A South Florida church with ties to Japan is reaching out to the people of that country. Calvary Chapel of Fort Lauderdale has campuses from Boca Raton all the way to the Florida Keys. The church is collecting money for the people who are already working in Japan to help those hardest hit. But even if you can’t give a dollar, Calvary’s Senior Pastor Bob Coy said he feels there’s something very important everyone can do.
While the people who attend Calvary Chapel are in South Florida, their hearts are very much with the people of Japan.
The sun broke through the rain clouds Sunday morning as Josh Duhamel and Fergie sprinted for a cause at the Youth Run for Japan in Santa Monica.Inspired by the devastation faced by the Japanese people in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami, actor Josh once again partnered with the American Red Cross, following up with his fundraiser last year for Haiti. “When I saw some of those images come out of Japan, I’d never seen anything like it,” he said compassionately.It was a close call for Fergie and her band The Black Eyed Peas, who were in Japan to shoot a video a mere week before disaster struck. “Leaving there we had such a positive vibe and then this happened,” she said. “We were all tripping out that we were just there in Japan. It was just a wonderful chance for us to give a love letter back to Japan.” (ETonline.com)
