Donating to Japan

You can make donations through the Red Cross to help the Japanese people affected by this past week's earthquake and tsunami here.

Although there are always worries about how much money actually makes it to people affected by disasters, even if only part of it gets there it is a help.

When disasters hit poor countries, like Haiti, the world responds quickly and generously with donations. When industrialized nations are hit by massive disasters they frequently are not seen as being in need.

Giving is a good way to help remind yourself that if these people lived down the street from you and you could see and experience what they had to deal with, you would be moved to help them, regardless of their income level.

Hi Terri,

Thanks for your post on Japan and how we can give.

My friend, Rebecca, lives in Sendai near where the epicanter of the quake was.

She wrote an interesting post about what happened that day.

Here's a link to her blog:

I'm trying to figure out how to subscribe to ALL comments on your blog. I see how you can do it separately from each post, but I'd like to subscribe to all.

I know on my blog I put a widget which allows people to subscribe to all posts and/or comments. Do you think you could do that? Or tell me some other way I can subscribe to all comments?

I'm lazy, and don't want to miss any awesomeness...

(Ill subscribe to comments on THIS post so I can get your answer! lol)

Steve, I'll check that out!

evangelically incorrect, I don't know if there is a way to automatically subscribe to all comments on a particular Blogger blog.

If there is I would love to know about it because I always forget to hit the subscribe button on posts.

There's probably a way to do it....but I'm too lazy to figure it out! ;-)
