Don't forget about Japan



Help Japan?

Well as friend and fan of Japan, I was long thinking of helping somehow. But it's hard to find out how it's the best way; certainly praying won't do shit and there are rumors the Red-cross will just put your money in one bag with everything else, maybe landing in some country in Africa.
It's acutally really hard to help Japan, because they're also a very proud nation, so massive support in some way is actually offensive. But as proud a nation you can be, you'll still need food and water, which is getting spare at the moment. So my suggestion is, support those who are gratefull for everything and need it the most - the children. If you want to donate, go to:
This will probably be the best way.

If you're just as worried as me, about Fukushima-powerplant, keep this site in eye:
This is an online weatherstation in Tokyo. So if you're concerned about Tokyo, don't watch the news; go to this site instead and my your own picture. It shows you wind-direction/speed and most important CPM (counts per minute). After the wind blew some of the radioactivity in the direction of Tokyo, this went up to over 50, since then, it went back to 20, up to 40 again and won't go under 20 again.
If you want to know more about CPM go here: vaughns-1-pagers
As you'll see 50 CPM isn't that dangerous, but at least it shows, that Tokyo in fact is/was affected.

I hope all of this helps you somehow and especially helps Japan. So please donate even if it's just 5€/$; that's allready some water and/or a meals.

  5. Donated quite a while ago. It's Japan, I'm sure the government has billions to spend assisting their people get back on track. The problem is the unavailability of solutions to the nuclear reactor crisis's...

  21. I'v donated and think it's a great cause. I just wish I myself could go over there and start rebuilding and care.

    AntwortenLöschen
  22. I sent a little right after the first quake. That's about as much as I can spare with my student money :<

    However Japan isn't really like Thailand and Indonesia, Japan already is very wealthy so the need isn't THAT massive.

    AntwortenLöschen

  28. First time I saw the tsunami in the news, I thought it was a CG reenactment. But then I realized it was the actual footage from a helicopter, I was horrified.

  29. This is a very devastating time for Japan and I have made donations to Unicef. It is the human spirit that pushed me to make this donation, and I hope more and more people find their humanity to help another human out.

    AntwortenLöschen
  33. Great cause. Definitely needs all the support it can get.

    AntwortenLöschen
  34. Agreed, a good cause.
    I just hope the rest of the world learns a lesson from this regarding the supposed safety of nuclear power.

    AntwortenLöschen
  37. Its "better" that this hit Japan vs another country, with less resources to help combat it. It is still an awful thing that has happened. I will contribute once I get my paycheck. Thanks for the sites, keep postin' them.

    AntwortenLöschen
  41. It's crazy how that all happened to japan, I'm personally more worried about the radiation than the destroyed property, but I donated none the less. My heart goes out to them.

    AntwortenLöschen
  42. Already donated. They need our help and support. Great post.

    AntwortenLöschen
  43. I have donated as well. We should remember all people who are suffering and help where we can. The Japanese have went through a lot, but fortunately they're strong and proud people.
