Hold on, Japan!

What Japan needs now are prayers and donations. We must understand that not everyone has the capability to donate, so to those who are complaining about things like ‘meh,go get your ass off and do something!’ there are people who are willing, but not capable, if you get what I mean.

You may donate at International Federation of Red Cross. Any amount would help. You may also text redcross to 90999 and donate $10 for support

Let us not be ignorant to what is happening to our world.


Contribute to this spreadsheet to those who are concerned about the seiyuus’ safety. Thank you!
