Salvation Army Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief

As people in Japan recover from the devastating earthquake and tsunami, The Salvation Army is working tirelessly to assist them every step of the way.

The Salvation Army in Japan immediately dispersed teams following the disaster to the most severely affected areas where they are distributing basic necessities to survivors. These teams will also assess the damage to discern the next steps in their relief efforts.

The Salvation Army has been at work in Japan since 1895, operating more than 80 centers there, including two hospitals and four children's homes. We have nearly 200 officers, 3,000 members and nearly 1,000 employees already at work in the country. We are a part of Japan's communities and dedicated to their recovery.

The U.S. Congress is not a Charity

Today's bad idea:  Our junior senator, Kirsten Gillibrand is trying to breathe new life into a bill to provide charity to First Responders of the 9-11 Terrorist Attack. Now charity is good, and it ought to be part of our reflex and fiber as individuals.  But our constitution does not provide for distribution of of our tax money in this way. 

We have a long history of these kind of arguments.  Take some time to review the classic case involving Davy Crocket in the House of Representatives.
