The recent earthquake and tsunami have resulted in substantial death, destruction, and suffering to our allies and good friends in Japan. It is heartbreaking to see the scenes on television and in our printed media showing and describing horrific conditions that are just unimaginable.
USA Field Hockey has been in touch with our hockey friends in Japan and they report that they are safe. But, with the suffering of their neighbors and what appears to be a pending nuclear accident there is much to be done in the relief effort, and it is beyond the capability of Japan to meet all the needs.
We feel the need to help, and hope you do as well. USA Field Hockey, working alongside firstgiving.com and the American Red Cross, has established a link for you to contribute directly to the American Red Cross Japan Disaster Relief fund. The need for food, medical supplies, and clean water is real.
We are hopeful you will donate what you can. Your donations are tax-deductible and will service a legitimate humanitarian need.
Let's join together as a strong field hockey community and show Japan that they are not alone.
Yours in Hockey,
USA Field Hockey
