If you’re not familiar with SAFECAST, they are a group of level-headed individuals who, from the onset of the Fukushima disaster, have been measuring the radiation levels around the country. They have developed and produced geiger counters specially-designed for this project. They operate on donations. Good news? Global Giving is having a fundraiser for them. From their web site:

Our friends at Global Giving did this last year and it was incredibly helpful for us, so they’ve decided to do it again. From March 1st to March 15th they will be matching donations 100%, and on March 11th they will match 200%! The trick is there is a limited amount of matching funds available so if they are used up before the end of this campaign then matching stops. What this means is if you’ve been considering making a (tax-deductible) donation to Safecast, doing it now multiplies your impact greatly. Here’s the link to donate. You can also follow along and see how the matching program is going using this leaderboard . Thank you so much for helping us continue this work!

So, if you have a few extra yen/dollars/lira/pounds/francs, make a donation – ESPECIALLY ON 11 March!!!
