Helping Japan

We're relieved -- relieved, that our colleagues at Jimdo in Japan are okay. We've heard from every single one that we don't have to worry about them.


But we're really saddened and shaken by the messages they're sending us -- in addition to the devastation we're seeing and reading about in the news.


Here's an excerpt from an email Teppei Takahata, head of the Jimdo team in Japan, wrote us:


"I don't know how media outside of Japan is reporting our situation. The serious damage occurred in the northern part of Japan, about 350 km away from Tokyo. It's estimated over 1,800 have died and there are thousands of disappearances, still increasing day by day. We cannot go there and I guess it will take about 10 years to rebuild...”


We asked our Japanese Jimdo coworkers how we could best help them. They suggested that we help could help the Red Cross collect donations with a campaign. The entire Jimdo team (all around the world) is supporting the campaign for helping Japan, and we would be really happy if you joined us in helping Japan get back on its feet.

Your donation will be sent to the Japanese Red Cross, since they are in the best position to know where funds are needed most.

The Jimdo team has chipped in, and we hope you will help however you can as well. Click the banner below to donate to help Japan...

    Aunque nos encontramos en la República Dominicana la distancia no es un obstáculo para enviar palabra de esperanza a Japón nos unimos en oración por los damnificados de esa nación ,porque para DIOS no hay distancia

    Con il cuore siamo accanto al popolo del Giappone,con la ragione comprendiamo che la natura non soggiacerà mai alle errate equazioni della scienza,nè alla volontà di onnipotenza dell'uomo!Un infinito abbraccio a
    uomini,donne,vecchi e bambini di quella terra che ci sembrava così lontana
    ma che oggi ci accorgiamo essere parte di noi!Roberto

    Service to Humanity is the best work of life. The way all the countries shows their support to Japan is amazing and proves that humanity still live. The way initiated by Jimdo is by heart supported. Jc.S.Murali

    Ich liebe Japan einfach und war so geschockt und traurig, als ich von der Sache mit Fukushima gehört habe...
    Ich hoffe einfach nur, dass es nicht noch schlimmer wird.
    Ich fühle mit den Leuten...♥

    You can also design a cheerful flag for Japan to support them.
    Please see Ganbatte Nippon here:
    Support them morally and monetarily :)

    Please visit Japan! (Friday, 15 April 2011 03:48)

    Thanks JIMDO team! We are in Japan and feeling very sad about foreign media telling lies to thrill people and/or offend us victims. That hurts us deeply as we are still feeling for the affected people and trying hard to get back to zero. We are having a normal life with nice water, food, air and everything else (including data sources everywhere).. + beautiful cherry blossoms!
