      Sharon D’Agostino is Vice President, Worldwide Corporate Contributions and Community Relations, Johnson & Johnson.

      Like many throughout the world, my colleagues and I are shocked and saddened by the unfolding news of the devastating earthquake in Japan. As always, our first concern has been for the safety of our colleagues and the people of Japan. We hold them in our thoughts.

      Since the earthquake struck, our teams in Japan and the United States have been working around-the-clock to determine how Johnson & Johnson can play a role with relief efforts. In response to the urgent need, Johnson & Johnson has committed $8 million in funds in addition to considerable product donations of medical supplies and consumer hygiene products. We are working with local partners to determine the best opportunities to lend assistance and will continue to assess needs as the situation evolves.

      For short-term relief, one of our partners is the Japan Red Cross. As our primary focus is generally on recovery, we work with partners such as Direct Relief International, International Rescue Committee, Project Hope, Save the Children and World Vision on these efforts.

      This tragedy has profoundly affected colleagues across our Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies. We hold our associates and the people of Japan in our thoughts and prayers. We are committed to help those affected and meet their needs in whatever way we can.
