Help Japan

In case you somehow haven’t yet heard, a devastating 8.9/9.0 magnitude earthquake hit the Pacific Ocean near Northeastern Japan at around 2:46pm on March 11 (JST) causing damage with blackouts, fire and tsunami.  The death toll may stand at more than 10,000.

In the days since the quake, Japan has reeled from fires at a nuclear power plant, only adding to the chaos and confusion.  There are various ways you can help, and no way is too small.  For starters, if you have a blog or Facebook page, why not spread the word about ways others can help?

You can text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross.  It simply gets added to your phone bill. 

Alternately, you can text JAPAN to 50555 to donate $10 to GlobalGiving
