The staff here at Indie Nation, just as almost every one else, as stunned and moved by the magnitude of assistance Japan will need to recover from the recent tsunami.
We are also aware that there already are many scamers attempting to take advantage of sympathetic hearts. We suggest that you donate 10 dollars to the Red Cross by texting 90999.
There is also a page at the American Red Cross web site where you can donate. Kudos to George Takei for the tweet with an even better link that lets you earmark your donation by selecting from specific needs around the world.
Also, to all of you Tweeps out there, help let even more people know about this by retweeting George Takei (aka Sulu) who had 91 retweets at the time of this post.
