Donated :)



Sig thanks to Saber! :D 

BTW, whats up with folks on here trying to talk people out of donating money to the Red Cross?  The Red Cross spreads this money around, and it will go to mnay big causes.  I am confused by folks on here whining about "double standards" as the outpouring of support for Haiti was mindblowing.  If anything people acted like jerks when Pakistan had that big earthquake due to folks not wanting to help a "terrorist country".  I fyou don't supoort the cause - be quiet, there are folks that want to. 



This should still be on off topic..  No matter how much you think it is relevant considering it just happened.  This isn't gaming news this is off topic subject.  This should have stayed in off topic.

Who really cares?? To think you are really helping a cause by donating 10 dollars through a bs text message is (how would you say it... mind blowing)...  If you really want to make a difference do it on a local level.  Shit countries will always be shit countries.  Donating 10 dollars to Haiti for relief effort really didn't do shit.  Haiti is still Haiti (which means it is shit).  I won't even go into the whole relief effort (money raised to money spent helping) bullshit.   If you want to make a difference then you do it yourself because giving some organization 10 dollars and thinking everything is hunky dory after that is pure living in bliss.

did Haiti rape your dog or something?...chill dude! 



New Orleanians watching the dramatic images from Japan's tsunami cannot help but feel deep sympathy for the thousands of people affected by the disaster.

Shores are submerged in Natori city, Miyagi prefecture (state), Japan, after a ferocious tsunami slammed Japan's eastern coasts Friday.

Much of the damage caused by the massive waves is eerily similar to Katrina's aftermath: Homes washed off their foundations. Cars piled on top of houses. Large fishing boats carried inland as if they were children's toys and deposited on highways.

New York Times columnist Nick Kristof, who covered the 1995 Kobe earthquake, writes that the Japanese are a particularly resilient and stoic people.

They are also a generous people. After Katrina, the Japanese government offered material and monetary assistance that surpassed $1 million and that included tents, blankets, power generators and portable water tanks. Japan also provided $200,000 to the American Red Cross to aid hurricane victims. In addition, Takashi Endo, a private businessman in Japan, donated $1 million from his personal funds to Katrina relief efforts.

Most metro New Orleans residents appreciate the help we received from the Japanese then. Now they need our help. Here's what you can do:

LOL - Japan's red cross will provide money to the japanese victims only if you specifically ask for that. Otherwise they will indeed provide it to countries who need it more (illustrating my point btw).

As for Haiti - you're saying that now it's done ? pffff

@Stehnintendo : Haiti went from bad to hell. The fact that from your point of view it remains the same -from shit to shit - only indicates how poorly educated you are.
