Japan EQ - what can you do?

Several people can contacted me about "what can i do
It usually takes a day to out together the assessment and plan. Please be patient: I will post everything on my blog http://sarajeans-notes.blogspot.com/ and on FB.

what we know so far:
The Red Cross Japan is asking people to donate blood and money but at this time they are still assessing needs. They sent a team for assessment last night.

Right now however they are asking people NOT to call them about volunteering- they need to keep the lines open.

I have put out a call to several disaster relief NGOs I know to see what their needs are.

The Yahoo Disaster fund:

Or you can donate directly to groups that do emergency work - which of these will be doing work in Tohoku i am not sure yet.

March 13 Fundraiser for victims of the Christchurch earthquake CANCELLED

SORRY but THE MARCH 13 CHRISTCHURCH EQ FUNDRAISER HAS BEEN CANCELED!

I THINK IT COULD HAVE BEEN AN IMPORTANT TIME TO BRING TOGETHER PEOPLE IN TOKYO WHO CARE. IN OUR DIFFICULTIES WE SHOULD NOT FORGET OR IGNORE OTHERS WHO HAVE BEEN SUFFERING. MONEY WILL BE NEEDED FOR A LONG TIME COMING. LET US NOT TAKE THIS AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE COME MORE INSULAR THAN WE ALREADY ARE.

This Sunday, March 13, at Favela in Aoyama a special event to raise funds for the victims of the Christchurch earthquake will be held. The night will include top DJs, live painting,and delicious food. There will opportunities to win a hamper of fantastic New Zealand food and wine and a whole lot more.

Every cent raised will go to the official Christchurch Earthquake appeal.
A donation at the door will get you in so make sure you come and enjoy a great Sunday night and help us make a difference for Christchurch.

DJs:
Aosawa (Freerange, Redbox)
Sam Fitzgerald (P4P/TNP)
 Atsushi Yamamoto (RIGHT, RIGHT, RIGHT)
