How money was raised for Japan

On the 11th March, Japan was struck by the most powerful eathquake the country has ever had.

At an 8.9 magnitude, followed by a tsunami that has wrecked homes and lives,  the enormous disaster saw the whole world praying for Japan.

Unlike a lot of blogs and news sites at the moment, I am not going to be talking about the actual disaster, and how it has affected people living in Japan, because im sure everyone is already aware. What I do want to talk about, is how people around the world have come together in their own ways to help out people they have never met, for no other reasons but to save peoples lives.

I have seen many ways in which people have helped out, all different, but however big or small there help was, it was given, it really mattered. Millions of people have donated online to sites such as The Red Cross , or Global Giving,

 but there have been more interesting ways people have donated, such as;

Overall I think it’s lovely to see how people put in so much effort to raise awareness and raise money for people they have never met before.
It actually gives me more faith in the world!
