Following the dramatic events in Japan, with an earthquake of 8.9 on the Richter scale and a disastrous tsunami, we would like to encourage everyone to support the international Japan relief funds. For a start, we have decided to donate 10% of our gross revenue during the coming weeks to different organizations that provide support for people who are suffering due to this tragedy. We will post more details about the organizations we have chosen to support soon.
Apart from our own donation action, we would like to encourage you all to join our effort and direct your support to one of the trustworthy organizations who actively work on the ground, providing the Japanese people struck with the recent tragedy with help that they so desperately need.
The global relief efforts have only just started, but below you will find the links to some of the organizations that are collecting donations for Japan:
- International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
- Japanese Red Cross
- American Red Cross
- British Red Cross
- Save The Children
- International Medical Corps
- UNICEF USA
- Doctors Without Borders
- World Vision
- Direct Relief International
You are welcome to name further donation links in the comments.
This is our first donation attempt. We hope it will be a successful one and we will post more details once the action is finished. We also hope to be able to repeat it in the future, whenever someone needs help.
Thank you for your support!
