Japan Earthquake/Tsunami Relief and Donation InformationThere have been many disasters in the natural and political world lately, but it seems that the quake/tsunami disaster that happened in the Japan/Pacific area just yesterday, 3/11/11, has caught the eye of the entire world. The events have completely devastated most of the area and the death toll is already way too high, not to mention the ever growing list of missing people and pets. The Japanese government has now officially asked for help.
I urge you, if you can, to open your hearts to these people. There are several ways you can do this. Without help from around the world, the communities will have extreme difficulties rebuilding. Here are ways you can help:
1. Keep the people in your thoughts.
2. Participate in the fandom auction on Livejournal that has been set up - you can offer writing, material goods, art, food, anything - or you can wait until the auctions begin to bid on something. Here is the link for more information: Japan Earthquake/Tsunami Auctions @ LJ.
3. Donate to the Red Cross - they're a very kind, giving organization who have helped those in need all around the world. Either text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 (it will automatically be added to your phone bill) or go to The Red Cross to learn more information about donating that way.
4. Donate to Doctors Without Borders, another worthy charity/relief group.
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend.

New Author Spotlight is up!We have a new Author Spotlight up, and this time, author/admin Rainbowcolored7 has been kind enough to give us a little of her time. We'd love it if you'd give her interview a read and leave some love for her on the way out! Thank you! ♥

Thank You!!I have a very exciting announcement. I have just sent the payment to keep THF online to our web host, and we are now solid until mid July! :) I want to thank everyone who donated and support us in this time of need. I realize that perhaps donating to keep a fan fiction site online may not seem like the worthiest cause, but we are a community, and we all depend on the site being there. :)
It's because of all of you that we made this possible. Thank you, and thank each other. Now, a number of you have sent in donations through the mail and you might think you're too late - this isn't true. There are other costs that go into THF that will be paid later this month (upkeep, Schrei Box, advertising, maintenance), so don't feel that you didn't make the deadline. THF is a constantly needy beast and pretty much always needing some kind of financial support! So to you - thank you for your kindness. :)
Now, I am sure we've all heard about the terrible flooding in Australia. It's devastating and a lot of our members live there, and are being affected. :( In the spirit of kindness, generosity, and donations, I'd like you to consider donating to the Queensland Flood Relief. It is truly a disaster down there - just search on youtube for the Toowoomba flooding, I was horrified - and it would mean a lot if you'd consider helping. Again, any amount helps.
So that's it. Thank you again for keeping the site online, and have a wonderful week. You've earned it!

Donation Countdown!!We have already raised most of the amount we need to keep THF online - there is only a fraction left! Please consider donating. We would appreciate it so much, and any amount helps. Three dollars, six dollars, ten dollars, more - it doesn't matter. Thank you for reading, and if your friends like THF, spread the word!

Donation TimeHi everyone!
It's that time of year again where we need to pay for THF to be able to stay online. We haven't yet reached our goal, and we would appreciate it so much if you could find it in your hearts to donate. It doesn't have to be a lot - it could be a dollar, two dollars, anything!
We really appreciate your constant support and loyal membership. When THF has needed help, we've all banded together in the past to make it work. Please consider helping to keep THF online! :) You don't need a Paypal account, just a credit or debit card.
