I don't need to say much more than this, but we've all seen the devastation in Japan. On a personal note, two friends of mine live in Japan teaching English.

Like Haiti before it, Japan will need time (and support) to recover from this ongoing crisis.
But, as always, the awesome writing community steps up. Here are some of the ways they are raising money for Japan.
