Help Japan ....

 A print by Rob Dobi.
All profits from poster to benefit disaster recovery in Japan.

“Every good act is charity. A man's true wealth hereafter is the good that he does in this world to his fellows.”

As you must know, a massive earthquake and tsunami hit Japan leaving behind a trail of destruction, devastation, and death. They could really use our help right now. An easy way to give to Japan is by donating to the Red Cross. You can either go to the Red Cross website, the Red Cross Japan fundraising page on Facebook, or simply text ‘Red Cross” to 90999. If you decide to text $10 will be automatically charged to your phone bill as a donation. Global Giving is another donation option and you can even give through the iTunes store.

New York City residents can donate through The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City by dialling 311 or visiting the 311 website.

Even if you cannot donate financially you might keep Japan in your thoughts. While you are thinking you might add Bahrain and Libya, sad times ....


22:15 update - "It is heartbreaking to see a renegade country like Libya shoot pro-democracy protesters. But it’s even more wrenching to watch America’s ally, Bahrain, pull a Qaddafi and use American tanks, guns and tear gas as well as foreign mercenaries to crush a pro-democracy movement — as we stay mostly silent." Nicholas Kristof in the New York Times.
