You've seen the heart-wrenching images of Japan's cataclysmic earthquake and tsunami. Entire villages have been swept away. Hundreds of thousands of people are displaced.
When I was a in high-school, I was given the unique opportunity to visit Japan as a foreign exchange student with Youth for Understanding. I lived with a Japanese host family, went to a Japanese school, and experienced life in Japan for a brief few months. Because of my experience there, I feel very driven to help the people in Japan.
Please consider donating to Mercy Corps, who is working with Peace Winds, to help families affected by the disaster. Your donation will be used to meet immediate and longer-term needs of earthquake survivors.
