Japan Hit by huge Quake and Tsunami Donate: www.humanitariancoalition.ca and www.oxfam.ca
Mar 15, 2011
Police said 200 to 300 bodies were found in the northeastern coastal city of Sendai, the city in Miyagi prefecture, or state, closest to the epicenter. Another 151 were confirmed killed, with 547 missing. Police also said 798 people were injured. The death toll was likely to continue climbing given the scale of the disaster.
The magnitude 8.9 offshore quake unleashed a 7-meter tsunami and was followed by more than 50 aftershocks for hours, many of them of more than magnitude 6.0. One magnitude 6.6 earthquake struck central Japan hours later, causing Tokyo buildings to sway.
Scientists say the massive earthquake ranks as the fifth largest jolt in the world since 1900, shaking after the initial shock lasted for about five minutes. It was nearly 8,000 times stronger than one that devastated Christchurch, New Zealand, last month. Source: The Globe and Mail Newspaper!

Jul 25.08 | Ted Hart launches Green Nonprofits organization www.greennonprofits.org
"For years I've heard from nonprofits around the world of their interest to support and protect the environment. Because they did not perceive themselves to be experts, it was unclear what they could do to make a difference and still run a successful nonprofit/NGO. Today, GreenNonprofits, Inc. provides that answer; provides that path for every nonprofit around the world to make significant changes that when combined together will create a powerful force for the greening of this industry." - Ted Hart, CEO
GreenNonprofits was founded to be an accessible source of information about greening your nonprofit workplace, and to be a desktop tool for any nonprofit to become green[er].
As people and corporations around the world become more "green" they in turn expect the nonprofits they support to also take proactive steps to protect the environment. GreenNonprofits will lead the way in helping Nonprofits/NGOs around the world meet this challenge. "Ted Hart, CEO" read more
