[mod] re:earthquake & tsunami

My apologies for the late post, I left on vacation the day it happened and I haven't had a chance to do anything until now!

By now I'm sure you've all heard about the 8,9 earthquake and the ensuing tsunami in Japan and other countries in the vicinity. It is an absolute tragedy and I hope that anyone living there is safe, and that everyone who has friends or family living there (as I myself do) has heard word from them that they are well.

The amount of options to donate or help out is absolutely staggering right now, and it's lovely that everyone is so eager to help! But at the same time, please remember that this is a NEWS community and that some posts are bordering on irrelevant. I will be deleting posts that are considered such sometime later today.

I'll be making a masterpost later with a bunch of links on where you can help out or donate (I have to leave again soon, sorry!) but for now please refrain from posting those kinds of links unless they are explicitly connected to NEWS themself. I'm sure to miss stuff, so if you've got a link you'd like to show off, please either PM it to me or send it to the mod email at news.jpop @ gmail.com .

Thank you very much, everyone!

Also, taking a moment to self-pimp: I have a thread here at iconning for japan; I'm offering icons and layouts!
