Well said, Bob. For those in Canada wanting to donate, they can go to www.redcross.ca.

Hard to swallow that the few ways to donate online are all american based... but I donated anyway. Their plight is much more important than any pride from my part.

Is there a place where I can donate a specific amount? I have 6 bucks... I know it's not much, but it's all I have in my account, and I don't think I can get my family behind this...

I hear Nintendo has already donated 300 million Yen, which should be about 20 million dollars.

thank you for the link, moviebob. I greatly considered donating the moment I heard about it, but I didn't really know who I should be giving my money to. I've actually made some friends in Japan, but fortunately, I don't think any of them live in the Tohoku area (some people I know who are around Tokyo felt quite the aftershocks, but otherwise, they were alright). Nonetheless, I hope my $50 ends up being well-spent.

Don and done. Thanks Bob, didn't even think about it til now. The absolute severity of the situation and forest for the trees and all of it.

I am not sure how it works but Itunes has it set up to make donations through them.

Good on ya, Bob. Good on ya.

Clayton said...

btw, even if you CAN'T give money due to financial issues there are ways to help:

I really appreciate you doing this Bob. I just got back from living for a long time in Akita City, Japan last August, and I've been really pushing my friends, family, and acquaintances to not only support Japan through prayer and their consideration, but through the much more tangible route of donation. I've been linking people to the Red Cross, and I'd like to remind everyone that they can also instantly donate $10 by texting REDCROSS to 90999 if you live in the US. I'm not Japanese, but I'd like to say this because not only are you supporting the nation of Japan through your voice, you are also supporting the many friends and loved ones I have who are currently dealing with this crisis, many of whom were from Sendai and other areas hit worst by this tragedy.

ボブさん、あなたの心は本当に優しいですね。今、日本が痛いけど、ボブさんと他の手伝っている人ですから、日本は元気になってできますと思いますよ。

本当に、ありがとうございます~

I'll save you the translation.

[Bob, you really have a kind heart don't you? Right now Japan is hurt but thanks to Bob and everyone else helping out, I believe Japan can become well again.

Truly, thank you very much~]

Hey bob can you tells us your opinion about sonic the hedgehog and discuss whether theyre finally getting it right or not? Me personally I'd say yeah even before the new sonic games of 2010.

(2008's Sonic unleashed on the 360/ps3 to be exact, don't count the wii cause it didn't have the hedgehog engine)

I'd love to hear your viewpoints or if you don't wanna waste an episode on it could you write it in a blog/ forum?

The Playstation Network has set up a donation system, wher you can donate 2, 10, 25, and 50 dollars to the Red Cross as well.
