Japan, be safe. Every dollar counts.

March 13, 2011 — 3 Comments

First, a few things.

People I know from Japan are fine. Call came through at 3am here, waking us up, but at least we knew. Many out there are at a loss, not knowing is the worse… many others have lost loved ones and my condolences go to those.

My hope is that Japan rises, as it’s done under other terrible circumstances. Though, there are obviously things with which we don’t agree, Japan as a culture, they are lovely. So I can’t believe what some people say online… but I guess it’s the internet, and we can’t stop ignorant comments.

I’ve read some horrible HORRIBLE things, and it was just a couple and I couldn’t take them anymore. I hope these people lose their internet connection so they can’t spread such ignorance and hate.

Now that we got all of that out of the way…

Please, take a moment to donate some money through the Japan Society, which is an Japanese-American organization that deals with cultural events.

100% of funds raised will go directly to the efforts.

Even if you’re broke, one or two dollars will suffice.

  1. Fuerza Japón. El terremoto llegó a 9.0 en la escala de Ritcher, según las últimas noticas.


  2. I gave some money to Médecins Sans Frontières. Japan is in serious need of doctors, medical supplies and medicine and these are the people I trust. They have three teams on the ground working, and more teams in Japan and other countries. So my support goes to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières.
