Help The Victims of the Japanese Earthquake

As you have probably heard, around 2:46PM in Japan on March 11th an 8.9 Magnitude earthquake struck near the coast of Honshu, Japan, which triggered a widespread Tsunami warning all along the Pacific Ocean Coastline, displacing and killing many people, and flooding the land in Japan with Tsunamis. We at XDA don’t normally get involved in such situations but we feel the need to support the victims of this tragedy in any way possible. Here are few resources you can utilize to learn more:

Although we are not affiliated with any charities or relief organizations, we stress the importance of supporting the victims in Japan and helping in any way possible. If you feel inclined to donate to a relief organization in order to help this effort, you can use one of the few below that we have listed or any one of your choice.

All the victims will be in our minds and hearts,
