Relief for Japan

We’d be remiss not to post about the current global crisis after Friday’s severe earthquake in Japan. Music-related charities would usually be our suggestion – the Lady Gaga-designed bracelets, for example, or the auctioned items of Blink-182 and Linkin Park- but this goes well beyond the music world. And newly-formed relief efforts sometimes don’t yield the results needed.

Our thoughts are with the people affected during this time, and we urge everyone to give money to a well-established charity, where your donations will be used most effectively. The Japan Earthquake efforts from Direct Relief, AmeriCares, and International Rescue Committee are all great options.
