How IT PINOYs can help Japan

the massive 8.9 magnitude earthquake and tsunami (and now the nuke meltdown), which hit Japan last March11 caused major damage and lost of lives.

major I.T. companies such as Apple (iTunes), Google (Person Finder and Google Crisis), Facebook and Twitter have offered ways how to donate to Japan. even bloggers could help via a Hello Bar on their pages!

the Philippines is one of the many countries who immediately sent teams to assist with the medical, search and rescue efforts in Japan.
