We woke up this morning to devastating images from Japan. As many of you know Japan was hit by an 8.9 earthquake that generated a major tsunami. Part of the country is devastated and the death toll is rising as I type these words. Our hearts and thoughts are with the people of Japan right now.
Fandom Fights Tsunami has started a site for Fanfic authors and readers from ALL fandoms (Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Twilight, etc…) If you’re an author or read FF go to their site. With proof of a 5$ donation to the Red Cross you will get a compilation of stories from a multitude of authors. You can visit their site here and follow them on twitter here.
Below you’ll find information on how you can help or links that will help you to try to find loved ones that are missing.
We will keep updating this post as we get more information in.
