Please check out the satellite pictures of Japan after the tsunami here. You can move the slider in the middle of each set of photos to get a better picture of the before/after situation. It's harrowing. I feel like I owe Japan a lot for bringing me Arashi and manga and sushi and many, many other wonderful things, so it's really distressing to see all the damage they've sustained in the past few days.

If you haven't heard yet, there are a lot of fandom charity events going around LJ to help out Japan, most notably, [livejournal.com profile] help_japan. I don't know which organizations are the "best ones" to donate to, because I don't think Japan has made an official statement on their need for international as of yet. However, Google has provided a direct way to donate to the Japanese Red Cross here. Adding to that, if you'd like to donate your time/money via a fundraiser, [livejournal.com profile] arashi_on has a very active one going on here; my thread is here (I've listed other fandoms I can write for, so it definitely doesn't have to be Arashi-related).

And, as ever, there are still relief efforts being made in Haiti, New Zealand, and the Gulf (oil spill), so contributions to any of those areas are important, too (more links in this post).

Probably your f-list is filled with these kind of posts, so I'm sorry if you're already familiar with those communities. Mainly I just wanted to share that NYTimes link.


UPDATE: FIC LIST and PROGRESS (in order of people contacting me -- but since most of you guys pretty much donated around the same time, I'm sort of writing whatever I have the most ideas for at the time)
