Support the Red Cross :
Help with the Japan and Pacific Disasters.


Today in Japan, a Earthquake measuring 8.9 hit [ though mostly underwater ] this Earthquake was soon followed by a unexpected Tsunami. Thousands were stranded on rooftops, water all around them.
A High-speed bullet train and cruise ship both went missing, 400 passengers total to be on them.
A ship holding nearly 100 people was sweept away.
Many homes, cards, railroads, and businesses were swept away. 1,000 people are presumed to be dead.

Tragedy is the only word i can use to describe such a horror, my heart breaks hearing such things.
That's why i want to spread word through gaia in the hopes that just maybe we can help in some way.
There is more then one way to help too, donating is a very nice way to help, but another could be word of mouth, and bumping, helping find articles and more information, so this thread could be noticed and hopefully others will donate.

A little help goes a long way, and here in this thread we hope to raise some help for the tragedy in Japan that occurred this morning/afternoon by sponsoring Red Cross and spreading word through out gaia of this horrific event, with the help of Gaia and it's users, maybe we can support them in some way.

I know gaia will eventually start a donation pool via bundle, but we'd all like to still help in someway.
If you are attempting to locate a missing person in Japan, use this thread here.
