On March 11, 2011, the northeastern coast of Japan was struck by a tsunami after a 9.0 magnitude earthquake occurred 80 miles offshore. The tsunami waves caused major destruction in northern Japan. Thousands remain unaccounted for and nearly 300,000 are in temporary shelters.


This project will disburse funds to organizations providing relief and emergency services to victims of the earthquake and tsunami.
