Information for Helping Those Affected by the Earthquakes in Japan
The largest earthquake to ever hit the country of Japan (and the 5th largest on record) happened on Friday 2:46pm local Japanese time. The entire country found itself crippled Friday by floods, power failures, fires, shuttered airports and paralyzed transit systems from an 8.9 earthquake that struck 80 miles off the Pacific coast, killing hundreds of people and setting off a massive tsunami.
Resulting Tsunami waves continue to cause damage to neighboring countries.
United States President Barack Obama recently had this to say; "Our hearts go out to our friends in Japan and across the region, and we're going to stand with them as they recover and rebuild from this tragedy,"
If there is anything you'd like to do to help support those suffering from this great tragedy, below you can find a few reputable organizations.
The entire Renderosity team will be thinking of those affected in the days and weeks to come. We hope that all our members in the affected areas are safe.

My heart goes out to those who were affected or suffered loss from this terrible event. There are several members here, and one or two may be on my friends list, who I have had occasion to work with or buy from. My thoughts and prayers are with them as well.
Thank you, Renderosity staffs. I am a RMP vendor living in Japan. I encountered this earthquake but I am safe now. And, aoaio and Youniss and LOCK-ON (they live in Japan) are safe, I confirmed by their blog & twitter. Now, many Japanese are guarding the second accident of this earthquake.
