Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation: Japan Relief
On March 11th, a 9.0 earthquake – the world’s most powerful recorded in history – struck Japan. This impact triggered a destructive tsunami.
Since then, the coast has been hit by more than 150 aftershocks.
The effects of these disasters have displaced Japanese families from their loved ones. Now many are missing, fires have spread, buildings destroyed, towns wiped out and over millions left without water and electricity.
But even in the wake of disaster, there’s always hope. Your contribution can provide relief required to help those in need.
The Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation has launched a Japan Relief Campaign which offers you two ways to help:
10 things to learn from Japan (from SkyNews)
With their country in the midst of a colossal disaster – The Japanese citizens can teach plenty of lessons to the world.
1. THE CALM
Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.
2. THE DIGNITY
Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture. Their patience is admirable and praiseworthy.
3. THE ABILITY
The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.
4. THE GRACE (Selflessness)
People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.
5. THE ORDER
No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.
6. THE SACRIFICE
Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?
7. THE TENDERNESS
Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.
8. THE TRAINING
The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.
9. THE MEDIA
They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters. Only calm reportage. Most of all – NO POLITICIANS TRYING TO GET CHEAP MILEAGE.
10. THE CONSCIENCE
When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly.
