Several different cartoon related projects have sprung up to support the relief efforts in Japan.
Comics for Japan is asking cartoonists to create cartoons showing their characters donating to the relief efforts and asking them to publicize ways for their readers to donate. You can check out their site to see who is already involved.
Japan Needs Heroes is looking to create a book showcasing different cartoonists work to help raise funds for relief efforts.
I posted the American Red Cross link the other day. I did hear of someone in the U.S. trying to donate to the Japanese Red Cross, only to get hit with Exchange Rate fees from his credit card company. I don’t know if that is the case everywhere but it might be easiest to donate where they use your own currency. Peter from Wombania, helped get me started on some of them.
Very cool, Bearman.
I didn’t do anything.
This is some good info. I may work on something for ‘Comics For Japan’.
Hank needs to do something to redeem himself every once in a while.
Yes, if you’re donating to the Red Cross, you’re probably best off donating to the branch in your own country. You can still donate funds directly to the Japanese relief effort.
Interesting – I would have never thought of cartoons in the relief effort. Good to know.
When I saw the title in my blogroll I thought you might have found this Japanese cartoon video explaining the nuclear problem going on.
I know it’s a very serious situation but this clip is kinda strange and apparently was done by a Japanese artist. Here’s the link.
Actually for kids that probably explains it well.
Ha, I nicked this vid from the neatorama site, already 😆
You look good in knickkers.
You get my nomination for wonderful guy!
Awww…thanks. Is there a prize?? haha
I will send Super Broccoli Man to help!!!
Just make sure he helps someone who actually needs it this time.
I’ll give him specific instructions but don’t know if he’ll comprehend them because the horrific microwave accident left him a vegetable
Well at least he has a radiation shield.
He’s on his way 1st thing Monday morning.I’m sure he’ll be able to make a difference…
Umm…. those links you’ve posted for other countries to donate…. they ALL go through to the american site
It’s a conspiracy I have with the US Credit Card companies. Something must have gone screwy when I bulleted the list.
Fixed now…at least I know you actually click on my links. All these other losers would have let me keep a stupid link up there.
We like to let others see you in your true light.
You were the kid who wouldn’t tell a buddy his fly was down either.
I hope Bearman isn’t Nigerian?
I didn’t use any of those Red Cross links, I used the Comics for Japan link & donated through the Second Harvest Japan one. Sorry I contributed towards letting you leave a stupid link up there
haha…No problem. I am sure all the organizations can benefit.
This is cool, I wish I had time to do something for the cause.
Just throw up a link or make mention of it in your site. I am sure they would appreciate that.
Sandra Bullock deserves a big up !
Big up indeed.
Wow, thats a big donation.
Good one, bear. I wish I could draw or Denny would do his own cartoon.
Denny can draw. Draw a crowd.
Great info, thanks!
It’s incomprehensible how much they have gone through…
Moreso than a backed up sewer.
Sure…say that when they aren’t mine..haha j/k
