Samaritan's Purse sends 90 tons of aid to Japan
While the rest of the world pretends Japan is too rich to need aid, a Christian charity backed by some of my favorite performers sends 90 tons of supplies. The Red Cross is already there, naturally, they are always first to arrive at this kind of disaster, but I have seen almost no news about nations and charities rushing to aid the victims of this most recent earthquake and tsunami even though this is clearly one of the greatest natural disasters in recorded history.
I will, however, acknowledge that following as this does so closely on the heels of Christchurch and Haiti, resources for many nations and charities may very well be stretched to the breaking point. This year has gotten off to a terrible start.
