Given the recent earthquake and Tsunami in Japan, it seems the best thing to share today is information about how to help. Below are a list of links which I freely took from other websites. I’ll be back Tuesday with another post.
Red Cross: Donors can contribute to the relief efforts by calling 800-733-27677 or visitinghttp://www.redcross.org. Each text message is a $10 donation to the Red Cross, which will be added to the donors’ next cellphone bill.
