Update - 03.16 I just wanted to thank all of you for your help. I hit my goal today, so now I have to bow out and leave things to the heavy hitters, like Eric Schmidt and Abenity.com, amongst others.

I’m sure by now you have all either read about and/or seen the situation in Japan. Unfortunately, the only way I know how to help right now is via donations, but instead of just going it alone, I thought I’d try to match donations to double the impact.

So, I’m willing to match any donations up to $500. I know it’s not a lot, but I figure every little bit helps.

I don’t know the best way to do this, but if you donate to something directly related to the efforts, just post the amount in a comment or send it to me via email, and I’ll match it via a Red Cross donation to the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami fund.

No need to send me a receipt or anything…I’m going off of the Kellogg Honor Code here.
