Watching Japan day by day

Mar 16, 2011

We’ve been watching our emails closely in the early morning and the late night, monitoring each and every update from our colleagues in Japan.

They report that the situation is fluid and changes hour by hour, with 55 earthquakes reported yesterday, several that were not even in the original epicenter.

The Amway Japan Tokyo facilities have been closed except for essential operations, but will reopen in just a few hours on Thursday morning.

The good news is that Amway Affiliates are mobilizing around the world to help our friends in Japan, following the initial commitment of 100 million yen from Amway headquarters.

In the United States, Amway employees and distributors can donate to the American Red Cross on our website. In many other countries, similar collection sites are set up online and at local centers. Some affiliates are even making additional donations.

There is little we can do but watch, pray, and give. I hope you will join us.
