Donations to Japan via Tokyo Hackerspace

Akiba (freaklabs) published this list of items needed/requested in Japan. Tokyo Hackerspace has taken on the responsibility of distributing them to folks and organizations that need them. He writes:

if you want to send material donations, you can send them to us at the hackerspace and we can box them up into care packages and have runners distribute them to the local drop points for relief efforts. Here is a list of what’s needed, compiled from various organizations and also hackerspace members. We deliberately trimmed items that are heavy due to international shipping costs.

Here is a partial list of items they’ve requested:

  • ear plugs
  • earphones
  • eye masks
  • baby bottles
  • powdered baby formula
  • energy bars
  • portable water tanks (collapsible)
  • portable water filters
  • lanterns
  • first aid kits
  • dust masks
  • soaps
  • towels
  • blankets
  • gloves
  • flash lights
  • slippers
  • candles
  • lighters

  • aspirin/ibuprofen
  • sanitizing gel
  • paper plates/cups/spoons/forks/chopsticks

  1. Actually, used items are mostly okay. Earplugs and dust masks would be nasty but we can wash baby bottles. Thanks for putting this up 🙂

  2. I didn’t think you could ship pocketknives to Japan legally.

  3. Jose at HeatSync Labs and his family gave a short talk on the Tokyo Hackerspace solar lantern project last night. We’ve just heard back that we can get the pcbs donated. We looking for solar cells and other components now. If anybody’s interested in helping contact Jose at heatsynclabs dot org.

  4. Hi! Just sent some soap, candles, matches, spoons, energy bars, napkins, and a coat!

  5. @Eddie — terrific! you rock! 🙂
