Right now, there are many articles circulating the web about the anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake and its subsequent tsunami that took over 15,000 lives. I preferred Mainichi Shinbun‘s (Every Day Newspaper) short article so far (http://mainichi.jp/english/english/newsselect/news/20140311p2g00m0dm034000c.html).
But I’m not here to recap this sad marker in Japan’s history.
There’s still a lot of work to be done and a lot of help to be given. Thousands have been displaced by this event from 3 years ago. We should remember to be human and help those that are in need.
To donate to the Tohoku fund:
For UK donors, please use The Japan Society.

For everyone, Ashinaga (supports children affected by Tohoquake) and various funds you can Google.
Speaking of help, if you’re looking to donate to other more recent causes, please donate to the victims of Typhoon Yolanda (Philippines).
