You know what has happened here is absolutely devastating.
Being in Tokyo although its scary and lots of people are filled with panic, I feel lucky to be safe and warm and with food and my apartment. Mostly its really frustrating, knowing we cant just go there to help. The last thing the devasted areas need is another body to keep warm or mouth to feed.
So here are some things from online that WE ALL NEED TO DO!
●One beautiful idea is from ATSUKO KUDO. Her way to help & donate to JAPAN is beautiful :
●Do you speak Japanese? I dont know much about this company but please look at this link you can volunteer by translating through Skype!
●Apple is also dedicating resources to the crisis in Japan. They have created a simple donation page in iTunes [iTunes link] that makes it simple to donate anywhere from $5 to $200 to the Red Cross with just a few clicks.
AMERICAN RED CROSS: Emergency Operation Centers are opened in the affected areas and staffed by the chapters. This disaster is on a scale larger than the Japanese Red Cross can typically manage. Donations to the American Red Cross can be allocated for the International Disaster Relief Fund, which then deploys to the region to help. Donate here.
The Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund was launched at GlobalGiving.org to garner funds that will be given to a variety of relief organizations helping victims of the earthquake. It has already raised over $100,000, particularly from concerned Twitter users around the world.
