Author Raises Money For Japanese Earthquake/Tsunami Victims

Author Maureen Johnson has set up a fundraiser to help earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan.

GalleyCat has more: “Author Maureen Johnson has launched an online fundraiser for Shelterbox, collecting money for earthquake and tsunami relief in Japan. Johnson led a similar fundraiser for earthquake victims in New Zealand, raising more than $15,000 last week.”

With the money raised, Shelterbox will provide boxes with materials needed for people to restart their lives. Johnson’s website explains more: “The boxes always include a top-quality tent, and they usually include stoves, blankets, water purification systems, and tools. This is true, life-saving stuff, hand-delivered by volunteers trained in survival techniques.”
