Please Help

March 13th, 2011 · 9 Comments · Uncategorized

This is so easy — please, if you have your phone with you, text JAPAN to 50555 to make a $10 donation to Global Giving. It will take you under 15 seconds and will help their on-the-ground efforts to provide relief and vital services to victims of Friday’s earthquake and tsunami. If everyone who shows up on DALS today does this, we can really do some good. If you would like to donate more than $10, please go to Global Giving‘s website. Thank you.

    As an added incentive to donate to GlobalGiving, lots of Japan-based bloggers are holding raffles where donations entitle you to entry tickets to win all kinds of goodies.

    If you’re interested, have a look here:

    Thank you so much for thinking of us here in Japan. It is very much appreciated.

    Do you know if this is only valid for people in the us?

    Thank you. Than you. I am a Japanese living in the US. I read many food-related blogs but I didn’t find anyone who mentioned the disaster in Japan and tried to help. You are the best!
    Also, thank you so much for all of you who responded and made donations. I can’t explain how much we appreciate. We love you all!

    Livia – I just heard back from GG. Unfortunately only phones operated by a US carrier can text to donate. Anyone can, however use PayPal to donate through their website, http://www.globalgiving.org
    Hope this helps.
