In a story by Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times, Baltimore Ravens safety Haruki Nakamura has been honored by the American Red Cross and Japan for his disaster relief efforts towards helping out after the horrific earthquake and tsunami.

Nakamura is one of the only Japanese players in the NFL and immediately sprang to work raising over $60,000 in a fundraiser held at the Aberdeen Ironbirds' Ripken Stadium in Harford County earlier this year. Nakamura's efforts were highlighted by appearances by other Ravens' players to contribute to his his goal to help out the many victims of the disaster.

As noted in the article, Haruki was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation from the Japan ambassador and in exchange, gave him one of his Ravens' jerseys.
