hey loves!

so i'm sure you guys have heard about japan and how intense things are over there right now.
it's so unfortunate and my heart definitely goes out to them.
whether you know people in japan or not, there are people struggling to SURVIVE out there so please do what you can!
they need as much help as they can get and there are plenty of easy ways for you to help!

-to donate $10 through the american red cross, text REDCROSS to 90999, or donate through their website.
-to donate $10 through the salvation army, text JAPAN or QUAKE to 80888.
-to donate $10 through unicef, text JAPAN to 864233, or donate through their website
-to donate $10 through save the children, text JAPAN to 20222, or donate through their website.

-buy a cool klp "the rising sun" t-shirt from karmaloop for $20, and 100% of proceeds will go to the red cross.
 -buy a "we pray for japan" bracelet from lady gaga for $5, and 100% of proceeds will go to japan. there are also options for you to donate in addition to buying the bracelet.

 -buy a "japan relief" t-shirt by tory burch for $29, and 100% of proceeds will go to red cross.
-buy a "rebuild japan" t-shirt by dissizit for $30, and 100% of proceeds will go to japan relief efforts.

-for each random commercial you watch, causes will donate $0.10 to japan. it's super easy, try it! go here and click "give a minute"!

-look. this isn't the time to be modest!! i know you guys are talented people. use your talent to help raise money if you don't have much money to personally give. i definitely know what that's like. i'm a pretty broke college student.

here's some ideas:
-are you a designer? design a shirt for japan, get the pre-sales going, and have proceeds go to japan.
-super intelligent being? share your intelligence by tutoring and give the money you make!
-artistic? sell some of your artwork and donate the proceeds.
-musically inclined? get some of your musician friends together and have a benefit concert!
-full-time partier? plan a huge house party and donate everything you make!
-whatever your talents are, YOU CAN HELP!

anyways, i got an early graduation present that is on it's way--a camera lens!! (cause i stupidly broke mine) & after trying to figure out ways you guys could help japan, i was trying to think of a way i could personally help!

here's my idea: PHOTOSHOOTS FOR JAPAN!! i'll donate the proceeds to red cross or whatever japan relief organization you want! i'll get my lens by friday, so hit me up!!!! :)

& there should also be local stuff going on around your town in regards to helping japan.  i've read about benefit concerts in different cities and such. keep your eyes and and ears open! do your research!!

more ways to help save japan, here and here.

surely more ways to help japan will surface.
in which case i'll update this post. :)

live to give.
