I trust the bitcoin community, I can deposit the money first, provide the bank transfer slip before accepting the bitcoin.

And we can work out an exchange rate were the community is comfortable with.


Apart from Japanese Red Cross, there are some other funds such as Yahoo Japan 緊急災害募金 Emergency Disaster funds.
http://bokin.yahoo.co.jp/donation/detail/1630001/index.html

But their are also donating to the Japanese Red Cross. So a direct deposit to the Japanese Red Cross seems to be the most reliable and convenient and "to the point".

Donation to the Japanese Red Cross can be as quickly as a consensus is reached here.

This is a very good proposal. I am all for it.
Let's continue to call for donations until Wednesday and then proceed.

This picture makes me mad. I hope this isn't a common sentiment in America.

Don't worry.  The Japanese will remember our soldiers helping them out and not remember that crap fabrication.

I'm going to go with this as well. Sounds like the best idea so far.

1. We call out deadline for the first donation wave until 12:00 GMT on Wednesday, March 16


If we are going to donate to Japanese Red Cross...below is a rough timetable.

"GMT March 16, Wed 12:00 noon" is Japan time "March 16 , 21;00" , because Japan is GMT +9.

It might take at least a day or two to agree on donation method and exchange rate and so forth. Then it will be weekend.

Japan is now under black out rotation to save electricity, so many shops including the post office may only open a few hours a day. And there could be long lines.

So, please allow a few days to deposit the money.

If there is more interest afterwards, we can run a second round of donations, but I prefer we make a big call to the entire bitcoin community to donate as much as possible for the 1st round until Wednesday, 16th and then we close it.

I prefer to make one call too. People run out of attention and interests very quickly. There could be other new big news a couple of weeks later, people might not be interested or so keen on donating anymore. If we have a second, we might only get a few BTC.

However, the Japanese Red Cross do accept donation from 100Yen , that is about US$1 . So, I guess as long as it is over 1.3 BTC, we can still donate to the Japanese Red Cross.

As far as I am concerned, I'd call it "DEAL".

I will transfer the BTC immediately once you have done the steps that you outlined above.

OK, i guess it is the closing time for the first round.

May I suggest the exchange rate as follow:

Bitcoin -> USD (MtGOX bid+Ask /2 ) -> JPY

1 BTC = MtGox (0.85+0.86) /2 = 0.855 USD = 0.855 x 79 JPY = 67.54500 JPY

250 BTC = 250 x 67.54500 = 16 886

By the way, how much exactly do we have right now?

The Yen has been climbing since the earthquake. I hope it doesn't get any stronger !!   Undecided

The donation can be made in the post office or the Post Bank (basically the same thing).

They ask for Name, Address & telephone to put into the donation form.

I will try to put the following information. However, sometimes, the Japanese are not very flexible. They might insist on real street address.

Name : bitcoin or bitcoin.org or bitcoin community (Which one would you prefer Huh)
Address: bitcoin.org
Tel: not sure, do bitcoin have a phone number ??


If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

Depends on the responses here. Maybe we could make the donation before the weekend.

The nuclear plant trouble seems to be getting worse.

If anything worse happens, commerce in Tokyo may be affected even worse.

So, i will try to make the donation as soon as possible.

The donation was made a few hours ago.

Unfortunately the exchange rate for both bitcoin and JPY have been very volatile.

If I use Mt.Gox rate at this very moment:

319.67 x (0.795+0.8325)/2 x 79 = 20 550 Yen

Anyway, the donation made was 21000 Yen.

This is the info about how to make a donation in Japanese Red Cross website: http://www.jrc.or.jp/contribution/l3/Vcms3_00002069.html

This is the receipt (in Japanese).
https://doc-08-74-docs.googleusercontent.com/docs/secure/ha0ro937gcuc7l7deffksulhg5h7mbp1/vrgf3vggnem9g8o4cqvom2phmmhnffc0/1300449600000/15949510141229870193/*/0B5QHyyV_GD85ZGEzY2ZmMTEtZjE0ZS00YTZkLWFlMGItMWI1ZjRlMjkzMDEw?authkey=CPfC5_UB&e=download

The left side is a photo copy (that's why it is in black and white), which the post office keeps. The right side is the stub receipt.

You can see the bank account number is 00140-8-507, the amount in Yen is 21000, and the organization is 日本赤十字社 東北関東大震災義援金 (The Japanese Red Cross Society Earthquake Donation).

Actually they have a small stack form with the everything filled out ready for people to come and donate.

You can see the date is 23-3-18 (Year-Month-Day). The year "23" is Japanese year. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heisei_period )

So, what can you buy for 21000 Yen?

For a regular meal in a family restaurant, you can get a meal for about 1000 yen.

21000 = 1000 x 21 meals

In Japan, there are convenient stores that sell cheap stuff for 100Yen.

You can buy a rice ball for 100 Yen (http://www.su-gomori.com/archives/images/14_onigiri_100en.jpg).
You can buy one 1L bottle of cold Japanese tea for 100 Yen

21000 = 100 x 210 Rice balls
or
21000 = 100 x 210 bottles of 1L cold Japanese tea

By the way, even in Tokyo city center, the racks in all supermarkets and convenient stores for rice balls and bread or other instant foods are empty. Someone just told me that even junk foods such as potato chips are gone.

There are still many people in the disaster areas that need help. It is snowing in the disaster areas, and they have little food, and no electricity therefore no heat. Even blankets are in short supply for many of them.

International news are all focusing on the nuclear power plant trouble at the moment. But for many of the victims, they are still stuck in near the disaster zones which are much closer to the nuclear plants than anyone in Tokyo. Their main concern is not the nuclear radiation, but finding lost ones and their own survival. Especially for the elderly and sick, medical care and medicine are in critical short supply.

There was a clip on TV showing an old man and his old wife searching for their young son who worked in a post office. They had to search and ask other people if they could see the post office, because everywhere was just piles and piles of debris. At last they found the post office. The old man had to carefully climb on top of a pile of debris to see the top of the post office. He climbed up and shout the name of his son, hoping there will be a response... a week after the tsunami.

I don't think there will be a second run for this donation as interest has already fallen. See how this thread has already fell to the bottom of the page.

Contribution from the bitcoin community is very meaningful. A week after the earthquake, some of the victims are getting their first bowl of hot soup. Let us hope this contribution can help as many people as possible.
