Japan relief effort: How to help from your couch



It’s going to take a long time for Japan to dig out of the devastation caused the largest earthquake its ever experienced.

ictQatar has compiled a great list of ways you can help in the relief effort, including:

Donating through Facebook, buying virtual goods in one of Zynga’s many wildly popular games, donating through iTunes, installing a free “Hello Bar” on your website or blog with simple code, and “liking” a certain page with the organization donating $1 for each like.

Google is also working to support recovery efforts, creating a webpage that allows people to donate directly to relief efforts (via the Japanese Red Cross Society), find the latest recovery information, and also access a database and message board to try to help locate loved ones.

So stay on your couch, if need be. Just get to clicking!
