Due to the recent damaging earthquake and tsunami in Japan, we encourage every one of our members and affiliates to reach out to colleagues you know or perhaps work with, who have been affected by this tragedy to offer your support in whatever way you can. The American Ceramic Society, on your behalf, will be making a donation to help in the recovery effort. If you are personally interested in making a donation, here are links to three organizations that you may want to consider:
- Japan Relief Fund Salvation Army
- International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies on behalf of the Japanese Red Cross (select Japan: Earthquake and Tsunami)
- Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake Tsunami Emergency
Let’s make sure that we do all we can to support our friends and colleagues, as well as their families and communities.
