One month ago, a massive 9.0 earthquake and one of the worst tsunamis in history struck northeastern Japan. Many people in the most impacted areas still have immediate needs for shelter and supplies.

After the crisis people across the globe have shown solidarity and have sent countless messages of hope and support to the people of Japan. Some of them showed sympathy for the victims.

In order to restore the spirit and confidence of those affected, technology giant Google has launched messagesforjapan.com on the site, you can submit messages and have them automatically translated to Japanese by Google Translate. Of course, people who speak Japanese can also post messages in Japanese if they'd like. You can see messages on the world map, browse them in their original language or in Japanese and donate to the rebuilding effort, the company said on its official blog post.

Donations raised via the Crisis Response page have exceeded five million dollars so far, the post added.
