日本のために祈る, Please do your part to help!


Please do your part to help and support Japan!

I'm sure by now everyone have already heard about the tragic earthquake that hit Japan on Friday 11th March 2011. (Why does all bad events happen on the 11th -.-)

Almost all of the blogs I have been following has been posting about the Japan Earthquake and I feel I should do my part to help as well. It is very hard to block out this overwhelming and tragic event since the TV, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and more are constantly updating news about the earthquake.

I just did a search on google for the death toll of the Japan Earthquake and found this information..

"Sendai, Japan (CNN) -- In a nation already besieged with grief over mounting casualties, fears of possible radiation and the threat of more earthquakes, thousands of bodies reportedly surfaced Monday, and a government official confirmed another explosion at a nuclear reactor building.
The official death toll reached 1,647 on Monday. But the numbers did not take into account the 2,000 bodies that Japan's Kyodo News said had been found in the hard-hit Miyagi Prefecture on Japan's northeast coast."

It's so depressing watching the news and seeing everyone so worried and stressed and I feel I want to do my part to help out.

My friend, bf and I have donated to the Japanese Red Cross society via Google.

















I think that is the best and most efficient way to donate.

Donations are made in Yen but that means you are donating directly to the Japanese Red Cross so the money should be able to be used straight away to help the Japanese people.

Most online donating systems are made by credit card but if you don't have a credit card you can still make a donation via PAYPAL

If you have Paypal this is the easiest and most straight forward way to donate money

You can choose what organisation and what amount you want to donate

If you are in America you can also donate to the American Red cross
