japan relief2 Dont Just Pray for Japan...HELP   Join Karina Bradley in the Relief Effort
I would like to take some time to acknowledge the recent devastation that has struck Japan. As people, we all have a responsibility for the human condition, and the people of Japan need to know that the world is behind them. The March 11th 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami and the April 7th 7.4 magnitude earthquake has left Japan crippled, but even more recently the escalation of Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster to that of Chernobyl shows just how much Japan still needs help. The March 11th earthquake and tsunami have resulted in nearly 13,000 deaths and left nearly 15,000 people missing. The natural disasters also damaged or destroyed more than 217,000 buildings and 2,100 roads. The Government of Japan and the National Police Agency reported two deaths and 132 people injured as a result of the April 7th aftershock, which was the largest to occur since the March 11th earthquake. I have seen the pictures and the news reports of the horrible tragedy that Japan is in. Thousands of lives of have been lost, millions are homeless, and even worse those who have survived, face the danger of radiation exposure. I urge anyone and everyone to donate what they can to ease their plight. It is up to us to come to Japan’s aid. As a recording artist, I feel that it is my duty to donate to those that are less fortunate than I am. I have been extremely blessed to have accomplished so much and feel that it is necessary to give. This is why I am urging all my fans around the world to step up and help. Don’t just speak about it, be about it. If you want to give and don’t know where to start, I have compiled a list of organizations that are working with the Japanese government in the aid of its people.
