Donate for JAPAN



No expect domestic fundraising in China, I do it myself.

During the 5.12 Wenchuan earthquake, the state and enterprises launched a large number of fundraising and forcing donations. I didn't donate a penny.
The reason is that the using of these donations is not transparent. I can't believe that these funds will not be corrupted--don't tell me that it's good that even 10% funds reach the disaster area and you can donate, that 's you-- but I chose something more meaningful.

Now 3.11 Japan earthquake, no government or organization has asked me to donate, but I want to make this step.
There is a Chinese proverb that "when you drink water, don't forget the person who digs the well." Many items in my life are made in Japan, and they give me a lot of convenience. Japan has given us so much help, and we should help them within our ability.

I trust Google the most. There is already a donation section on Google's special topic page.
However, when I started to choose a location, there was no that country in the list of more than one hundred regions that could be paid by Google. Is this a shame for that country...



Go to the Japan Red Cross site and it is hard to access due to the earthquake. Search for donate with 0 results. A donation page was found with the help of a Japanese-speaking friend. But it said that the account is being opened and preparing, please wait.

Update: It seems that it is possible to register Google checkout with Hong Kong instead of that country, I still want to wait for the news of the Japan Red Cross.

Update2: The Japan Red Cross published its account number, but there is no option for Paypal payment. I signed up for Google checkout to complete the donation.



心から日本の皆様のご無事を祈っております。絶対負けないから、がんばってください。
日本の人々は、強さをお願いして!



==============================================================

Finally, reproduced an article here written by a netizen Jovi in the evening of the 11th.

He compared the views and behaviors of that contry and Japan on earthquake. This article has a lot of irony, however it is what it is.



Japan earthquake.
Japan's NHK keeps broadcasting, aftershock forecast, tsunami warning, and casualties. It was broadcast live in a building where the aftershocks continued to shake violently, and everything was falling down.

That contry earthquake.
The TV station kept broadcasting, the leader attached great importance and came to the scene in person. This earthquake really really happened just once in a century. Love is boundless, everyone works together to rebuild homes, disaster exercise our country...

Japan earthquake.
Japan's Suntory Corporation announced that all Suntory's vending machines can get water or food for free with the touch of a button. Immediate response from other companies.

That contry earthquake.
Company A donated 100 million, Group B donated 200 million, and C Co., Ltd. donated 300 million. Where is the money finally went to?

Japan earthquake.
Naoto Kan announced that all supermarkets and large stores have become temporary shelters. All water, food, and daily necessities in the supermarket can be taken free of charge, all costs are borne by the Japan government.

That contry earthquake.
The Prime Minister came to the disaster area and said to everyone: I am late.

Japan earthquake.
The original magnitude was 8.9 on the Richter scale. After several hours of correction, it changed to 8.8.

That contry earthquake.
The original magnitude was 7.8 on the Richter scale. After several weeks of correction, it was changed to 8.

Japan earthquake.
A magnitude 8.8 earthquake killed 300 people.

That contry earthquake.
A magnitude 8.0 earthquake killed 100,000 people by official statistics.

Japan earthquake.
Take refuge in a supermarket for up to 10 hours. After eating, drinking, and sleeping, everyone started to leave the supermarket without any garbage, just like nobody had ever stayed. The Japanese are really perverted!

No earthquake in that country.
After a big event it was the same as the earthquake.

Japan earthquake.
The ruling party's public self-criticism did not do a good job of forecasting, did not do a good first response, and the rescue work was not implemented quickly enough.

That contry earthquake.
We are united to rebuild our homes. "Because the terrain is dangerous, it is very difficult to implement the rescue." Put it 10 times a day. "The army has all worked hard to put in rescue work, and it is intensive and orderly." Put it 100 times a day.

Japan earthquake.
HNK's live broadcast of all disasters and news and forecasts, other TV stations are as usual. But everyone still cares about the disaster for 24 hours.

That contry earthquake.
The function of the TVs disappeared for hours. One channel appears on all TVs. The ratings are 100%.

Japan earthquake.
That country's largest television station is still broadcasting their large political conferences, inter cuttng the earthquake in Japan. Only one TV station can broadcast the situation in Japan through the live broadcast of foreign countries and the reporters who are connected in Japan.

That contry earthquake.
Japan television stations have 24-hour subtitles scrolling the disaster situation and current assistance. NHK live broadcast of the disaster.

