Japan earthquake and tsunami: How to help

From the site: Japan was hit by one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded on March 11. The magnitude-9.0 quake spawned a deadly tsunami that slammed into the nation's east coast, leaving a huge swath of devastation in its wake. Thousands of people are dead and many more are still missing or injured.

Japan has often donated when other countries have experienced disasters, such as when Hurricane Katrina impacted the United States. Below are organizations that are working on relief and recovery in the region.

Japan earthquake and tsunami: How to help

Your donation could save many lives in Japan.
Even if each person donated just a small amount money, when put together it would accumulate into a huge amount of money. 
So please, just one dollar, one pound (or whatever) is fine.
Help our people in Japan!!

Japan Earthquake & Tsunami: 7 Simple Ways to Help

I'm sure there are places you can go in your own country for donation!
Thousands of people here are waiting for your help.


  1. I've sent money to a local bank that established a Hawaii-Japan relief fund; I wrote about it on my blog just in case anyone else wants to donate that way. is also donating a portion of their sales to the Red Cross for victims of the earthquake.

  2. I thank you very much, dear Beth, for your effort and the information you provided here for us.
    You don't know how much you helped us by your action.

    I send you my love.

  3. Aww, I wish I could send a substantial amount of money, but I'm too poor. But Japan will get stronger from this! I think.

    Anyway SAYA, I'm really impressed by people who speak more than one language, I get envious or something. haha

  4. I send in what little I could....

    私は大学生です。お金がありません。 D=

  5. Altough I don't have much I donated already and pray everyday for Japan. It's not much I can do from Austria but I try my best. >.<

  6. @dissident93: as I said, you don't have to donate a huge amount of money. We only do what we can do.

    I really hope some good can come out of this, dear.
    There are many here who lost their precious family members: especially I feel deeply affected by the suffering of those little ones who lost their parentes. I can not begin to imagine what they are going through..

    You have not got anything to be envious about dear. Each person is perfect as he/she is. It is only the dumb opinions of the mass that tell us that people have to make effort to prove their worth.
    If you've got anythig to be dissident about, be dissident with such popular opinions!
    (and my English isn't all that great anyway.)

    Anyway, thank you very much:)

    @Jazzy the Man: It doesn't matter how much you send, dear. The one coin you sent us may turn into one of the screws we use to reconstruct a broken bridge. We appreciate your effort and kindheartedness! ありがとう!

    @Ayako: I thank you with all my heart on behalf of everyone in Japan! You are saving lives, sweet Ayako, we shall not forget your kindness!

  7. Oh, Saya, I'm so glad you're fine.

    Hugs and my support from México! :)

    The best for your and your country too. :3

  8. I'll try my best to save some money. Really, I will. But for now, I can only try to get others to donate. I'll see if I can pester my friends into doing so.


    And as I said before, I'm glad to know you're alright.

    Also, I'll take this chance to say that I love this blog dearly. Ever since I stumbled upon this, I've been addicted to it. Thank you for entertaining me. ^___^

    -Insane Malaysian Fan, Dan. ^^

  9. @Dorian: Thank you, Dorian, very nice to see you here, sir!:D

    We need hugs and support from people, more than ever!

    @Dan~: by all means, dear Dan~, get your richest friends to donate!XD

    Seriously, it would be a great help, if you only gave us a penny.

    I don't know, sir, if I should take your comment as a compliment, as I think the stuff on this blog is rather toxic to the mind and the body :) But thank you all the same!

    Best wishes to you all!

  10. Already donated to the Red Cross :D I just always wish there was more to do when it comes to things like this :/ I'll just keep Japan and your people in my thoughts and keep donating.

    Stay safe Saya!

  11. Haha, indeed I will. XP I think my school will run some donation for Japan. And now I've got.... 30 Ringgit. :P I'm a poor boy haha. I'll try collect some more.

    Oh, and there's no need to say 'Sir' XP. I'm 14 years old. :P

  12. Would one dollar really make a difference though?

    But your English is so much better than my Japanese, I only know how to say my name. I've always been envious of people knowing a foreign language, even if it is expected.

  13. I've donated all my pocket money for the next six months and what I earn from my job at the vet's. It's not much, but I hope it'll make a difference to someone.
    I really admire the way Japan stood up to the earthquake. There's so much loss, but you guys made sure it couldn't be any worse. And you didn't break down or anything. If it had been any other country, everything would have been in chaos right now.
    Ghost stories are not the only reason why I love Japan.

  14. @Adorably Dead: Thank you very very much, dear! I think you have done enough for us. The stuation in Japan looks slightly brighter than before, now that the power station seemes to be getting more under control!

    But there are still thousands of people needing help..:(

    @Dan~: It doesn't matter how old you are, I respect people of all ages!

    It doesn't matter how much you donate, dear. We only can do what we can do!
    Thank you very much!

    @dissident93:of course it would make a difference! I mean with one dollar you could buy one of the screws to reconstruct a fallen bridge, could you not?

    Learning a language is a lot of fun, although it requires a lot of hard work too, unless you are very talened!

    @Tani: Tani, dear, what you have done is very kind and loving, but please do not overtax yourself!

    We don't want you to sacrifice yourself in order to save us! You've got a life of your own!

    But I reallly thank you,from the bottom of my heart.

    <(_ _)> * a deep bow*

  15. I guess you're right SAYA. I'm certain the Japan will grow stronger from this.

    Anyway, So after the situation dies a little, you will continue to add more stuff to the blog? And did I miss the reason you where gone for almost a entire season?

  16. dissident93: The situation is very uncertain, and anyway I'm very busy at the moment. So I can't promise you anything.

  17. Right, take as long as you need.

  18. AH. I'm relieved to hear that you're ok Saya.

  19. Thank you dear Anonymous! Much appreciated!

  20. Hey Saya how bad is the radiation affecting everyone? The news here is kinda making it sound really bad o.o

    Hope you are alright~

  21. @Chris~: I'm fine. Our city hasn't been affected that much. Our water hasn't yet been contaminated with radiation like some other cities's water. And even the water that has been conaminated seems only dangerous to babies and not to adults.(You can read a bit about the water in the article below.)

    I try not to go out too often and we dry our laundry indoors, although I don't think we have to worry too much about radiation in my area..


  22. Global Giving was a very easy way to send the donation. Thanks for the link.

  23. @George: Thank you very much, George, from the bottom of my heart!

  24. Right, Dan~ here. I've FINALLY donated! ^O^ My school managed to gather RM521. ^^
