Fill Up Your iPod with Songs of Love for Japan --- Quickly

If you're looking for a way to help out survivors of the Japan tsunami, and you like rare and unreleased music, have a look at Songs of Love for Japan. It's 100 songs for $100. Proceeds go to Shelterbox, a charity that delivers boxes of aid to disaster-stricken areas. Artists on this compilation include Tori Amos, Ani DiFranco, Sara Bareilles, Wolf Parade, The Submarines, Brandi Carlile, Charlotte Martin, Jeffrey Gaines and Josh Ritter. And the music is only on sale for a bit longer. Songs of Love for Japan grew out of a conversation at the last SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, after a 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck Japan on March 11.

You can download the 100 tracks and make the donation via PayPal. There's also a Limited Compilation for $20.

The full box of music is currently "on sale" through 10 a.m. Eastern April 21, and different $20 compilations are being offered daily.

Come to think of it, that headline may be out of date. Maybe it should say, "your iPhone" or "smartphone." Either way, any way, consider making a donation if you want to help support the project.

You can check out more info on Shelterbox (a Rotary Club project) via Charity Navigator.

After the sale is over, Shelterbox and other charities helping Japan will still be around, and in need.
