It has been three weeks since the world heard of the tragic natural disaster in the North East of Japan.
So far it is rather sketchy news from our friends in the North East of Japan. I have contacted Taku to find out as much as I can on the friends we have made in that country. It was with great relief today I found Miwha Masala‘s blog, and she is safe!
I am watching NHK news cast as I am writing this. Personally speaking I am very very humbled by the way the Japanese people have reacted to this disaster. Calmly and with intelligence that the country has reacted and coped with the situation.
So, the question is what can we do in Second Life to help?
Tradewinds Yacht club held a very successful auction event supporting relief efforts. They have a huge mountain of Linden bears which have collected a total of $L400,00! Click here for a link to the blog page.
The Linden donation bears were a real positive step by Linden Labs to aid the relief efforts they can still be found here.
Caf has also been raising the awareness and showing support for the Japanese people. He has created a suit of ACA sails that will show all around that you support.
They can be found at ACA Island. The money donated for these sails will go to earthquake relief. Wear yours with pride and show your support, not just now, but in the future, the clean up and reconstruction of this area of Japan will take a long time. This is no fashion accessory this is showing long-term commitment to our friends, and in Second Life we stand firmly besides our friends no matter where they are in the world.
