For those of you located in the Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary, Apex) I am organizing a raffle and auction to raise money for Japan on this upcoming Friday, April 1st. The details of it are on my professional photography blog. If you live in the area, or know people that do, please spread the word! Thank you in advance!
Japan needs your help. Take a few minutes and look at these photos. Words aren’t necessary to describe the horror the Japanese people are going through right now. For those of us around the world that can not physically help, we can help from afar and I don’t mean by praying. Pray if you like and if that helps you, but they need our financial support as well. There are plenty of ways you can help Japan. Why not go one day without drinking your morning coffee or drink one less drink when going out with friends. Maybe share a meal with somebody when you go out to dinner instead of each getting one. Save anyway you can, even if it is only few dollars and please give this money to Japan. That being said, make sure you donate to a trustworthy group that will use the money for Japan. Here is a wonderful list of charities that will get the money to Japan. Or you can buy an inspiring tshirt from my friend Adam. All the profits will go to the Japanese Red Cross. From his site:
Our hearts are broken.
100% of the profit from this shirt will go to the japanese red cross.
Please let us know if you have any questions about the final destination of the proceeds.
The text on the shirt says “the sun will rise again”
By now, you have all seen how horrible things that are going on in Northern Japan and if you are American, you probably have filled out your bracket (or at least started to). Now it’s time to make it count. To help those affected by the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Tohoku, Japan, I’ve created a March Madness for Japan group to help raise money for Japan. 85% of the money raised will go to an organization involved with helping out and 15% will go towards the top 5 finishers. The more the merrier, so head over to http://savemiyagi.eventbrite.com/ and have fun while helping Japan! Thank you in advance!
Having lived for three years in Sendai, Miyagi Ken, in Tohoku Japan, this horrible natural disaster hits home with me. Just wanted to write a quick post to share some links that might be of help to some people, in or out of Japan. First some quick stuff for US Citizens that are in Japan.
Other than that, a couple of people have already made some great posts with resources and links. Instead of me copying them, just go check out their sites:
