The abject sadness of this story is enough to break anyone’s heart. As you read about people looting – not electronic stores – but a rice warehouse you realize that these people are suffering terribly.
For the Canadians reading this blog the Government of Canada will match your donation dollar for dollar. That means even if you can only afford $5.00 you will actually be donating $10.00 – don’t think about it. Do it!
