As I hope most of you aware, on Friday 11th 2011, an earthquake happened off the coast of Japan, causing a tsunami. It is estimated that there about 10,000 people dead, or missing. Evacuation shelters are currently experiencing shortages of water, food and other survival necessities. 
As a Canadian, I'm urging fellow Canadians to do what they can to help. If you're a Spring Cleaning follower that is from out of Canada, I urge you to Google what you can do to help. 
Here is what I intend on doing, and here is what you other Canadians can do:
"Canadian aid groups are accepting donations via text message for relief efforts in Japan.
Making a micro-donation to help the response to the massive earthquake and tsunami is as simple as pulling out your mobile phone and doing the following:
• Texting “ASIA” to 30333 to donate $5 to the Canadian Red Cross.
• Texting “QUAKE” to 45678 to donate $10 to the Salvation Army.
• Texting “GIVE” to 45678 to donate $5 to the UNICEF.
According to the Mobile Giving Foundation Canada, this service is available to Bell, Fido, Koodo, Rogers, Telus, Solo, and Virgin Mobile customers.
To make your donation count, you must reply to a confirmation message.
Donations show up as one-time charges on your next cellphone bill." 

Do what you can. Sacrifice 5 dollars that you might spend on a luxury. It's worth it.
