Donate to the Relief Efforts in Japan (DRIVE OVER)
« on: March 13, 2011, 02:24:47 am »
The drive is officially over, and the final tally is $4,130.97!

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past week, you are all aware of the absolute catastrophe that has struck Japan.  We all have a special connection, whether through family or friends living over there, or simply being a fan of their cultural exports.  And as a community we have come together for the betterment of people less fortunate than us.  It's time we come together once again to help those who need help in their time of need.

We will be collecting donations and will be giving all proceeds to the Japanese Red Cross.  Those who choose to donate will get our immense thanks as well as a special site badge for their generosity.  We will be accepting donations through PayPal.  Just press the donate button below.

We thank you for your kindness and support.  Let's show how great of a community we are!

Here's a Google link if you'd rather donate directly to the Japanese Red Cross instead of through us. http://www.google.com/crisisresponse/japanquake2011.html

EDIT: Amazon Payments isn't working, removed button for now ;___;

EDIT 2: as of 3/13 4:30pm EST we have broken $1200.  You guys are amazing!

EDIT 3: Fixed both Paypal and Amazon Payments buttons

EDIT 4: Attachments broke my button, removed.  Amazon Payments still not working, removed for now.

EDIT 5: Drive over!  If you wish to donate but missed the chance please follow the google link to donate directly to the JRC or donate to any reputable charity.

We didn't have a holiday charity drive, but I'm glad to see a chance to give again on this site.  Good on you, TSO.

$20, and that's more than half of my account right now...

Paying for university and the text books for it have made me rather poor at the moment, but I'll scrounge some money up and donate soon.

o7 I salute everybody who supports the relief efforts in Japan.

Couldn't donate as much as I could last time we did this, but I at least sent something.  ^.^

If a lot of people give 20$, we will go very far. No need to be sorry, you did your part.

$30. Every little bit, as the saying goes.
Not to be picky, but why is everyone putting the dollar sign after the number?

Can't you buy gift cards with which you can deal the transaction through either paypal or amazon donate?

$25 donated. It's amazing Japan survived this as well as they did. Let's all make sure they have an easier time recovering from what devastation did occur.

$20 will buy lunch for a few displaced people, at least, so it's still a nice thing to do.

I sent the bit of cash I had left sitting around in my paypal account.

Blargh, if only I had Paypal.
I guess I'll have to do it through one of my friends who owns an account ...

By the way, how different is Amazon Donate from Paypal ? The button doesn't seem to be working for me so I couldn't view it.

It's more of a rent/watch someone else play it game

Also, is there any way for a minor to donate? I'm not "old" enough to get paypal, nor do I have a credit card.

You can use a credit card and pay through that way. You just have to click the left option, that's how I paid for years of Ragnarok Online.

Mm, nothing happens when I click the option ((even after putting in a number in the box). It's probably just my browser, though :V

Yea, that does sound somewhat familiar... I'd recommend giving IE a go if you're feeling adventurous, I think that's how I got around that problem...

I'm pretty hard pressed for money currently so I can't really give that much. However, I donate $20.

Good luck Japan.

Donated.

The mass pictures of "hang in there Japan" on Pixiv really made me move. I was amazed by the number of artists (a lot of familiar and popular) drawing them.

$50 in. Glad to be able to offer support.
ZUN's apparently put on his twitter that he's dropping the usual rule of 'don't put derivative works of my stuff on Nico' because people are doing it for the sake of fundraising. Manly tears were shed.
