Help the Victims of the Earthquake in Japan and the Tsunami it Triggered

The only thing we could watch all weekend were updates on the terrible tragedy that occurred in Japan on Friday. The images are heartbreaking and difficult to believe. The 8.9-magnitude earthquake hit off the east coast of Japan and the quake -- one of the largest in recorded history -- triggered a 23-foot tsunami that battered Japan's coast. Thousands of people have died and thousands are missing or injured.
