The Largest Earthquake in ‘Modern Times’

This weekend we were alerted of yet another natural disaster that has stricken – a 8.8 quake that rattled Chile (to say the least). Although they implement strict guidelines for Chile’s architecture to avoid death tolls from these shifting plates, two million people have been affected and 392 have been reported dead. Chile was struck with a force 500 times stronger than the one that hit Haiti — leaving highways jagged like misplaced puzzle pieces and neighborhoods with extensive damage that are currently without electricity.

Haiti is still a new wound, and now we have Chile that needs our help. Every little bit counts.

Please join our group dedicated to Chile here, and help fund assistance to civilians left in rubble.
