My thoughts are with you Japan.
Thank you to everyone who asked me about my friends in Tokyo – I really appreciate the thought. I’ve talked to Nozomi and she’s doing fine; she was stressed about not being able to contact her family for a while but they’ve since gotten in touch. I hope that the rest of my friends – and all of your friends and loved ones – are also safe. It’s terrifying to look at the photos and videos of the tsunami unfolding and hear about the threat of nuclear power plant meltdowns. It’s also amazing and inspiring to see the way people rally around the world to help each other in times of crisis like this. Here are a few ways you can help:
Donate to the Red Cross on their website or by texting REDCROSS to 90999, which will in turn donate $10.
Find friends and family with Google Person Finder
