NEWS: Japan needs our help!

To Japan by *klnothincomin over at deviantart.net.
Unless you have been living in a cave or on the moon you have undoubtedly heard about the horrific events in Japan. Not only where the hit with a 9.0 earthquake but also a 33 foot high tsunami which has also caused a nuclear crisis not seen since Chernobyl. I am no where near a wealthy or rich person but I was able to donate a few dollars toward the Japanese relief fund for the country that has brought so much joy and entertainment to my life! I'm not asking you to give away your whole paycheck to help but even if you could give a small amount like I have it would be better than nothing! I'm sure if your a visitor to my blog you are a fan of Anime/Manga and it only seems right to give back to the people who bring us these things in their hour of need! I'm going to list some place you can donate to to help out those in need. Please if you can help out! But if you can not please just keep Japan in your thoughts and prayers! Doumo arigatou gozaimasu!
