As you know, an 8.8 earthquake struck Chile Friday night, making it one of the powerful earthquakes to strike the Earth in more than a century. Numerous tsunamis and aftershocks of 6.0 and higher followed the initial destructive quake throughout the weekend. Over 700 deaths have been reported (thus far) as nearly half-million buildings were destroyed in the quake. Untold numbers are missing and nearly 2 million people are displaced, injured or directly affected. In response to this tragic crisis and the urgent need for relief, Fortune Cookie Soap is making a donation today to Americares.
