Just a quick update: Tonight, Anime & Manga Bloggers For Japan reached $4000 in donations benefiting Doctors Without Borders and Shelter Box. Both organizations are currently active in Northern Japan, providing as much care and help they can give to the tsunami and quake survivors.
When I started this fundraiser a little over a week ago, I certainly thought it was going to be MUCH harder to get $2000, the original goal, than this. It makes me so happy that we were able to come together as a community and help out the country that has brought us together on the other side of the world.
But it’s not just about the money. Putting the banners on our blogs shows that we care, even though we can’t physically be there to help. Everyone who has posted a banner and/or a blog post, retweeted for the cause or just spread the word to their friends has done something to help.
And for that help I say, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

All the best,
