Meaningful gestures for Japan.

Okay, apparently today is a day of blogging silence for Japan. While I understand that this is supposed to be meaningful, I hate things like this. It's like that stupid "what color is you bra" thing that was on Facebook. I got duped into that not even knowing what I was doing. Did you guys know that was supposed to be to raise awareness for breast cancer? I didn't. Also similar to Bono's (Product)Red Campaign, in which (don't quote me folks) companies spent more money on their marketing than what was actually raised for the cause. Just think how beneficial it would have been if those companies had just donated the money spent on their marketing to the cause itself. Why do people have to make some grand gesture, or show off that they supported something with a tshirt? I don't get it. 

So here's what I'm saying so no one misunderstands....

I'm not gonna be silent for Japan. I'm going to donate money. And to everyone who reads this, I'm asking you to donate money too. Especially YOU, you silent bloggers! you can donate

Take your pick! or find a cause that's super important to you. Clearly mine is animals, but if you are worried about diabetics, children, schools, or whatever, just do a quick google search!
