The winning bid on the tea package I offered for [livejournal.com profile] help_japan was $55! Haven't heard from the mods or the winner yet but I'm excited about putting it together XD

Incidentally, I have THE EU TEA MOUNTAIN in my kitchen so if anyone would like similar packages, in return for a more modest donation lol, I would love to put them together for you! :D I might ask for a dollar or two towards shipping but if you want a jiffy bag stuffed full of assorted teas and maybe some biscuits too, let me know! :D I know I have a few tea enthusiasts on my friends list ^_~ You'd just have to donate to the Red Cross or DRI or JEARS or another charity of your choice, forward me the confirmation email or send me a screnshot, and send me your address. Any takers? :D?

I'm really proud of all Johnnys has been doing to raise money. I was actually a little surprised, I don't know why, but it's great that they've been organising events and sending their equipment etc. And I'm really impressed how much money Johnnys fandom has raised! Nearly $30000 from the [livejournal.com profile] arashi_on, everyone's amazing! Ngl I've been milking the opportunity to get as much for fandom as I can out of it, haha, including several translations of TV shows (forthcoming >.>) and a gorgeous piece of art from [livejournal.com profile] greyautist who draws the beautiful chibis! ♥ You can see the adorable Yasuba pic she drew for me here! :D

On an unrelated note I posted my [livejournal.com profile] jentfic_remix fic here. It was a complete cop-out because I have so much on lately both fic-wise and work-wise, that I couldn't come up with anything more creative >_< Oh well, plenty more challenges to come! XD I have a few charity fics to write and I'm excited for [livejournal.com profile] k8_exchange! One and a half more days to sign up! :D

Lol so much to do. ๅˆ‡่…นใชใ†!

Eighters! Further to my posts earlier, the good people at [livejournal.com profile] arashi_on have offered the use of their PayPal and master post for our own fandom fundraiser! Johnnys fandom is coming together and going all J-Friends to raise money for Japan. ♥

If you're not sure what's involved, it's basically this:

it essentially works like a local bazaar or marketplace where fans can offer up or "sell" their services, such as graphics, translations, subs and more, for small amounts of money and others can "buy" them, with all the proceeds going into one account for donations.

So it's like [livejournal.com profile] help_japan, but specifically for Johnnys! So if people post twice, you get the twice the chances to get something you want, and twice the chances to help raise money. :]

[livejournal.com profile] arashi_on are having two branches of their fundraiser:

1. Fandom services - eg fics, graphics, translations, art

2. A garage sale where you can sell physical goods such as magazines, concert goods, CDs, shop photos, crafts etc.

I already compiled a post of K8-related services but now if you have something to offer, as well as money to donate, please do get involved! :D

The mods at [livejournal.com profile] arashi_on have been super-helpful and really efficient so please please help out in any way you can. :]

OK so I changed my mind and decided to take part in [livejournal.com profile] help_japan: my thread is here! (I wasn't going to cos I wasn't sure I could fulfil it, but hey, there's no time limit so I think I should manage it eventually! >.>)

I also compiled a list of everyone in [livejournal.com profile] arashi_on who's also willing to provide K8 stuff to raise money! There's quite a few under here: )

K8-specific posts start on page 9 of this post! I'll try and keep indexing these too - hopefully we'll have a good turn-out! :D

[livejournal.com profile] arashi_on are having a fundraising effort where people are selling items and also offering fics, translations, art, icons etc, and I was thinking it'd be great if we could have such a thing in Kanjani8 fandom too. I've communicated with the [livejournal.com profile] arashi_on mod about stealing her post and I'm hoping she'll say it's OK to just lift it.

I've never got involved in fandom fundraising before but I feel like this is especially relevant to us as fans of Japanese stuff, and many of us will have been to Japan or known people there or from there. So would people be interested/able to help if I tried to put something together? :X

[Edit] The part I'm most in the dark about is the PayPal side of things. How do I set it up, and how does the money then get where it needs to be? :? Hope the Arashi mod can guide me through that! ^^'
