You can help AmeriCorps Alums respond to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. In the first week since the earthquake, we are working with HandsOn Tokyo in Japan and we are communicating with our international partners to determine support needed on the local level. An account has been set-up with MissionFish/Ebay and Paypal to collect donations to assist HandsOn Tokyo with relief efforts. Over the next few days we’ll continue to update you on current activities and ways you can help. Here is what you can do right now:
Volunteer: HandsOn Tokyo is continuing to monitor the situation and will be identifying volunteer appropriate activities. For now, you can register your interest to volunteer for potential upcoming volunteer opportunities related to the relief and recovery of earthquake and tsunami impacted communities by registering with HandsOn Tokyo here.*
*If you are local to Tokyo volunteer opportunities may become available more quickly.
*If you live outside of Japan, volunteer opportunities may take longer due to need to find proper accommodations and support for international volunteers.
