Help Out Those Hit By The Earthquake, Tsunami
The earthquake and Tsunami tidal waves in Japan have caused a great number of fatalities and destruction. The death toll continues to soar, as do more earthquakes in the country. It's beyond our ability to comprehend that many people dying in such a short time but it's not beyond our ability to care.
You can see in the media images of survivors - the agony, the shock, and the confusion of "what now?” We know KLAQ listeners understand it really is a small world and when others feel pain, we feel pain as well.
The survivors are desperate for aid. Many of you have called to ask how you can help families in Japan whose homes and lives were torn apart by the disaster. We can each help by sending a charitable to many organizations that are part of the relief operation. Money will help most because it enables badly needed supplies to be purchased and utilized where needed on a timely basis.
