Stand with Japan - The Recovery Depends on it!
Ordinary citizens have also responded. According to The Japan Times, in a poor district in Brazil, students gathered what coins they had in a can and delivered the money to the Japanese Embassy.

This (money) is not much, but we are hoping that it will be useful in some way for the disaster victims," the children said at the embassy, according to the Foreign Ministry.
It will take a lot of penny jars to get the job done. The BBC reported that it will cost as much as 25 trillion yen ($309 billion) to rebuild the country.
It is a daunting task, but one that grows in importance even as the world's attention has begun to drift to unrest in Libya and elsewhere in Africa.
Japan remains one of the top 3 economies in the world, and is a vital player in the global economy. Any worldwide economic recovery will need a strong and thriving Japan to take root.

With the world on its side, the Land of the Rising Sun will also see the sun rise again.
