Lea Michele Tweets: "So devastating to hear about the huge earthquake and tsunami Japan. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone there."

By Popular Demand…

As if giving weren’t enough in and of itself, here are seven more who are giving vocally on behalf of the Jewish people.
FYI: When you do good, you do good, on behalf of the Jews or anonymously.  As long as your aid is helping those needing relief, I am not concerned with the denomination of the avenue.
