AddThis Shares with RedCross to Support Japan

AddThis enables you to share articles, videos, and more to any social site on the web. But today, we’re asking you to share something more to help the people of Japan.

Words cannot begin to describe the damage, physical and emotional, that the people of Japan are currently experiencing following the massive earthquake and tsunami that ravaged their island country on March 11. The nation faces a long road of recovery and reconstruction — a road they cannot afford to walk down alone.

That is why we encourage you to donate to the Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. The Red Cross is an amazing organization that is dedicated to assisting disaster relief and we strongly support their efforts.

To show our support for this cause, we will be giving millions of people an opportunity to make a donation in support of the victims in Japan after every share made with AddThis across the 8MM sites on the web. After sharing with AddThis this week, we hope you will ‘share again’ with the people in Japan – they need our help.

    How do I turn off the new donation box after I share something? It comes up everytime and I find it annoying after the first time.

  • Watching the news it nearly makes a person cry. Such a good cause.

    @A. Thompson – it is not possible to turn off but it has always been that way with the post-share message. Sorry for any inconvenience.

  • We rolled this feature out quickly and will go back to normal in a couple days. The team appreciates everyone’s support as we run the promotion. Thanks, Hooman (CEO)

  • Your doing a great job. Looks like Bing can use some of your blogging and PR experience. Their earthquake promotion was sniffed out very quickly.

  • Wow what great details. Properly Delivered!
