Google Launches Message For Japan
Japan has had to deal with a lot of difficulty of late and the rest of the world hasn't let that go unnoticed. There's been support and aid but sometimes just a kind word or two can help a person get back on their feet. And that's exactly what Google is facilitating with Messages For Japan, a website that will translate messages from any language into Japanese.
A video, created by Johannes Leonardo, promotes the site which also accepts donations for the relief and rebuilding efforts through six organizations: the Japanese Red Cross Society, JCIE (Japan Center for International Exchange), Save the Children, International Medical Corp, Give2Asia and Globalgiving.
The launch is being touted this week though the site appears to have actually been launched last week. Oh well. We're not complaining. It's all for a good cause.
