The events of Japan have affected me in a way that is hard to explain. While we don't have any immediate family in Japan - I am sure my grandpa would have been devestated to see the destruction of his home country, again.
It's hard to know where to start giving and I believe getting the word out is a good place to start.

Trees improve our air quality, save energy, reduce pollutants, provide homes for wildlife, and add brilliant colors to landscapes. Planting 100 million trees can reduce the amount of carbon by an estimated 18 million tons per year and, at the same time, save consumers $4 billion each year on utility bills. 100 million trees—that’s the goal. So get out your shovel!
You can be both the cause and the victim of noise. Noise-induced hearing loss is cumulative over one’s lifespan. To avoid noise-induced hearing loss, pay attention to the noises around you, turn down the volume whenever possible, and don’t honk your horn unnecessarily. Often, by the time you realize you are losing your hearing, it’s too late…WHAT?
23 - Get Tested
We need to take responsibility for transmitting infections and diseases to others. Save lives, money, heartache, and emotional burden by getting tested. If you could prevent yourself from passing along a life-threatening infection, disease, or inconvenience to someone, wouldn’t you?”
Every day firefighters put their lives on the line to save people and property. Many of these firefighters are volunteers, so let’s “pay” them by showing our appreciation, thanking them for the valuable service they provide, and letting them know that we are very aware of the significant positive impact they have on our communities. Firefighters, whether paid or not, make an incredible difference in our lives—so let’s make a difference in theirs.

Why is it that people who wouldn’t even think about throwing trash into the street don’t hesitate to flick a cigarette butt? Most people who litter their cigarettes either don’t fully understand the consequences of their actions, or they have rationalized their behavior. Imagine fewer fires as well as less litter, pollution, and harm to animals simply because people stopped throwing their cigarette butts out their car window or tossing them on the ground. The sheer volume of cigarette butt litter isn’t just ugly … it’s hazardous.
I didn't now that owning a dog would be this expensive (addressing the must haves...)
I didn't know that a dog would be demanding of MY time

Animals are unconcerned about age, looks, or physical ability; they accept you just as you are. If you’re thinking about getting a pet, seriously consider adopting. Not only will you be saving your new pet’s life, but you’ll also be rewarded with years of companionship, entertainment, unconditional love, and increased opportunities to meet others. Single? Go to a dog park … but only if you have a dog.
