It’s no secret that Japan is still facing devastation following the effects of the earthquakes and tsunamis that took place about three months ago. This disaster ended the lives of over 10,000 people and left another half a million people without homes. The first question on the minds of most after a tragedy of this magnitude is, “Why?” This blog answers our second question – “How can we help?”
Kevin Pidgeon, an International Studies Abroad (ISA) alum who spent his fall 2010 semester in Barcelona, has found a way to help by using his voice. He is a member of the Hyannis Sound, an a cappella group from Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Their studio recorded song “We All Need Saving” is currently available on iTunes, where all proceeds go towards their ongoing earthquake and tsunami relief efforts in Japan. This is a wonderful opportunity to pull together as a community and show your support for a great cause!
