Oh! Northeast Japan needs your help – and It Came From Japan, plus a roster of our celebrity mates, want to tell how you can pitch in.
You already know about the magnitude 9.0 megaquake and ensuing tsunami on 11 March, which wiped out many towns in Tohoku region in the Northeast of Japan and raised the menacing spectre of nuclear contamination from the Daiichi power plant in Fukushima.
Right now, the number of dead or missing human beings stands at over 20,000. Also, nearly half a million people are suffering right this very minute, with limited access to electricity, fuel, clothing, shelter and hope.
Here’s the good news: You can help, and it’s more fun than you think.
We’re putting together a special edition podcast packed with information on music-related fundraisers around the UK, US and Europe to dazzle your ears while benefitting those afflicted by the quake and tsunami, presented by our chum Iain Lee and ICFJ founder Daniel Robson. Plus! We’ll have special guest interviews and tunes that rock harder than a 10-metre wave.
In the meantime, may we suggest sending some money to the Red Cross?
