Thank you guys, our donation has just been completed!

It ends up with ¥91,894 JPY, I am amazed that we collected such huge amount of money. I am sure this money will help my friends studying in Tohoku region.

There are some of my friends in Tohoku, who I still cannot contact with, but I won't lose hope until it's sure whether they are alive or not.
Groupon Japan has a maximum limit for donation, ¥10,000 JPY for one account. Therefore, I changed the plan and donated Red Cross Japan directly. I sent ¥92,000 JPY to red cross in total.

I sent an e-mail with receipt picture to the people who donated. Please check your e-mail account which you used for this donation.

This donation is finished because the donation page I made is not really convenient to use. There are many other good donation pages now, so if you still want to donate more, please use these below.

WASABI Japanese cultural exchange club at Sydney university is also organising many fundraising events in the following weeks.
We hope we'll be able to help the many people in need in Japan.
Our first proper fundraiser will be a BBQ on Monday from 12-2pm so any people in Sydney who is free please drop by! We are in a relatively easy to find position, situated in front of the Chemistry Building on Eastern Avenue.

BBQ is $4 (for sausage+drink) we will also have donation boxes around! よろしくお願い致します 

Please take care!

Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!

thanks for reading! :D

I should've updated about the BBQ too!
We raised in excess of $4000 Australian dollars in 2 hours~
Also had an additional film screening fundraiser.

It's always very heartwarming to hear about how others are trying to help those in need~
Hopefully Wasabi and University of Sydney will be able to continue to help as much as we can~

Cheers and please spread the word~
Even if people cannot donate, just posting a few words of encouragement will help those affected!
