Japan Relief Effort by teews666 Japan Relief Effort by teews666
I'm a bit sick of seeing all these images on the DeviantArt front-page with the same stupid messages. Seriously, if you really want to help, do something that will actually make a difference. Those people need more than prayers and blessings! :(
Two hands working can do more to help than a million clasped in prayer.

International Medical Corps is responding to the health needs of the disaster's victims. To donate or learn about other ways you can contribute to their medical response, visit [link]

The Red Cross has also launched efforts in Japan. Visit [link] or text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10

Some other groups you can check out are:

Network for Good - [link]

Interaction - [link]

Global Giving - [link] or text JAPAN to 50555 to give $10


Just an afterthought, but who the fuck are you people praying to exactly? Cause isn't god (assuming he exists) the cunt who caused the tsunami and earthquake in the first place?
That's like asking a serial killer to help save the victims he just murdered! :O_o:

Hmmm... Gee lets think, I'm 17, I have no money or a credit card, I'm currently unemployed, anything that I CAN do for Japan I can't do because I can't just drop everything, join a charity or relief organization, and fly to Japan to aid the relief efforts. So yeah, I'm pretty much just some useless bum who's sending useless prayers to people who need to know that there are actually people who care.

Things like this make me feel worse because, right now, there's not a single thing I'm able to do. I have friends who have lost people in that stupid earthquake and tsunami and are actually still searching for other people they know. But, then again, I guess don't really care about them if I'm just praying and hoping those people will be okay, am I?

Well, for some people praying has a lot of meaning. I personally am not the praying type either, I donated money and tried to make sure my friends over there are safe and now all I can do is watch the news and cry 'cause there's really nothing else you can do than that.

And while I don't want to offend anybody, neither religious nor agnostics, it's easy to blame "God" for everything. If you ask a person of the church "Why does God allow all these bad things to happen to mankind, why does he allow war, natural catastrophe, hunger etc." he'll say that to God, we are like children and while you want to prevent your child from putting its hand on a hot stove, it still has to get burned once to fully understand just why it shouldn't put the hand there when it's hot.

Again, I'm not justifying all these "Pray for Japan" signs either and most of them do annoy me to be honest, but it just shows how helpless people are and of course they don't have a general solution about what to do. Besides, banners like that raise awareness and after being on the net almost straight from the 11th on, I think it's much needed.

I think especially in these times we shouldn't point fingers nor nit-pick but rather be open-minded and tolerant. Everybody deals with things differently and I am sure many of the "Pray for Japan" people did donate money as well...

... but that's just my personal privat opinion.

Heh, you're welcome^^

I am not religious either, at least not in the classical way, but I just had to relieve some pent-up anger because there were things I've seen on the net that made me very, very sad. The fact that we are faceless, nameless people on the net makes critisizing very easy and if we don't open our eyes from time to time and try to see the other side too, we'll become emotionally and logically deprived.

some people can't donate, and so they send those messages. be kind, not everyone can afford to help in the same way. but i do understand that the ame message can get a little annoying.
