GL for Japan

 

 

Just one week ago, the country was devastated by an earthquake and tsunami. Here in sunny Baltimore, we’re far away from the ongoing tragedy, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t feeling the aftershocks. The images—and the stories—continue to pour in.

 

You’ve told us about your family members and friends in Japan. Contributing writer Alyssa B. has a brother there who’s currently teaching English. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was affected by the disaster, and we’re  doing what we can to provide relief.

 

Founding Editor Karen B. donated money on iTunes. Fashion Assistant Jessica D. texted her donation to the Red Cross. Senior Editor Katie A. bought a LivingSocial deal that matched her donation. Advertising Assistant Mary M. is buying a GroupOn donation. Associate Editor Trish M. is shopping on Forever21.com right now—100 percent of her purchase will go to relief.

 

All week, we’ve been providing you with ways to help. Here they are once again:
