On 3/15 Save the Children estimated that as many as 100,000 children may have been displaced in Japan. The British charity said it was concerned that some of the children affected by the disaster may have also been separated from their families because the earthquake and tsunami struck in mid-afternoon when many children were at school or nursery. Stephen McDonald, who is leading Save the Children’s team in Japan, said the most pressing worries for children living in evacuation centres were lack of water and psychological problems associated with trauma and stress.
Social Media Moms is a group of moms in social media who support each others and drive the conversation in the blogging community to maintain and improve integrity by leading by example, and I am proud to be part of it. We teamed up to use this Monday to raise awareness and money for Save the Children organization to help the children in Japan. Together we can make a difference. Let’s make a difference today.
