I am always wondering where to put donation info for our extended TAR family needs and charities...so thought one place might be good?

CHRISTCHURCH earthquake donations to Red Cross

Reality Rallies' Michele's Place Donation page

Feel free to add to the list, publicity for good causes is always welcome.

This is a truly a major disaster and it isn't over with in Japan, 2 nuclear plants are having cooling problems with their reactors. As Neobie said, my heart goes out to all the victims of the earthquake and tsunami. I am praying for our RFF family members around the world to be safe and sound.   

If anyone wishes to donate, be careful, fake sites are popping up but here are 3 that are safe:

American Red Cross Go to http://www.redcross.org to donate to Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami or donate $10 by texting REDCROSS to 90999

Salvation Army: Text either the word JAPAN or QUAKE to 80888 to make a $10 donation or call 1-800-SALARMY or go to http://www.disaster.salvationarmyusa.org. Mail checks made out to "Japan Earthquake Relief" to the Salvation Army World Service Office, International Relief Fund, P.O. Box 630728, Baltimore, MD 21263

AmeriCares emergency team is on full alert, mobilizing resources and dispatching an emergency response manager to the region.

I'm sure there are other organizations that are sending aid as well. A number of countries are offering assistance, China, USA, England, Russia to name a few.
Live. Laugh. Love.

CNN has an "Impact your world" blog that also contains information and links to reputable aid organizations both for the current disaster in Japan and for other aid emergencies when they arise;

Don't forget about Toms Shoes.

http://www.toms.com/

Started by Blake Mycoskie who was in TAR 2, they donate a pair of shoes to people in need for every shoe purchased.

You can buy shoes and donate to a good cause at the same time!
I wear them!

It would be helpful if links to twitter accounts, FB accounts, etc. could be included and labels (with info on whose account and charity or event); makes it easier for people to copy and paste into their feeds to tweet or share.

From the Facebook page of Jim Raman (TAR 25-The Dentists)

Please help us complete our Amazing Race journey.

Misti and I applied for The Amazing Race for selfish reasons.  We wanted a once in a lifetime adventure together and a chance to win a million dollars.  What we didn’t realize at the time was that God had much bigger plans for us (yes I will be talking about God and faith and purpose; if you are offended please stop reading now and feel free to unfriend us or unfollow our fan page).

Leg 10 of our Season 25 Amazing Race journey took us to Manila, Philippines. The leg started badly for us with us receiving bad information from a travel agent in Singapore.  We ended up on a later flight than every other team.  We raced to a flower stand to find out we were not able to get our next clue until morning and would be on level ground with the other 3 remaining teams.  When we returned to the flower stand in the morning our next clue took us on a Jeepney ride through downtown Manila.  It was that ride that opened a door in our lives that will forever change the course of not only our lives but our children’s as well.  On that ride through Manila Misti and I witnessed poverty like we had never seen before firsthand.  As I sit here and write this that almost sounds silly.  We all know there is poverty out there.  We have all seen the commercials on TV for Feed the Children and Unicef.  Misti and I have even had ongoing sponsorships of children with Child Fund (formerly Christian Children’s Fund) for about 15 years.  There was just something about that day and seeing it firsthand that opened our eyes and our hearts like never before.  I guess the old proverb “when the student is ready the teacher will appear” rang true for us that day.

As parents, the site of small children bathing themselves on the sidewalk and playing naked in the streets just feet from speeding cars without any supervision was heartbreaking.  The network of plywood and random building materials somehow fastened together in what they call a home is beyond explanation.  There are not words that can begin to explain the feeling of what we saw that day.  We raced to a first place finish that day but the weight of what we had seen continued to weigh on us.  Our post leg interview was exceptionally emotional with the producers asking about what we had seen and how it had affected us.  We were both in tears.  That night in the hotel room Misti and I vowed to return to the Philippines on a mission trip to make whatever impact we could.

Last summer when I began looking into the logistics of coordinating a dental mission trip it quickly became obvious to me that I had a daunting task ahead of myself.  What I realized was that there was much more effort that would go into getting equipment and supplies to our destination than would go into caring for patients.  As I asked people who had done mission trips to other areas of the world I heard nightmares of equipment and supplies being confiscated or delayed by customs.  I heard of trips where only a few patients per day were treated.  Make no mistake, I also heard of the wonderful rewards of giving to those without the resources to help themselves.

After a short time of feeling discouraged and overwhelmed, I realized that what we needed to do was not to go on a mission trip to the Philippines but to build a dental clinic in the Philippines.  A clinic where doctors could take their staffs and give back without having to worry about the supplies or equipment they need.  Now that we know what we have to do, it’s time to figure out how to do it.  That is the purpose of this post.

We need help.  If the thought of a mission trip was overwhelming, the thought of building a free clinic is beyond comprehension.  I cannot even begin to imagine the obstacles that we will encounter.  There are so many details that we haven’t even begun to think about.  I know how much time and effort it takes to build an office minutes from home.  How will we ever be able to build an office halfway around the world, in a foreign land with a foreign government and foreign regulations?  Somehow I know that if we follow the path that God has laid before us that we will be successful.

As Misti and I have been very blessed with the growth and success of our practices we have both had the need to expand and build new offices.  As a result we have most of the equipment we need to build a full functioning dental office.  We have chairs, delivery units, a compressor, a vacuum system, some sterilization equipment and digital x-ray sensors.  There are still some things that we need.  We could definitely use another autoclave and a digital pano.  Most immediately we need a shipping container to store and eventually ship all of our equipment to the Philippines.  We are definitely open to corporate sponsorship as we will obviously have an ongoing need for supplies.  We will also need a cloud based practice management software and eventually computers.  We will also need dentists and their staffs to give their time and skill once we get this up and running.

Misti and I are planning a trip to Manila in late March to begin looking for a site for the clinic.  We have no idea where to begin and this is the place that we probably need the most help.  Please share this post in the hope that someone will read this who can assist us in finding an affordable space.

Thank you for your time in reading through this epically long post.  I believe that we were all put here to serve others and to have the maximum positive impact that we can, not only on our family, friends and neighbors, but also on those halfway around the world.  I also believe that God has bigger plans for us than we can imagine if we only walk through the doors that he opens and follow the path he lays before us.  Thanks in advance to all those who will help us follow that path.

“For even the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and give his life as a ransom for many.”  -Mark 10:45

Special thanks to Dr. Ed Carney for today’s sermon and giving me the goad I needed to quit doing nothing.

 :welcome2:  to RFF Jim!!
 
I love that you and Misti are looking for a way to give back. I think TAR has touched all of our lives far beyond the reach of a "TV Show".
 
I am going to ask any of you RFFer's who have contacts in the Philippines to please help Jim if you can. Someone may be a dentist, know a dentist, know someone in any of the many other areas on Jim's long list of needs to make this happen. If you have friends or family that might be able to help either post it here or PM Jim.
 
Let's see if we can help make this dream come alive!!  :yess:
