As I was in Japan for almost four years and still have friends who live in Japan, I’m very affected by what’s happening there lately. At first I felt really helpless, I wanted to be there and help my friends and this country I love. I’m sure there are other people out there who feel the same, who would like to help. That’s why I decided to list all the ways I know through which people can help. I didn’t want to write a very very long post, and I wanted the list to be easily found again if you need, so I’ve created a dedicated page. You can find it here: http://amelienomori.wordpress.com/aider-le-japon-help-japan.
If you feel like you can’t give a lot, maybe you can try to create a little something for a grouped charity sale, or buy a tiny item at such a sale. And if you really can’t do any of that, please talk about those events around you, so more people know they can do something. I’m not Japanese, but I’m happy to see that so many people care and are trying to help as they can. Thank you to all those nice people!
