We at iGo have a deep love for the people of Japan - having sent teams there for many years. Our hearts are saddened by the recent disaster that struck this country we have served in many times. We wanted to somehow support those devastated by the earthquake and tsunami. So, we are currently selling our Japan t-shirts for $20. All proceeds from the sales of the Tokyo shirt will go toward helping those affected by the earthquake and tsunami last month in Japan.
Baptist Global Response is a Southern Baptist Relief and development organization whose purpose is to connect Southern Baptists with relief and development needs worldwide. Seeking to mobilize and involve the influence, prayer, human and financial resources of Southern Baptists for worldwide relief and development. BGR was created to meet human needs around the world due to problems such as tsunamis, earthquakes, and hurricanes. BGR is a partner of the International Mission Board in helping to implement a more effective and efficient international relief and development effort.
The Baptist Global Response is working right now in areas devastated by the March 11th earthquake that are outside the tsunami impact zone. Until that area opens up to humanitarian organizations they are concentrating on the critical needs of earthquake survivors in other areas. This initial relief work will focus on life essential items: basic food items, water, blankets, hygiene supplies and kitchen utensils. There are weekly updates on the BGR’s website on the work that is going on in Japan and how they are moving forward to help the people of Japan.
