Japanese Earthquake-Tsunami Relief

After the 9.0 earthquake that was followed by a tsunami that wiped out many large coastal communities in Japan and has left a toll of more than 10,000 people dead, it is clearly the largest disaster that the country has faced since WWII. Our partners and translator friends in Japan, as well as the staff at PLG, have been effected in one way or another. The northwest suburbs of Chicago have one of the largest Japanese-American communities in the United States.

We urge our business partners and friends to consider giving a small donation to their local chapter of the American Red Cross. We send our prayers and wishes to Japan. "Fall seven times and stand up eight." - Japanese Proverb
