Unless you live under a rock you have seen or heard the devastation that hit Japan yesterday. It’s all over the media, you can’t miss it. Japan had one of the largest earthquakes on record. Hitting 8.9 in magnitude is unbelievable and the death toll and destruction is mounting as fast as they can get it on the news. Today is the day to give. The people of Japan need us today. Their lives have been changed forever. Let’s not wait, let’s all do something. Let’s show our support, compassion and love to the people of Japan right now.
