It seems every month a natural disaster hits the world somewhere. This one is particularly hideous. An enormous earthquake off shore in Japan caused a devastating tsunami in the northern part of the country. So far the death toll is around 7000 people not including over 10,000 people missing and with 400,000 people homeless it’s absolutely devastating.
This is the third time I have asked my readers to help people in need after the floods in Queensland and the Quake in New Zealand but never has it been more needed than right now. I hate to keep asking but the it’s so awful and having recently been to Japan too it especially hurts. Such a wonderful country with incredible people…
In the past I have asked people like Rode and Kessler Crane to donate gear for a fundraising giveaway. I haven’t asked them yet and I hate to ask them for a third time. So for now I am giving away my pristine ipad 64gb 3g. It’s not the version 2 but the original one but it’s still awesome and in perfect condition. I will send it anywhere in the world. If you have something you want to add to the fundraising give-away please let me know.
EDIT: BRUCE SHARPE FROM SINGULAR SOFTWARE IS GIVING AWAY A LICENSE TO ANY OF THEIR PRODUCTS. THANKS BRUCE.

Simply donate to any of the below sites or any one that is raising money and send an email to this address with a copy of your receipt and I will do a live draw around NAB time. Of course you don’t have to enter the fundraising draw. Just simply donate, that is the most important part, if you can manage at least $20 that would be incredible! I am sure you don’t need an incentive to help these people but fundraising draws are a great way to raise funds.
Please watch Dan Chung’s heartbreaking video from there…
