Help Japan!

Unless you've been living in a cave for the last week, you know that Japan was recently hit hard with a huge earthquake, followed by a tsunami that devastated their nation. To make things worse, there is a nuclear reactor that is leaking radiation due to the damage it too. It's an unimaginable horror which has left thousands without homes, and looking for their family. All you have to do is look at these before and after pictures to see how bad the damage is.

There are ways you can help the search and clean-up efforts in Japan, and because Japan has contributed so much to the world, here at Carly on Comics, we'd like to give you a few ideas on how to help.

Worldvision is a charity that helps mostly children affected by the tragedy. This organization will help give out food and medical supplies to those who need it, and if they exceed  donations for this tragedy, they will use the overflow money to help in the next disaster.

Mercycorps will help provide shelter to those who are homeless due to the disaster.

Connect To Charity is wonderful because it allows you to look at and compare different charity's and figure out which one you'd most like to donate to.

The Red Cross  is a charity that we're all familiar with, that helps provide aid and medical care for those who need it.

There are so many options, and you can donate as much or as little as you can. Every dollar helps, and these people certainly need your help.
