2:46 Quakebook


TOKYO (majirox news)- #Quakebook is a crowd sourced book that started with a single phone call for help on Twitter. People were seeking contributors to create a book to raise funds for Red Cross Japan, who are helping the victims of the earthquake and subsequent devastating tsunami that struck Japan at 2:46 p.m. on March 11.

This project was led by @OurManInAbiko on Twitter and in only two weeks he has amassed 30,000 words. It is a collection of pictures and stories of those affected by the earthquake. They share their stories and all proceeds help support the efforts of Red Cross Japan, who have been on the ground helping since day one.

The response for #Quakebook has been nothing short of sensational. Word quickly spread by Twitter and tweeted by Yoko Ono.

There are many ways to assist on the ground in Japan and this is a pretty good one. If you have the skills you can make #quakebook a success — volunteer HERE.

Please help promote the efforts of this noble cause; buy the book, promote it, tweet it, review it, blog it, link to it or give it as a gift.

Quakebook will be on sale soon. Check HERE for the latest status.