That contry earthquake.
Donation boxes are available on all streets, 24-hour stores, public washrooms, and vending machines in Japan. When my friend was shopping in Lawson, he saw every Japanese throw money in. The Japanese government requires the rescue team to set out asap,  waiting for that country to say yes! So all rescue teams stood by at Narita Airport all night. The Japan Liberal Democratic Party rented planes at its own expense to deliver supplies to Chengdu. When the Japanese rescue team dug up the body in Beichuan, someone kneeled in front of the body and wept for their powerless. All the members mourned for 3 minutes in silence.

Japan earthquake.
A forum from that country posted a "celebration of the Japan earthquake", a total of 8480000 replies were sent. What a strong and united nation!


==============================================================

In addition, there are some comments under this article originally, many people are attacking, asking me why I donate to Japan. I replied a few comments before giving up the argument. Unfortunately, this is the voice and attitude of most people on the Chinese Internet. That's one of the reasons I moved my blog.

Comments

  1. 日本地震死伤人数少,看过一些资料主要是由于他们属于多震国家,对于房屋建筑的防震有着丰富的经验.中国发生地震的地方多是农村山区,我查了一些相关资料;
    都江堰市、彭州市、崇州市、旌阳区、广汉市、什邡市、绵竹市、中江县、罗江县、江油市、三台县、安县、梓潼县、盐亭县、平武县、北川县、涪城区、游仙区、青川县、雨城区、名山县、荥经县、汉源县、石棉县、天全县、芦山县、宝兴县、马尔康县、金川县、小金县、阿坝县、若尔盖县、红原县、壤塘县、汶川县、理县、茂县、松潘县、九寨沟县、黑水县。共40个。(按县算的)
    想象一下西部的农村条件可想而知.

    排除其他一切,我觉得中国有些企业也不错的.比如通讯公司会自动给充话费等,汶川地震有6成来自中国民企,我想这也能说明一些问题.中国当时地震多是农村山区,很难有像超市或者自动售货机这些东西.因此这里面有些对比我还是不敢认同的.

    制度的问题我们个人确实无能为力.但是我并不认同这篇文章的部分观点.因为文章的有些东西只是拿了我们最丑陋的一面与别人去相提并论,很明显是不客观的.

    至于我D的一些东西我就不想评论了.那也是我shitizen无法参与的.

  2. @老周 恩,我和作者Jovi都偏右,不過我看文章說的是事實,並且贊同。
    我有一個政治覺悟極高、一顆紅心向D的朋友。我們倆天天探討,但誰也說服不了誰。那真叫一大樂事,呵呵。

  3. 其实就震后救援方面,我只有两点极不爽,一是刻意隐瞒,二是借灾褒扬。中国灾难中也不乏那些真诚之人,文明之事的,只是没人去让他们展现在眼前罢了,而且我也不愿意他们被展现,因为那样又成了某AV的工具而已。

  7. @老时
    话是如此,生活中,政治什么的是浮云,但在大事面前,政治是一个非常重要的因素。

  8. 其实这种讽刺的口吻我很不喜欢,像“某国地震了,某国的XXX不停的播报,领导非常重视亲临现场,此次地震真的真的是百年一遇,大爱无疆,众志成城,重建家园。多难兴邦。”这些有何不好,难道想我们都垂头丧气,悲哀到极点去救灾?生在“某国”,就算有很大意见,也不能拿这种口吻和方式去贬低自己国家。请热爱我们这个还不太完美的国家吧。

  14. @老周 那需要到http://www.wumii.com/site/setting.htm設置與你連接的網站。

    ReplyDelete
  15. 我通过Paypal捐了25刀,Google那个途径我是后来才看见的。

    ReplyDelete
  16. 补记:你公开发这类文章,我很佩服,换了自己大概做不到。

  17. @Tealun Du
    这个观点我有点不太赞同,并不是非有在大是大非面前才能体现出来。

    好比今天又涨了油价……在天朝诸如这些看似生活中的事情,政治可就不是浮云了,你懂的。

  24. @剑书 我也是用的这种方式。HOHO。
    不知道怎么用PAYPAL的国际账户,我个人没有信用卡,貌似是开不了?想买个黑莓应用程序,没法买,没有可以付刀的paypal账户。

    ReplyDelete
  25. @剑书
    油价不是小事,我所说的小事可能就是一些无关痛痒的生活之琐碎,我们且不要将VelanLee的这方寸之地太多讨论这些敏感之言吧?有空Gtalk上聊咯。呵呵。

    ReplyDelete
  26. @剑书 感謝建議,我有空就把這個替換下。另外Tealun老兄可以找我幫忙。
