The Happy Hearts Fund

When the Indonesian tsunami hit in 2004, killing thousands of people, supermodel Petra Nemcova was one of the people who was almost swept away. By some miraculous twist of fate, she was able to grab onto a palm tree branch, which saved her life. Her fiance, Simon Atlee, was not so lucky.
Not only did she lose the love of her life, but she saw families torn apart by this natural disaster, and she realized that some of the children in that area had lost everything: their families, their schools, and even their homes in many cases.
She created a foundation in honor of these children, the Happy Hearts Fund. Her fund helps children who are victims of natural disasters everywhere. With the devastating events of Japan's tsunami, organizations like Nemcova's are more important than ever.
Nemcova was just on the news saying that her fund will be sending volunteers to Japan. Please go to the link above and help if you can. The people of Japan need all of our help, and every little bit counts.
Thank you and many blessings to you.
