As some of you may have heard, there has been a major earthquake and subsequent tsunami in both Western and American Samoa. The tsunami has leveled whole villages and displaced many people, even killing dozens. Our thoughts and prayers go to the people of those islands, some of which are our families and friends, as we scramble to find ways to help them.
In the next few days we will try to brief you all on our efforts to help out in this cause to provide relief for the Samoan islands. Please stay tuned for more info.
