Juicing Recipes Humble Request: Help Japan Recover

A big whopping grateful hello is in order to all my fair and gentle readers, especially considering the news of yet another tragedy still unfolding in the world. Seeing these things occur to good people makes me extremely humbled that I can sit here behind my desk and reach out to my peeps without worrying about being carted away in some giant wave.

Just as a heads up, you may or may not receive this post in your email (depending on the type of subscription you opted to receive).

I thought it would be appropriate to get in touch with you all and offer up a link to the American Red Cross page at the "causes" site, where they are currently gathering support to help the wonderful people in Japan who need help right now. The site can be accessed here, below (click the red cross picture), or by visiting http://www.causes.com/campaigns/154523. 

I strongly urge you to consider clicking through and donating what you can to the relief effort. The people of Sendai and other areas affected are only now beginning the long process of cleaning up.

Having personally experienced the terror and awesome devastation of both a 7.8 earthquake in Taipei, and the 2004 Tsunami while vacationing in Phuket, Thailand, I am a perfect candidate to testify - there isn't much in the way of natural disasters that can wreak such havoc and destruction, on such a large scale, so quickly. It truly is shocking and heartbreaking to watch unfold. In Japan there's now an added strain, in that a nuclear reactor is in jeopardy of failing, so the circumstance truly is dire and unpredictable.

The kind folks in Japan are among the nicest and most stoically graceful people on our planet. They work hard and they live, love, and laugh just like we do. Most importantly - as of today they are a severely injured populous and need assistance from the rest of the world. That means you and I.

Please take some time, visit the link, and donate what you can. If you can't afford to donate money, donate a prayer. When you're done, go and hug your family.
