something we can do to help

as of today,
death tolls 2,000 confirmed by authority
reported missing person 3,000
more than 450,000 evacuees.
I don't know how accurate ,but Im sure these numbers will keep rising.

It's heart breaking,, imagine yourself in that situation..

a couple of crazy snowstorms messed up NYC few month ago,,it was horrible.
but this disaster makes those snow storms feels like just a flurry snow.
It even feels so wrong to make a comparison.

I can't help but thinking what i can do.
unfortunately,, not so much we can do here.
It will take years to recover from this tragedy.. those who lost their lives won't come back. but those who survived can build them back up.
They need hope right now.
I would like to give them one. small,but better than nothing.

I will post these relief funds info again.
