In Japan, as the stories are still unfolding, stories of grief, or unity. There is desperate need for money, supplies, and support. Over 90 countries have pledge their support for Japan. Even with the situation still happened for Japan. One thing reminds, Japan still needs support!
Now even as I work toward preparing for next weekend’s Aria MMF, work on articles for Fanboy.com or batter around ideas for Anime Diet. This is one story I still feel is important to share. The charity work and fund raising promotion that I have noticed that are in the midst of forming.
Deb of About.com mentions about manga artists contribution.
Reverse Thieves mentions of an American fans/otakus collaborating with charity efforts.
Japanese Manga Artists are contributing doujinshi for fund raising efforts.
Japan Society in New York sets up a page of where you can donate to. Japan Society in my opinion always has interesting lectures, and movies on Japanese relevant topics that you can go see, when you are in the city.
Anime News Network lists sites for relief effort donations.
