Toothbrush donations wanted

A dentist in Miyawaka City, Fukuoka is collecting donations of toothbrushes for displaced persons after the Tohoku earthquake, which he says are important to prevent infections.

Donation deadline: Mar. 26, 17:00.

    You posted this on the 24th and the deadline is 48 hours later? I am interested in helping but what is the point of posting this a mere 48 hours before the deadline?
