Reading the last comment brought something to mind that a lot of you might not know. The richter scale, used to measure earthquakes, is base 10 logarithmic, meaning that every magnitude increase of 2.0 is a 1000x increase in power. The 1989 earthquake in the bay area, ca was a 6.9 and this an 8.9 which makes it 1/1000 of the power of this one. The relief comes not only from donations now, which is great to see happening, but will come from continued support as they rebuild their physical and economic infrastructure. It's important not to let these things leave our mind as recovering from an event like this takes a long time.

Also my vote is for the Red Cross, they're the best philanthropic organization I think.

Man, I can't stop thinking and worrying about all those poor people that are trapped under all that rubble in the areas closer to the epicenter. Being trapped and in a remote area that rescuers are having a hard time getting to. Plus it's supposed to be freezing or near freezing about now! It reminds me of that episode of "Sora No Woto", where Felicia was trapped underground waiting to be rescued.

Oh man, and all I can do from the comfort of my home is click on a button and hope it all gets better soon.

I do feel very helpless, but when prayer is all you got, you just have to pray harder I guess. And yeah I'm donating here, there and everywhere I can. Screw paying off the mortgage sooner. Crunchyroll, you got my support, as do the people in Japan!

This is the point where we, americans, come in and help them as much as possible. Getting hit by a tsunami plus an earth and to make it worst a nuclear power plant exploded makes things very bad and we need to help them as a nation.
