RIMS is embarking on a fundraising campaign to aid in the relief efforts in Japan following the earthquake and tsunami that struck the country earlier this month. An estimate of the economic damage resulting from the disaster has placed the figure as high as $300 billion, and many believe that number could be even higher. RIMS' president, Scott Clark, has posed a challenge to each RIMS chapter to make a donation toward this important cause. The RIMS Greater Miami Chapter has authorized a donation of $1,000 and chapters have been challenged to match or exceed this as their resources allow. The funds raised will be donated to the American Red Cross toward its relief work in Japan.
