following a disaster. Donate here.

Why is it that when you think you’re done buying Christmas presents for your families is when you -gasp- forgot ONE person? or two? The conudrum of what to get to that person who has everything; that is also a dilemma.
As I am almost done with my Christmas shopping, I never get off my north-which is God, Jesus and Our Blessed Mother. I am confused as to why so many religions don’t even bother to mention Mary; without Her, we would not have Her Son. I take some time to thank them, and to give Them my worries and my stress. It does feel good, especially at these hectic times where stores look miserable and turned upside down.
I did take the time to visit a Catholic store and find something for my brother; a St. Jude statue, a medal and a prayer card. St. Jude has a strong bond with some members of my family.
I do have to admit that even though these times are hectic, we have come across some great deals, and have wised up about spending. So far, the best website that is still working -I don’t know for how long- is bfads.net.
I certainly hope you are done with your Christmas shopping, that cookies are baked (or will be) for Santa Claus. Good deeds go a long way too, so try to do good little things for anybody. I bet if you tell your kids to do one good deed daily, they will get more presents from Santa!
