Wondering what you can do to help Japan?

Simple. Here are a few options:

If you live in the U.S., you can text “REDCROSS” to 90999 to make a $10 donation to Japan earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief (info via @RedCross). From the comfort of your cellphone.


If you live in the U.K., Save The Children has launched a £3 million appeal to help Japan.


Wherever you are, you can go to the Medical Teams website to donate or even propose help if you’re a doctor because there is a shortage in Japan.


For a web-based contribution, Mercy Corps has a batch of banners that you can embed to your website or blog to help collect funds. Just like this one:


Below is a QR code that you can embed to your website or blog, share on Facebook, tweet, distribute everywhere. It links to the Japanese Red Cross.

Great design work by SET Japan.


You can please yourself by shopping on Etsy’s special page for Japan relief. Each purchase will generate a donation.

And finally

You can go to CNN’s Tsunami aid and relief page for more resources.

Please spread the word!

Social Media good. A one-shot cause seemed too little and short-lived.
So this quick note is to inform you, dear readers, that I’ve started supporting “charity : water” as of today.

You too can help me raise funds that will help provide clear water in poorer countries.
It’s one click away, it’s the box in the right sidebar below.
It’s easy, it’s free and with you can come back every day.
ONE CLICK, ONE MINUTE PER DAY to change and save lives !

Many thanks to the official sponsors: Sony (primarily), HTC, Dove, Timberland, Social Vibe and many many more

The causes are time-limited so keep an eye out for the new one when this expires. To remain informed, follow us via RSS or request an email update notification (see top right of sidebar)
