i don’t quite know if anyone really reads this blog, but if i have any readers… i think i should do my part regarding all these insane natural disasters occurring lately :\

as you all know, the earthquake + tsunami in japan and its after-effects are fucking crazy, i don’t need to say what the news has said so many times. it was so spine chilling even for people overseas, i was super worried about my friends over there (who are thankfully, both unharmed! ^^~). i am especially to hear about it because the cities are beautiful and the people were very helpful and polite when i was just there late last year… you never think these things will happen ><

even if you have no money to donate, a good way to help is to SHARE INFORMATION over the internet. it’s free and only takes a little bit of your time, so here are a few links.

Reported Safe
GOOGLE PERSON FINDER
to those worrying about their idols/bands/etc, KEEP CALM!
celebrities confirmed safe
bands reported safe
lolita artists/designers/models/etc
anime/game/manga people reported safe
i don’t think there is a list for models or others not under the category, but as far as i know, gyaru model Tsubasa Masukawa is alive and tweeting and Satoshi Tajiri (Pokemon) is NOT DEAD, don’t believe the rumors… He simply fainted but is A-OK and has posted on Facebook since then.
