Donations, Charities, Fundraisers!

I’m sorry, I hate to post music because it gives the impression that I’m not caring about the disaster. I really do, believe me. I want to go to Japan this Summer to take part in the relief effort but I’m reading that one must be part of a rescue team in order to have permission to enter country right now. ]: I want to donate money but I’m flat out broke. ]]:

Watching various Japanese anime/music sites, there’s alot of charities and fundraisers going down that you can take part in!!

Our friends at TheOtaku have organized a fundraiser where you can donate money via google or spread awareness through your artwork!

    Jean i think it’s great you did this post<3
    i still feel shock from the event like there's a hole in your heart. I'm not sure what way to put it….
    I want to help so much but I just have no means to…
    I do hope for the best and hope people all over join in…

  3. Thanks for posting this! I can’t donate yet since I’m still a student but I know some people who are eager to help.
    I will continue to pray especially since my classmate’s mother is still missing… I pray for everyone and I hope you can add more to that list!
