Dear fellow Lolitas,
I’m sure you’ve already heard about the horrible earthquake and the massive tsunami that have rocked Japan. Please please please, do your part to help, if you haven’t already!
One of the easiest ways to donate is via the American Red Cross, where you can choose for your donation to go directly to the relief efforts in Japan. Donate via credit card, and the minimum donation is $10.
Alternatively, if you prefer not to donate via cash donations, several e-stores across the internet will donate 100% of their proceeds to relief efforts if you buy certain products! In particular, I’m eyeing tees from Goodie Two Sleeves, and will probably be buying one or two once they decide on a beneficiary.
For more places to buy stuff and donate at the same time, google “100% proceeds Japan relief efforts“.
I’ve just made a donation via Global Giving as they take PayPal. I hope that you’ll be able to donate too. Let me know in the comments in what ways you’ve helped!
EDIT: Please read the comments for more ways to donate, and some information regarding donating to major relief organisations. It is also worthy to note that you should be VERY CAREFUL about which organisations you donate to and be wary of scam “organisations”; most of which pop up immediately after a disaster to prey on the public’s goodwill. Choose an organisation that will keep you CLEARLY UPDATED of where your funds are going to. Choose a fund that has clearly identified what organisation your donation will assist. Be giving, but do give wisely!
EDIT 2: This brilliant compilation of available information is the post you really need to read about the earthquake! Please view it if you haven’t already!
