#Donate to (地震と津波) earthquake & tsunami relief funds:

1.) Google Crisis Response: Japanese Red Cross Society.

1.A.) Visit and

2.) Show support by wearing Lady Gaga's WE PRAY FOR JAPAN.
However, since you'll "waste" your money on the inevitable
high sunken costs known as the shipping & handling, donating
directly to the credible disaster management organizations
will be worth your money. Yes, I know that showing off your band
will help "raise awareness" and perhaps prompt other people to
support the cause, but the sure-fire way to make an immediate
huge difference in the victims' lives is to connect with the Red Cross
and others providing the necessities of life.

3.) Other organizations: ♥`1`♥, ♥`2`♥ & ♥`3`♥ fr:
This is insignificant, but I just noticed that the URL for ♥`1`♥
says "five ways" when the actual article talks about 6 ways.
Check out the typo, and if you're outspoken enough,
tell the website's administrator. Although, changing it
will void the link that people already distributed. Anyway...


Are you culturally aware?

White flowers are linked to Japanese funerals.
Read about etiquette and history.


About Japan's Family Registration System:

Eh~? They know the number of survivors, but not the exact
number of people missing. The reason is birth records were
damaged/washed away. Forever lost!? "The city in which a
baby was born keeps the Japanese birth certificate (shuseisho
meisho or shusshou todoke kisaijiko shomeisho) on file."
(Source: There's no central database!? *Shakes head*
It's always a good idea to ask for and store elsewhere
a certified true copy of your (and loved one's) birth certificate.
