By now we all know what has happened in Japan since March 11th, 2011. Some of us here at BentoLunch.org live in Japan and are directly experiencing the effects. But we thank our lucky stars that we still have our homes and family, unlike so many people in the northern part of the country. We are also grateful that the bento community has taken an active part in raising money for earthquake/tsunami relief funds. One notable effort is Bento4Japan, through raffles and eBay auctions.
You can also contribute directly to the American Red Cross by going to redcross.org. For people on a US cell phone carrier, you can instantly donate $10 by texting REDCROSS to 90999 and the amount will be applied to your next cell phone bill.
