Last week, I took some time to make a list of organizations helping Japan in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake and tsunami that has left over 28,000 people dead or missing. This week I’ve found some more ways to help. Some of them are even free to you – so please read on!
Help Japan with SwagBucks
Swagbucks, a popular website that allows you to earn points (swagbucks) as you perform online searches and other tasks, had already raised over $14,000 for Japan by Thursday morning. Members can choose to donate their swagbucks (otherwise redeemed for giftcards, cash, or prizes) until Friday the 8th of April Monday, May 2nd.
If you are already a member of SB, donate now! If you aren’t please sign up now. Use the code HelpJapan during registration and earn 50 extra swagbucks. Also if you use the link above (or click on the photo) and register, you’ll be helping me earn extra, too. I will be donating all of the sb’s that I earn during the duration of this drive.
Help Your Children Understand
Keep Japan in your family’s thoughts and prayers by taking some time to get your kids interested in the people and culture. We pulled out all of my suvenirs from my time there and had fun talking about the differences and similarities between life here and there. You may also want to talk about the weather and natural disasters – if this won’t scare your littles too much. Here are some teaching resources:
