The natural disaster has hit home with the Philadelphia Union, as midfield Kyle Nakazawa has friends and family in both Japan and Hawaii and has asked Union fans to pray for those he is close to.

Those who want to help can go to www.redcross.org and donate to Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami. People can also text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation to help those affected by the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific.
