Let's rescue Japan!
Please lend a hand in saving Japan from its ongoing calamities.
A high amount of radiation is leaking from the fires and explosions of the four nuclear power plants in Fukushima prefecture. [read more on the radiation hazard], over 2000 bodies have been found on the coastal areas of Miyagi prefecture and still many more are trapped under rubble [more on tsunami aftermath], and food and electricity shortages are occurring daily across the mainland [more on power cuts].
You can help by making donations to organizations such as:
THE RED CROSS (text REDCROSS to 90999 or visit their site here)
THE JAPAN EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI RELIEF FUND (visit their site here)
INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL CORPS (text MED to 80888 or visit their site here)
If you are a Japanese youth or college student, you can lend a hand by joining YOUTH FOR 3.11 to help with reconstruction projects once the Self-Defense Forces and government gives the OK for civilian volunteer participation.
