If the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan has you feeling helpless, turn to Mashable. The site rounds up seven ways you can do something—even if you’re broke:
- Like a page: For each person that “likes” the “Dog Bless You” Facebook page for search and rescue dogs, Explore.org will donate $1.
- Use Twitter hashtags: Hashtags to tweet or follow include #Jishin for general information, #Anpi to confirm the safety of people or places, #Hinan for evacuation info, and #311care for medical care info.
- Buy digital crops: Purchase virtual goods in Zynga games—radishes in FarmVille, sweet potatoes in CityVille, or kobe cows in FrontierVille—and 100% of the proceeds will go to Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake Tsunami Emergency Fund.
- Just plain donate: You can text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10, or donate more via the Red Cross’s Facebook Causes campaign—you can even donate via iTunes.
