Free ways to help Japan

Many of you, including myself, have mentioned that you’d love to help Japan, but don’t have the money to give. Luckily, there are a few free ways to help, most of which are super easy and only take a few seconds! I’ve listed the free ways to help below. Please add any efforts you know of in the comments below. Thank you!

Sorry for answering the questions on their daily polls, but FreeKibble and FreeKibbleKat will give 100% of their kibble raised today to animal relief efforts in Japan and if they raise 100 million pieces of Kibble, Halo will double their amount. Each question answered equals 10 pieces of kibble.

If you “like” Dog Bless You on Facebook, $1 will be donated to the organization to help finance the use of search and rescue dogs in Japan. The more dogs they have on location helping out, the more people will be found.

DoSomething.org is asking young people to join Paper Cranes for Japan in either taking photos of origami cranes or making their own and then taking photos and uploading them to their site. “Why cranes? Cranes are sacred creatures in Japanese culture. According to ancient legend, anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish—like long life or recovery from illness—by a crane. DoSomething.org aims to collect 100,000 photos of origami cranes from young people to represent 100 wishes for relief and healing to all who are affected by this tragic natural disaster.”

On the Airii~n deshou?! blog, I found this YouTube video which you can leave a positive comment on and 50 cents will be donated by the maker of the video to help Japan.

Thanks to FreeNuts.com, I found out that Voskos Greek Yogurt will donate $1 for every “like” on their Facebook status that states that they will give money to Japan from now till March 22nd.

The lovely Vivien of The Eclectic Life shared the “Bloggers Day of Silence” where everyone who has a blog can participate. “The aim is just raise awareness and respect and acknowledge the devastation going on in Japan.” I’ll be taking part and you can, too, by following these simple guidelines.

These aren’t ways to help Japan, but they may help you. With all of the photos and news of devastation, it’s good to be reminded there’s a little bit of good everywhere you look. The Huffington Post has an assortment of survival and miracle stories with photos and videos.
