Benefit for Japan

Is it just me, or is the shit hitting the fan more and more frequently lately? The latest fan was firmly situated over Japan and once we stopped freaking out about whether or not the island would just fall into the ocean, a bunch of people got together to try to help out. This is what we came up with:

Loads of people are getting together to raise money for AmeriCares and Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support. Seriously, people's generosity has been overwhelming. From graphic designers working on the fliers and buttons to restaurants and caterers donating food, not to mention local musicians and DJs playing the show and so many businesses contributing raffle prizes, people's dedication to helping the human and non-human animals impacted by the disaster is just amazing.
