The Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) has initiated a special direct campaign to raise funds for those affected by the disaster in Japan.

The funds will be channeled through the International Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. All funds raised through this campaign will count toward 2011 state agency CVC goals.

“The terrible tragedy in Japan has been unexpected and heartbreaking,” Gov. Bob McDonnell wrote in a letter to all state employees. “As we keep the people of Japan in our thoughts and prayers, I would ask you to join me in considering a donation to assist the crisis response efforts.”

To donate, see the CVC website.
