  • The Salvation Army is responding the earthquake and tsunami that's hit Japan, using it's international reach to start relief efforts.
    According to a press release, Commissioner Makoto Yoshida, leader of the organization's Japan territory, says they will be sending a team to Sendai, the hardest hit area, to provide basic necessities, and asses the damage.
    Public transportation in Tokyo has stopped, and Yoshida said the Salvation Army headquarters were opened to those who couldn't go home.
    Those who would like to support relief efforts in Japan can call 1-800-SAL-ARMY, or text the word "Quake" or "Japan" to 80888 to make a $10 donation to disaster relief through The Salvation Army World Services Office.
    The Salvation Army serves more than 100 countries, and provides emergency assistance as well as long-term relief.
