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. The dentist helped victims of the Hanshin Awaji earthquake in 1995 by making artificial teeth. Donated tooth brushes must be new and unopened. The Red Cross will forward the brushes on Mar. 27.
Donation deadline: Mar. 26, 17:00.
