Japanase Earthquake and Tsunami Appeal - Help the Visctims

Posted Date : 2011-03-31


Hello everyone,

It is with a sad heart that we write this entry. The earthquake and tsunami that rocked Japan on Friday and that caused - and continues to cause - death and destruction on an immense scale has caused a gloom to descend over TREKKING TEAM. Events such as this always put one’s life into perspective - indeed it makes daily hurdles at work seem trivial.

On behalf of the whole TREKKING TEAM, we want to express our sincere condolences to the people of Japan and indeed any TREKKING TEAM members who may have been affected by this tragedy. We’re sure we speak for the whole TREKKING TEAM community when we say that our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Japan during this trying time.

The American Red Cross has once again launched a campaign to raise money for relief efforts in the Pacific region. Last year, the Red Cross was able to raise over $20 million for Haiti relief through simple text donations.
